A little buggy, but good product

Summary: A great way to add music to every room without having to run wires or blare the stereo too loud in one room to hear it in another. You can have something different in each room or synchronize them o play the same thing in multiple rooms. The sound quality is very nice, but not stereo.
Summary: I owned a Logitech and Grace radio for years and prefer all the qualities and features of the Logitech, so when it came time to buy another, I got another Squeezebox. There is only one major shortcoming designwise as far as I am concerned.
Summary: Great sound quality, lots of options for listening, good looking. I needed to read the manual to get it started and refer to it more often than I normally need to. I love the radio. I have lived in areas with terrible reception so this is just fantastic.
Summary: Everything I thought it would be plus more to come as I read up on it.
Pros: Love this thing! It was what I was expecting to get. It was simple to hook up to my wireless network. Though I did have to go back to my wireless router and change my password setup. It needed a 10 character password and I had mine setup to use a 5 character. Simple to do. After a quick update it...
Cons: I wish they had made the battery pack more generic or included it with the player. Also, It would have been nice if Iheart radio was included with the standard setup. I still need to search for a way to use Iheart.
Summary: Good looking radio, sounds good, and great choice of stations worldwide. It does not work if the computer is off. Logitech support is non-existent, and if you are lucky to get a real person, you are on hold for a long time.
Summary: Elegant design and easy/intuitive to use. Overall very pleased but what keeps me from giving it five stars across the board is its sound. There are no tone controls, which is surprising in this price class and that leaves you a sound that is in the bass-heavy realm.
Summary: I am a long time owner of the squeeze box and I am giving 4 stars. Yes, it has some quirks but overall it has provided many, many hours of listening enjoyment. There are times you may have to unplug the device to reset it. If that is a deal breaker for you then I would not recomend it for you.
Summary: We went from a digital bedside alarm clock with a terrible radio to the Logitech Squeezebox Radio. The difference was night and day. First off, we love the device especially since we have invested time in building our Pandora stations. We were choosing between the Logitech and a Sony Dash.
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...
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 ...
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.
