Summary: The WFR-1 is a good internet radio. I upgraded to the WFR-1 from a Grace Mondo. Compared with the Mondo, the WFR-1 sounds better and works better as an internet radio. It was way faster to set up on my WiFi network.
Summary: I have three Grace, one logitech, and one vtech internet radios. The Sangean is the best. It was easy to set up, the remote has a memory for 10 stations just by pressing one of the 10 buttons.
Summary: I had previously ordered a Grace Mondo, which would not connect to the wi-fi, so returned it and got the Sangean. This connected immediately, and has never had any trouble since. My only reservations: anytime it is unplugged, even for a minute, it loses the date/time info.
Summary: I purchased this after visiting my buddy who had one. I couldn't believe the sound quality it had. I needed something for out at the pool. You can't buy a ghetto blaster anymore, and I don't know how to use an I-Pod, let alone having to buy and install all the songs on one.
Summary: This is a great radio has a few flaws but otherwise it does it all good sound and looks. The only thing is the light stays on all the time,the instructions are hard to understand and they need to be rewritten.
Summary: I don't usually write reviews, but this product deserves one. It is a truly amazing radio. It was very easy to set up. The connection to my wireless router was as simple as most other wireless devices. I am amazed some reviewers found the set up difficult. The sound quality is exceptional.
Summary: Using the Sangean WFR1 Internet radio a couple of weeks already. It is easy to use and it was easy to set up. It looks good, too. I would have liked it totally if: 1. Would display the details of the piece being played.
Summary: I primarily chose this radio over others (including the Logitech Squeezebox) because of its good looks. But it's a very good radio as well. The menu structure is logical, the display is easy to read, there is a cool web interface to easily surf all stations and add them to your favorites.
Summary: I wanted an internet/FM clock radio and this one got some good reviews. Pros: Great retro look, just like the AM radios of my childhood. Beautifully finished real wood case, a single big knob, and a yellow glowing display.
