Pros AM recording! The timer function alone is worth the money.
Cons Although it will last a long time, rechargeable batteries are not my cup of tea.
Summary They should have come out with this thing years ago! Being an older person I don't want nor need to listen to music all day long. AM radio is my main interest, and this lx delivers!The best part is that I dont even have to be there for it to record.
I initially had a problem with reception but turns out that it was my location - I tested other small walkman radios and suffered the same problem. I've always used a high-end sony stereo to listen to radio so I've never noticed until now. PEOPLE IN BAD RECEPTION AREAS, BEWARE!
Also, I like using regular batteries that I can buy at the store rather than using a built in rechargeable. It can get tough changing that thing!
Other than reception and rechargeable battery, this device is truly remarkable. Definately a one of a kind. 9 out of 10!
Pros Lots of potential recording time. Can record up to 10 programs, great for those late night/early morning one such as Coast-to-Coast.
Cons The manual provided is a reference guide but does not give examples on how to use the product.
Summary If you find it hard to stay up late but don't want to miss one or more radio shows then Radio YouWay LX is for you. You can program up to ten timer events and, using tghe line-in jack, could record the sound from TV programs as well. Everything is stored as MP3 files. One nice feature is its ability to look like one or two hard drives when connected to a PC. For Windows 2000 or XP just connect it and the drives appear. For Win98 drivers are provided.
"Great Product"on by bond007ca
Pros Timer Radio Recordings, Portable.
Cons None that I could think of other than button size
Summary I love this product. It can do everything I want well. Record AM programs on a timer, it has a Rechargeable battery and easy user interface. I was up and running in about 10 minutes and able to do what I wanted to do with the product. Easy to use, portable and tough enough to take to the gym (unlike hard drive based players) I am so happy with the product I can’t think of any cons! My only suggestion is bigger buttons but that may mean a bigger product and I am happy with its size of a deck of cards. The design is great and pleasing to the eye too. Great product that I know will take off once the public finds out about it. I am going to stockpile this company’s stock while it is still cheap and retire a millionaire once this product becomes the next IPOD.
Pros everything else is cool
Cons a flash player at the cost/size of HD player?
Summary While AM tuning and all those "TiVo"-type features are cool, I can't get over the flash-player-sized storage. What good is it to be able to record FM and AM if you don't have any room to store it?
"PoGo's Flop"on by emondragon
Pros VCR approach to radio timeshift recording
Cons unreliable, battery life
Summary PoGo's Radio YourWay LX is what I consider a piece of junk. I have had two go bad within a year. The first had a no-hold battery problem; where the battery would only hold a few days charge while it was off. The second was a warranty replacement of the first, where after a few months, after fully recharging the battery, the unit froze while I was setting the calendar and now it will not switch on. Checking the internet for solutions has only lead me to believe this is not an isolated case but happens more than PoGo wants to admit. Stay away from this turkey, if you don't want to loose your too much money spent on this unreliable unit.
