Really love this radio except the operational angle of the remote is ridiculously small and low. You almost look like a Sumo Wrestler getting ready for combat when trying to change a counter top height radio.

Great for both of us being able to hear the tunes and news from our place of birth while living thousands of miles away. I think we both know what's new in the NEWS than the people living their. Joking of course, maybe!

It was easy to set-up but couldn't handle the streaming - long pauses made the experience totally unenjoyable
Not sure if it was a memory problem.
I consequently bought a Logitech Squeezebox and it's been a night vs day experience - 10,000% better.
Wished I known beforehand, I'd have saved myself some money!!

I needed a new clock radio and decided to get an internet radio because I was tired of the fuzzy reception of a normal radio. There are surprisingly few internet clock radios to choose from but I chose this one. The sound quality is good - as to be expected with an internet radio. My complaints about the unit were:
1. The interface is very cumbersome. There was no button to just turn on the radio if I wanted to listen. It was a minimum of 5 buttons on the remote to turn on the radio and that's with my station remembers as one of the preset 'favourites'. Most tools are only possible with the remote, a design feature I disagree with.
2. As pointed out by another reviewer, the blue display screen is way too bright. I couldn't sleep with it on. I eventually left my Kindle blocking the display.
3. I initially had it connected to the internet using the wifi but after 2 days it lost it's wifi connection and therefore no sound was produced when the alarm went off so we slept in and were an hour late for work. I could not get back the wifi connection without rebooting the whole unit which then required me to reprogram all my alarm settings and radio station presets. After that we connected it to the internet with a wire; fortunately my nightstand was near an internet connection (I doubt most people's are).
4. Even with it connected to the internet with a wire, it would get confused about once a week and freeze up and then produce no sound when I needed to wake up. Being an hour late for work once a week is seriously NOT AN OPTION. We started using a second alarm clock as a backup - somewhat defeating the purpose of owning the unit in the first place.
Today I boxed it up and it's going back to Amazon. I went to a local shop and paid twice as much for the only internet radio alarm clock they carry which was a Logitech Squeezebox.

The concept is really good, but this implementation is perhaps a 0.9 release. As an alarm clock it is very unreliable, once a week it will fail to wake us up.

Setting the time automatically from the internet (NTP) is a great thing! It means I never have to change the clock twice a year.
If you unplug the unit or turn it off, it loses its WiFi settings (but not the station presets luckily). Which means after a power failure it won't wake you up. We plugged it into a wired ethernet port (luckily there was one beside the bed) to eliminate that problem. Still it would lose the internet connection randomly. Turning it off and on again seemed to fix it. But now it's complely locking up requiring us to unplug it and plug it back in to get it functioning again. That's the last straw, we're returning it and looking for another manufacturer.

The unit didn't even last a year and when I contacted Aluratek they told me, it isn't supported anymore. No solutions, no help, no thanks. Thumbs down to Aluratek.
