DEVICE WILL NOT SYNC
J. Kuller, Amazon

Summary: This device will not sync via usb or wifi. I think the whole Slacker system is obsolete. Complete waste of time and money. My husband is a computer programmer and we have spent hours trying to get this to work and it just doesn't. Don't bother!
Summary: The battery is not working on the slacker I just purchased two months ago from Amazon. Contacted Slacker support and this is their answer: Response (Charles B.) 01/26/2011 10:07 AM This player is not under warranty at this time as it was bought from a third party vendor that we did not support for...
Summary: I absolutely love the Slacker radio concept and streaming music. I have been using the G1 portable for a year and suffered through all the firmware issues and technical bugs. When it works - it is GREAT! When it fails to start up, or sync I want to scream!
Summary: Mine works exactly as advertised. I don't use for my own mp3s, just for Slacker stations. Custom stations are great, and I have added and deleted stations many times. Update works OK, wifi connection to open network and using WPA at home works like a champ. Well worth the price I paid.
Summary: Love Slacker radio, but this device is cursed, it worked for 8 weeks then stopped, sometimes it turns on, sometimes it won't. Sometimes it syncs, sometimes it won't. Very frustrating. I do not recommend this product.
Summary: I'm a long-time Slacker listener at work and find the service better than even my own music collection so I was looking forward to playing Slacker streams through my home stereo. Unfortunately, this product was a complete disappointment.
Summary: Those that love music, especially commercial free and played FM style, with unpredictable lists, then this is for you. My unit, the G1, was certainly a surprise, with Artists Bio, Album Bio, ect...
Summary: I waited until I owned this product for more than a month before writing the review- I was floored the first few days so I wanted to wait until I became an regular user of the product to allow for potential problems/bugs etc.
Summary: I remember reading about this when it was first coming out and thought it was cool but didn't bite because it was a little pricey. Now that they have a G2 out the first gen player is cheap I got my 8gb for well under a $100 brand new.
Summary: This thing rocks! It's like a portable version of Pandora. Like a customizable XM or Serius receiver. When they blocked Pandora at work I started looking for an alternative. Check out the web version at WWW.Slacker.com.
