Slacker Portable

PC Magazine
9 June 2008
  • Conclusion: Typically, a player with as many glitches as this one would get a lower rating, but the innovative Slacker Portable does a good job of letting you take customized Internet radio with you, and it helps you learn about your favorite artists and discover new music.
  • Pros: Refreshes music automatically via Wi-Fi. Huge screen for album art, artist bios. Can also store MP3s and WMAs. Ability to ban songs you hate.
  • Cons: Bulky for a PMP. Touchstrip control doesn't work well. Jumpy playback. No video or photo support.

  • Summary: The Playlist function, on the other hand, is nearly useless in its current iteration—but for us, the Slacker Player’s big attraction is that we don’t need to make playlists. UPDATE: This story was edited on April 7, 2008 to reflect a new firmware update that resolved our complaint about how long the display remains active.
  • Pros: Music discovery, great sound, fantastic display, artist bios and album reviews.
  • Cons: Short battery life, small memory, sloppy Power button.
