Pros: Great handheld navigation, great ease of use, good battery life
Cons: perplexing set up, spotty performance in both wireless and wired modes
Summary: as a CE professional I was really excited about using my Pandora and Slacker accounts and streaming to my home audio system. the set up was so frustrating that I had to walk away from it several times before finally linking it to my with my wireless router. Once done it would alternately bounch back and forth between good performance and bad performance. Determining that this may be the wireless router I hardwired it and thought I had licked that issue, stupid optimism on my part, it would perform on again off again, I shut down everything else on my router to see is network traffic was the issue and even dramitically increased the buffer size of the unit to 30 seconds. nothing worked that day, the next it was fine, followed by another day of frustration and no music......really disappointing but this product has a terrific future IF the engineers can conquer this spotty performance. This product has the ability to bring a huge variety of music to the masses in a very simple format if they can get past this problem.
