JUNK

Albert A., Newegg
5 February 2014
  • Summary: Don't bother. It is a cludgy unit at best and forget programming more than a handful of stations which takes forever btw.
  • Pros: When it worked it was fine although tedious to program.
  • Cons: It acted up when I added more stations, displayed funny characters. I knew not to click one but eventually did. It bricked and there is no recovery I used it all of 2 weeks. Absolute garbage. The internet is full of the same complaints. It bricks easily for no reason.

MORE EXPENSIVE THAN YOU THINK!!!

Digitalis, Amazon

  • Summary: Let me make this clear right away: This clock will NOT remember your wireless security WPA2 password. Sometimes it's because the power went out, sometimes it happens for seemingly no reason at all.

Bad Purchase

Joseph R., Newegg
8 May 2012
  • Summary: If the LCD backlight had an auto adjust feature as well as a much wider brightness range, this would be a five-egg rating.
  • Pros: Internet radio, a lot of great features, good sound
  • Cons: Even on the lowest setting, the LCD backlight is far too bright for a bedroom at night. In short, it's an alarm clock that prevents one from falling asleep first. Unfortunately, I didn't take the time to read enough reviews to learn this before purchasing, nor did I notice the Limited Replacement...

Don't Buy If You Want Both Channels

George M., Newegg
12 March 2012
  • Summary: After a few days of listening to this unit, something didn't sound right. It was playing back one channel. I contacted Aluratek and they stated that even though there is only one speaker the audio is summed together for a mono mix.
  • Pros: Not Much...certainly not customer service
  • Cons: One channel of audio...they claim that's how it's suppose to be

Great for variety

Anonymous, Newegg
3 March 2012
  • Summary: I don't use the AP feature or alarm and haven't explored the web site to set up stations.
  • Pros: Bought for Internet radio, FM, and streaming from my UPnP server. Works great for my needs. Gives me virtually any audio that I want to listen to. Sound quality is good for a smallish speaker. The remote is decent enough and laid out fairly well. Good experience with Aluratek support after a firm...
  • Cons: Had some issues with wireless connecting with WPA2 so I updated the firmware. The update never completed properly and left the radio in a quirky state (date and time lost, garbled display). However, I reverted back to a previous version of the firmware and got my wireless to connect and has been ...

Ron H., Newegg

  • Pros: Works well although audio is not great, not bad, just not great. Small and compact in size. Being an insomniac I purchased it for use at night, using a pillow speaker, so would not disturb my wife. Love classical jazz and can find a lot of that on the Internet.
  • Cons: Said it was plug and play but not where I live. Had to add a wireless router to get it working. Between that and the radio it took me almost a week to get everything up and working. Wish the audio was a bit better but still sounds relatively good. What can you expect from small size?

Great simple internet radio!

Dave C., Newegg
28 October 2011
  • Summary: I've not had any issues with it losing the network. I listen to a lot of internet radio and its nice not to have my pc or phone on to do this. I have installed the firmware 1.50(beta3). Maybe cause of this I don't have the issues where people complain that when they turn off their radio...
  • Pros: Overall a very simple setup. A lot of stations available and sound quality is pretty decent for what it is. Has the ability to plug into your home theater system. Will play mp3s off a USB drive. You can setup radio stations via the web or the radio itself
  • Cons: It will not play music from my USB hard drive that is plugged into my router. Media server option seems to only work with PC that is left on. Remote has short range and you have to pretty much be directly in front of the radio for it to work. Connecting to network is easy but radio is too fussy. ...

You Pay Your Money and You Take Your Chances

Dude "MM", Amazon
24 August 2011
  • Summary: After spending three hours trying to make a connection by WIFI and downloading firmware and trying various settings I boxed it up and sent it back. I am thinking that there is an ongoing problem with the connectivity with secured networks.

Great!

Tzintzun A., Newegg
21 July 2011
  • Summary: I've set up other brands of internet radio for clients, and they always complain that their box forgets their wi-fi settings. My Aluratek hasn't done that once!
  • Pros: Works well, simpler interface than Logitech, doesn't have silly and complicated extra features. Great value for the price. Not very loud but sound is very clear.
  • Cons: No thumping base, but what do you expect? :)

Great product....awkward interface.

Anonymous, Newegg
12 May 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this for my wifes 90 year old grandmother who was unable to listen to her favorite jacksonville, fl station from her home in Ocala, fl. I checked and Jones college radio streamed its signal, so I picked up this unit for her. Tried it out myself first to set it up for her.
  • Pros: Love the ability to connect to wireless network and stream internet radio. Included remote is handy dandy. Clean lines and decent looking. Abiltiy to connect to home sterio is cool and USB connection for mp3's is flexible. Great product over all and reasonable price. Love NewEgg.
  • Cons: Interface is somewhat awkward. Would have been nice to have preset buttons on unit for favorite stations. 90 year old Grandmother only has to push remote button 5 times to get to her programed favorite radio station, but then all is well.
