Pros Access to 11,000+ stations, dual alarms, ability to access music files via USB or home network, ability to add new stations (not sure what previous reviewers are talking about here...), useful remote control, size, ease of use, time and date display
Cons Very bright backlight, speaker quality (you CAN connect external PC speakers), cannot connect to all stations on vtuner for some reason
Summary I read countless reviews of internet radio products before deciding to go with the Aluratek. And I am quite pleased I did. Many of the comments about this radio are valid, but put simply, if you are lookng for a clock radio or an entry radio to the Internet Radio space, this is a great way to go. The speaker is weak, no question - BUT...if you are looking for a clock radio, or something to have out in the garage or rec room, you probably aren't looking for room filling sound. The speaker can be bypassed by adding a set of computer speakers, for instance. I am sure many considering this product have at least one set of these sitting around!
Pros This device is so easy to use and is really fun! The sound quality is really good and there are two alarm modes to wake up to. A must have for music lovers but also offers a wealth of sports talk and news radio.
Cons Nothing as of yet.
Summary I love this device! I instantly connected to my wireless connection at home and was listening to thousands of radio stations. No more trying to tune in an AM/FM signal which is great because I only could receive a few stations that were decent where I live (OHIO). This device levels the playing field regardless of where you live! Easy Easy Easy to use.
Pros This worked right out of the box and I didn't have to read the manual. It picked up my wireless connection and I entered the WPA password with the remote and I was able to get instant access to thousands of stations all over the world.
Cons The sound quality could be a little better but it's still really good for such a small radio. It also has an audio port so you can hook it up to your home theatre speakers.
Summary I keep mine in the great room area to entertain guests or play while I'm cooking. It's so amazing that this type of technology exists. I don't even listen to am/fm radio stations anymore. It's really fun to listen to so many genres from different countries it never gets boring. Most importantly, there's no subscription fees. I also have music streamed from my networked computer as well as play mp3's from my flash drive. This radio is versatile and the quality is exceptional. I definitely recommend.
Pros Gets thousands of stations. I have a dozen "old time radio stations" and about 10 music stations as "favorites." I hooked the radio up to a pair of Creative Gigaworks T20 speakers and the sound is AWESOME.
Cons Display is way too bright, so I have it set to turn off after one minute.
Summary This radio has worked flawlessly for over two years. I have it connected directly to the Internet as I do not use Wi-Fi.
Pros Easy setup, online radio stations added automatically(great feature)
Cons None, just can't think of any.
Summary What more could you ask for in an internet radio. I live in Cape Breton in Canada and this was the radio I was looking for. I live rather remote location and radio stations that are here don't come in half the time. I love this radio.
