Top Customer Reviews
I did find a couple of quirks. First, upon the initial setup it would not connect to my WPA2 WiFi network no matter what I did. I finally read another review on this unit where the user experienced the same issue. I upgraded the firmware using a USB Memory stick and viola, problem solved -- connected to my network just fine. At home, I have a Windows Home Server with all of my music stored as MP3s. The player was immediately able to find the server and will stream content from it. You are also able to create an account on the Aluratek site which enables you to easily pick and/or add your favourite Internet radio content -- makes tuning to a station a breeze.
The other negative is the backlight. As you can see from the picture -- it's blue and VERY VERY bright. So bright in fact that it lights up our entire room. We like it dark at night, so we actually turn the light off. There is no option to dim the light, or illuminate the digits only. When the light is off, you can't see the time so if you are like me and like to roll over and check the time at night then it's blue light on.
Other than the firmware and light quirks, the unit is great. Sound is excellent for a single speaker clock radio (this is not a Bose radio, nor does it cost as much so our expectations were modest, and this unit exceeded them).
Update - May 2 2015: He's Dead Jim. Well -- good for a couple years and without explanation, the radio died. First, the LCD display no longer displayed any digits. A week later, the unit will no longer power up or turn on. Too bad.
An interesting feature of the unit is its ability to function as a WAP (Wireless Access Point). This means that when I am far from home I can connect to the internet and use the unit to allow my laptop to connect wirelessly as well use the radio to listen to my home area stations.
The Aluratek support people seem to be quite efficient and having access to the vTuner system is a big plus. Not all internet radios use that system.
All in all I like the radio very much. I will try to write again when I have the unit for a year or so.
I love the "save as favorite" feature, which makes getting to your favorite stations even more simple.
GREAT product. If you're looking for a small internet radio, I highly recommend this one!
I updated to the latest firmware from the aluratek website and everything worked great except for playing files from a media server. I use ps3mediaserver and it works great with the ps3 as well as other devices.
But when the radio connected to it, it would lock up on certain files for no reason. I contacted aluratek on a friday, and on monday they sent me a newer firmware that resolved the problem.
So now this little radio works great. It plays all my music being served up via ps3mediaserver. Plus it works fine with usb drives and the internet radio works great too.
A great little device for a good price. Just make sure you update the firmware.
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.
