Summary: Anyone who knows me knows I love my XM Radio. Now that XM has joined with Sirius, there is even more to enjoy. If you are in the market to buy a radio, There are some things you should know about this particular radio before you purchase it.
Summary: XM Satellite Radio is very nice with a lot of good stations to listen to. You can take this radio anywhere: you can listen to the radio in the house, outdoors or in the car. You can also save what is being played on the radio and listen to it at a later date.
Pros: Nice concept. It is easy to use.
Cons: My remote has failed. So, some of the accessories are not well made. When you broadcast to a FM radio there is always a hiss.
A so so start to portable XM hopefully will lead to future improvements.

Summary: The Delphi MyFi was my first foray into the XM Satellite world and I must say it has been full of highs and lows. I purchased my unit about 4 months ago and have been both pleased and frustrated with the experience. First off my thoughts on satellite radio in general.
Excerpt: We bought the XM2Go radio in December of 2005. During product registration I found out that there was a faulty battery that would need a replacement. I called right away and it is now April 2006 and I still haven't received the replacement battery.
Pros: Loved not having to find a new radio station every hour while we were driving.
Cons: Battery replacement process is ridiculous. It shouldn't take over 4 months to replace malfunctioning battery.
Summary: I purchased the MyFi receiver awhile ago and happily used it for about 3-4 months. I thought it would be nice to have a reciever I could use at work, at home, or even "on the go." As an XM receiver it works just fine.
Summary: We bought this item thinking that the XM2Go would give us XM Radio where ever we went. If this is what you are thinking, you'll be in for a suprise. XM2Go does not work inside buildings, unless you plug up the antenna and put it at a window that faces South.
Summary: Not such a bad idea but is not worth $350. Can purchase for already for almost $90 less than that due to more supply as well as people finding out it is not so portable. Wife bought to use at office and can not make it work and of course cannot walk around with it do to weak signal.
Pros: Display choices are better than Roady2 and others. Circular button allows you to scroll through many channels at same time.
Cons: Does not work well inside. No wonder Elton is outside in the garden. Wires tangle easilly. Cannot charge without bases. Cannot adjust volume when using exterior non amplified speakers.
Summary: Yesterday, the mailman delivered my long-awaited MyFi. I quickly got it up and running. I then took it to the gym for its first big test. Overall, I like this product. It fits in the hand nicely, the layout is very simple to use, and it certainly comes with a ton of extras.
