"Product simply does not work"1.5 starson by ecbrugby
Pros: Great design with click wheel, antenna works well outdoors
Cons: Device freezes up and reboots it'self, WIFI just does not work to an acceptable level, antenna does not work at all indoors
Summary: Three main flaws:
1) I've had ther Stiletto for 4 days and it's frozen up 4 -5 times (had to remove battery to reboot) and has rebooted it'self several times
2) Antenna is useless indoors. This was not a huge concern as I planned to use the Stiletto via WIFI in my house. However, this made the device useless in my gym.
3) WIFI just does not work to a useable level. I had no problems connecting to my network, but when I pulled up a channel, I recieved no content and after a fwe minutes the screen said that the channel was no available. When I actualy got content streaming ( from the same channel that was originaly unavailable ) there were problems buffering the content so it wouod cut out every few minutes for a long period of time. Sometimes the content would just stop and the device would lose network connectivity. I would like to blame my network, but I had no problem streaming Sirius conent via my desktop computer (which is connected to my network via WIFI) If I had to guess, I think the WIFI radio in the Stiletto is in it's early stages and needs to be upgraded to be usefull.
I own the S50, which was a poor product upon release. I have no doubt that the Stiletto will, at one point, become a useable product. However, I would not recomend getting it until they work out the bugs. I actualy very strongly recomend against purchasing it because this version is something that should not be sold....it's the worst product I have ever purchased. I am returning mine this weekUpdated
I saw many positive reviews from users on the Circut City site...all of whom had no problems with WIFI
After checking the Sirius Stiletto forum on the Sirius I saw postings from several people who all had the same problem as I do. In all cases, their problem was resolved by simply exchanging their Stiletto. So, I'll exchange my Stiletto (or return and purchase again when Circut City has them in stock) and update post with the results from another unit.
