Beautiful sound. Nice size

Summary: This took less than 5 minutes to set up. Nothing mysterious, nothing opaque. Clear, simple on-screen instructions. Beautiful sound. Nice size, too. It is easy to find space for Squeezebox on a crowded surface. No wonder people are buying 2 or 3 of these for different rooms!
Summary: Absolutely loved this radio for the three years that it worked. I have the black radio. Unplugged it for a week while on vacation. Plugged it in upon my return and it has never powered up again. I've researched this problem on the Internet and found that I am among many others with the same problem. Google "Squeezebox Radio won't turn on or power up". I've tried many of the suggested remedies (holding various keys and combinations while plugging in the power supply).
Summary: Impressive sound for a small unit! We use the Squeezebox in a veterinary clinic. We hook an ipod up to it and turn on Pandora taking turns with different genres of music. The sound is impressive for its size and it fills the room with music. It would rate 5 stars if it was a bit more affordable.
Summary: i love these little radios and have 4 of them. they use Radio Time to aggregate their radio stations, which is also on the Roku box and Charter internet. very easy to search and often tells what program is on before tuning in a station. lots of cool apps to add to the radio. news, weather, flicker pictures, and other radio networks. I use public radio from the u.s., Canada, Australia, new Zealand, the u.k., all in English all the time.
Summary: I purchased this radio as a gift for my brother, who is blind. The raised buttons and knobs allow him to make use of the tuning features. The 'sounds' each button and knob emit also let him know he's completed a function.The sound is crystal clear, set up was very quick and easy . There are sometimes when I need to let him know what's on the screen, but once he got used to how to navigate, and memorized the steps, he was off and running, and so thrilled to hear music...
Summary: there are gadgets and gadgets...this one you will use a lot. Great bedside companion. Although it has one speaker it sounds good as a beside radio. I wont repeat what others have said but focus instead on other areas. There is a great support forum on logitech for this and there are a lot of fun and interesting third party apps that are always being developed. I have not had problems with software bugs so cannot comment.
Pros: good quality build, looks good, well designed, fun to use, easy to use
Cons: not a weakness but would have liked to see battery pack and remote included in unit as opposed to separate purchase and would really like to see illuminated buttons
