Best gadget Ive purchased in a long, long time.
7 September 2010
Summary: To sum up...if you can get this for the price I paid, its a steal. You cant find a better product if you enjoy listening to music. Logitech have always been #1 in computer related accessories and this product is a good example why that is.
Pros: Does what it says on the box...and very well. This little beauty has been in my kitchen for the best part of a year now and has kept me entertained. For such a small little piece of electronics, it produces very good sound. Im not an audiophile or sound snob, but I can guarantee this will impress you. I did have some setup issues and called the dedicated Logitech Squeezebox help line and they had me up and running in no time. Very polite and knowledgeable.
Cons: I docked a star because of the firmware issues that have plagued this almost perfect box. Its a shame the software sometimes lets it down. Dont get me wrong, it functions great 99% of the time. but sometimes you will find yourself having to push a whole bunch of buttons to get it where it should go to. Talking of that, the data entry dial is a PITA...I have a 30+ digit security key and entering that is no fun.
Summary: This is a good product in general. In terms of functioning as global products, Logitech needs to work on supporting MMS. The user interface also needs some work to ease repetition of browsing folders and songs.
Pros: The Squeezebox radio is well built and the finish looks great. Sound quality is very good. Setup is pretty easy. Audio stream is mostly reliable.
Cons: The Squeezebox radio does not support Microsofts MMS streaming protocol. A lot of radio stations, especially in Asia, use this protocol. Also, we cannot bookmark a music folder so I have to browse every time if I want to play all the songs in that folder.
Summary: Just bought a second unit for a different toom. Really like this radio. Especially love the ability to synchronize them together which allows you to listen to them in unison or independently. Researched the Grace Mondo radio which looks good but it's not a logitech radio and thus won't be able to be synched along with my extisting units.. So stuck with the squeezebox. The sound quality is superior and the radio over-all is built solidly.
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...
Excerpt: "So I've owned the Logitech Squeezebox radio for about 18 months and use it as a bedside radio and it's still something I really enjoy using. With the price currently at just over £100, you might think this is a little excessive when you can buy a clock radio for under £10 from Argos. So what's so special about this radio? Well, there's no DAB or FM tuner, it's just an internet radio. And what's great is, you can listen to almost any station from ...
Pros: Listen to radio online and stream your mp3 collection
Summary: I managed to get this cheap at Â£100, from someone who'd won it as a prize and didn't need it. After having used it a few hours, I'd still be as happy if I'd payed full whack. Easy enough to set up, the only time-consuming bit was scanning my P.C hard drive. I wll allow I had a head-scratching moment when trying to add my flatmates' library, until I realized with a Homer Simpson "D'oh!" that I was supposed to install the Logitech Server software on his laptop too.
Pros: Sound quality, looks, ease of use, extra features.
Cons: If you put a gun to my head, I might moan the screen could have been bigger, and the online manual a bit more comprehensive.
Great Device for Quality Music Reproduction from Digital Source

Excerpt: "The Logitech Squeezebox Radio is the third product I have bought or been given as a gift. The original Slimdevices company produced the SLIMP3 device in 2001, followed by the very successful Squeezebox trilogy of devices culminating in the most successful device, the Squeezebox 3 (released November 2005). A few other devices were released before Logitech bought the brand. The Radio was released September 2009. ===Squeezebox Background=== The ...
Pros: Sound quality, build quality, multi - room music at a reasonable price, rediscover music
Cons: Wireless can be temperamental, won't fill large rooms, battery option should be included
Summary: When I bought this product, I was overjoyed! I loved how great the sound quality was/ is and it takes little time from unwrapping to playing music. The internet radio buffers quickly and I have not had any skipping which I would often find with my computer. There is an auxilery slot and the product comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack and cable.
Pros: Easy to use and very loud for such a small thing, like my dog.
Cons: Not too keen on how you can't play all songs by an artist from different albums.
