Summary: The Slacker G1 unit is horrible. I restored the unit to default settings and try to load my stations and it doesnt work. I tried updating firmware and that doesnt work either. The unti will not load my stations through wired or wi-fi connection.
Summary: I am an avid slacker listener online. I even pay for the premium service for unlimited song skips. When I got this radio, I was so disappointed. You can not have custom stations, you can only skip 5 songs, and the refresh your stations takes hours of being connected to a wireless.
Summary: I bought the G1 & G2. I wanted to use the G2 at the gym since it is smaller and the G1 at home mostly. Both failed me. The G2 'failed' in enough time so I was able to send back and get a full refund from Amazon.
Summary: Great concept, FAIL-ed product. Bought this with high hopes, which were quickly smashed to bits. After 2 weeks of good use, it went into the classic Slacker death-spiral. No firmware or debugging has helped, it just keeps getting worse every day.
Summary: I purchased the G1 a few weeks ago and haven't been able to get it to sync 100% yet. The device is infested with bugs, crashes at random, will not sync either wirelessly or via USB and has terribly slow response to keypresses. I don't want to fumble with a music player.
