Summary: Works great, only problem is that the display LED's tend to burn out, however I was able to replace them & now all is well. But caution! If you don't have anyway to replace the LED's yourself, don't purchase one of these because......
Summary: I bought three of these: one as a gift, and two for my home. One unit arrived with the wrong power cord. I had to fax them all kinds of documentation, and I'm still waiting (two weeks) for the right power cord. Another unit has a dim display, hard to read.

Summary: The radio it self is amazing and its a shame that everyone I know with one of these have the same exact problems. However, My display is dark and can not be read even in pitch black I can HOWEVER use a flash light to see whats on the screen ...so you can still operate it.
Summary: This is a bargain and not to be overlooked. I've seen units that do exactly the same thing for over $400 and in short, this unit is all the wifi radio you could ever want. It sets up seamlessly with no work at all... and it has a zillion channels for every tasted and need.
Great Out of the BOX and easy to fix possible dark display issues

Summary: This unit works great, it has a nice search feature and is reliable, the internal speakers do need some more high frequency response, low end frequency response is just fine. Some people tell about a dark display after time, it just needs the back light replaced when this happens, it can still be...
Summary: DO NOT BUY ANY COBY PRODUCTS!!! This radio model is a defective product and by other reviews a known defective product. The LED display WILL burn out in a short time. One of my 4 IR850 radios burnt out in 2 days the second one in 2 months the third one in 6 months and the forth one in 8 months.
Summary: This Coby could have been a great internet radio. It has good sound,& works well in general, except..... The dimming of the display, as many here have said. This is not an "IF", but a "WHEN" sort of thing. Mine actually lasted longer than most - a little over 2 years.
