Summary: As of this posting, I took my G1 and refreshed all the stations and played them as expected. I saw the post about Slacker no supporting this G1 device anymore but mine works just fine. unsure what the real problem is. Obviously since mine still works, I must say that it still should be purchased.
Summary: I bought this device from Amazon for [..], so I wasn't expecting a lot, even though I knew it was listed previously for [..]. First off, I am a big user of Pandora. So naturally, when I caught wind of Slacker at the SD forums, I jumped on it and don't regret this purchase. If you are a music lover of any persuasion, you will appreciate this gadget.
Summary: I've had my Slacker player for about a month now and use it almost every day. It's a great device if you like listening to music and don't want to buy (or steal) thousands of dollars worth of MP3's. Even if you do own a huge MP3 library, Slacker is still interesting if you don't want to have to constantly manage the content of your iPod and your playlists. Slacker sound quality is way better than XM/Sirius or FM radio.
Not quite 5-star but Slacker is an awesome and unique "personal radio" experience!

Summary: Well, I have had my 8GB 40-station Slacker Portable for almost a month now, and I must agree with "Patent Guy", the Slacker experience is quite amazing! I use my Slacker Portable everyday, especially during my driving commute each day. I also have Sirius Satellite radio along with the Sirius Stiletto 100 Portable radio, I use both the Slacker and the Stiletto, but they are two different devices and services which complement each other.
Summary: The Slacker Portable Radio is a very usable and enjoyable device. Although I enjoy staying current, I am not usually an "early adopter" of new technology, but the stars were aligned for me on this one and I took the risk. I have not regretted it. The best thing about the Slacker Portable is the hassle-free way a variety of music is delivered to the player.
