Power supplies do not last

Amazon Customer "MLSBurger", Amazon
3 March 2010
  • Summary: During my second year of ownership, the power supply stopped functioning. I found that many other owners of this radio have experienced the same problem. Some of them found a source that will fix the units for around $100. I decided to use my $100 and purchase another type of Internet radio instead.

Stops working. Company does not support.

Michael Chmilar, Amazon
4 May 2009
  • Summary: I like the features and audio quality of this clock radio. Unfortunately, the quality is very poor. Mine died after 1.5 years of use. The company has not responded to my requests about getting the radio fixed. I cannot recommend this product.

Badly designed power supply, FIXED!

Howard G. "Howie G", Amazon
12 April 2009
  • Summary: Before you buy, check the Roku Forums regarding the radio's power supply. Mine failed after 15 months, which appears to be about average. Roku will not stand behind this product, so when it fails, and it will, you are out of luck (and $300+).

Use caution if this is your alarm clock

Earl Mcgehee "earl49", Amazon
3 October 2008
  • Summary: I have used two of these radios for about a year and have had no hardware problems. Like everyone else I wish the menus were a little easier to use. My primary gripe is the clock.

Difficulty in setting up

Black Dog, Amazon
28 July 2008
  • Summary: This product took much longer than necessary to setup. 1) Your router must broadcast in Wireless B which is not explained in instructions manual. I had to change my settings on my router to broadcast both in g and b.

Ready for the Mass Market?

29 May 2008
  • Summary: I've had this radio for a week now, and i'm almost done configuring it. The sound is fine, but the Bose is much better. I bought it to be able to listen to internet radio stations, and it seems to work pretty well for that (although i was surprised to learn that several of the BBC channels -- the...

Great Concept, Nice Sound

Richard L. Trinkner, Amazon
1 May 2008
  • Summary: I've owned the Roku Radio for 19 months. It has changed my fundamental attitudes toward radio in that I now consider radio to be a global broadcast for most stations. As an person who tries to maintain an international perspective (and who has lived in 6 countries for extended periods of time), I...

very poor quality radio, avoid Roku

fotobug, Amazon
3 March 2008
  • Summary: Updated December 2009, death notice: I enjoyed it while it lasted, but now after only 20 months my Roku radio is dead, like many others have reported. There are a few other companies that make these radios, avoid Roku. Original review: I've had the radio for 4 months, no problems.

I love this radio

slim2none, Amazon
6 January 2008
  • Summary: I'm thrilled with the Roku Soundbridge System. The sound is great. I can listen to my Itunes playlist as well. The quality is excellent. If you want to listen to AM you probably will have to purchase an antenna. I definitely recommend this product.
