Summary: This radio was purchased as a gift for my wife but we both listen to it though not very often. We are quite pleased with it. The volume is good and we love the " Favorites' feature. We are enjoying it and have nothing negative to say about it, hopefully it will stay that way.
Summary: This is an excellent product. I use it mostly to pick up AVRO "Baroque around the clock", but I have found another couple of dozen stations that interest me. There is no external FM antenna, so its FM sensitivity is limited. The batteries make it possible to use it anywhere you can get a wifi signal, but, unfortunately, if there is a power outage (not uncommon in the forested hills of Oakland), the alarm will not function. I highly recommend this.
Summary: This is just what I was looking for and at a reasonable price. When I am working in my office or home office, I constantly listen to internet radio on my computer and I wanted this so I'd be able to listen easily throughout the house. I also am picky about sound quality so I wanted a source that had good sound, understanding that any product like this won't sound like a quality sound system although you can plug it into your stereo and enhance the sound that way if you...
Summary: I ordered the Vtech IS9181 from Amazon on Sunday and plugged it in Monday evening. Setup was fairly easy thanks to well written instructions, and it linked right up with our computer network. I don't believe I can share iTunes or Pandora with the Vtech, but there is a vast number of stations available via the menu.
Great radio made by a cpmpany who seems to hate customers and does not want to suppor their products...

Summary: I bought this unit after returning a different Internet radio at Amazon. This unit look promising and the ratings were good. It is a bit larger than I would have expected. No big deal, it was a desk unit and I can live with the size. The sound quality was 10x better than the unit I returned and far far far better than my Sony Dash (which in the end is a different animal). I like the under sub-woofer in the unit, it really sounds good.
Summary: SECURITY ALERT ***IMPORTANT Update - Jun 18, 2013 - While I continue to love the sound coming out of this radio I am NOW deeply concerned and troubled by what I'm discovering. Anyone owning one of these radios should be aware of the privacy threat posed by owning one of these. I would say there is a high risk for losing your personal data.
Summary: This is the third dedicated (not part of a TV etc) internet radio in our home. I bought it for its battery capability but it has proved to be so good that it has taken the place of one of the other internet radios and is plugged in all the time. The sound quality is amazingly good - the speakers are clear and it even has pretty good bass for its size. Pros: Great sound. Easy to setup and use. Fast tuning time when plugged in. Looks great. Readable display.
