Summary: My first disappointment is that I thought this player would run on DC (rechargeable batteries), as well as AC. Guess I didn't read the product details close enough. So, what I thought would be a more portable player, is now a stationary one. It's not easy to drag around from room to room. It has a home on the kitchen counter, and that's where it stays. Still, it has great sound for its size and seems to be well constructed.
Summary: We're really happy with our Streamium. It looks and sounds great. The programming should be a little more intuitive and the clock has a tendency to change time-zones, unexplained, minor complaints when compared to richness of sound and access to variety. Buy it, you'll be happy!
Summary: This player works great. I have 600+ CDs that I ripped into 192kbps WMA format. I stored the files on an Iomega NAS hard drive connected to my router (802.11g using WPA2 security). After entering the WPA2 security key, the Streamium detected that NAS drive instantly. I was streaming my music within 15 minutes of opening the box! Pros: 1. Small/lightweight, easy to move around the house. 2. Built-in speakers sound great 3. 802.11g and WPA2 capability 4. Good range..

Summary: For the way I use this, I am very pleased with the Philips Streamium NP2900/37 Network Music Player. For it's compact size, the quality and power of the sound that comes from this little machine just blows me away. I do not use it to stream music from my computer, an area where I understand there are some compatibility issues for other users. I use it mainly to tune in internet radio stations.
Summary: I LOVE it! Especially how my music library is basically unlimited with Rhapsody. It has REALLY good sound quality. It's great for parties. Guests can look up and add whatever song they want to the playlist. It's like an internet juke box. The only annoying thing is that when you're performing a search, you have to type songs in like a text message. It takes a while. Also there's a digital out, but no easy way to connect regular external speakers.
Pros: Easy to Set Up, Fits Well, Lightweight, Stylish
Summary: Length:: 0:42 Mins The Philips NP2900/37 is a big step forward from previous offerings (I tried NP1100, which fell flat for me); however it still leaves quite a bit to be desired for people with large iTunes libraries. ~Pros~ 1) Design - it is really attractive and has a small footprint 2) Connectivity - no trouble whatsoever getting it to hook up to my network 3) Lots of preset internet stations (I'm not sure if they self-populate/update though) 4) Decent sound for the...
Summary: Philips Streamium NP2900 "First things first. Since getting this Internet radio I have spent about 6 weeks trying to trouble shoot what is essentially a failed device. Initially I was very happy to deal with the tech support people as they were in the USA and I was happy about that. I once did tech support for a software company and all our jobs went off shore. That said, I became very frustrated with the lack of support I was actually getting.
Summary: I couldn't be more pleased at how easy it was to setup and use this radio. Almost as quickly as I could get this radio out of it's packaging, did I have it plugged in and playing music from our wireless network. I skipped past the instructions initially and was able to get everything up and running just by playing around with the remote (took only a few minutes).
