I bought this as a present for my wife to use in the and around the home and it performs stunningly well. The initial setting up was a bit fiddly, but then I find many of todays digital devices fiddly to get going.
The range and variety of stations is amazing - there are literally thousands in addition to all the BBC faithfuls. [ On setting the radio into operation you will be confronted with the option to download an update to the inbuilt software - just go for the "Yes/OK" option as it only takes moments and brings all the radio station data right up to date].
No matter where we take the radio throught the house (it must be plugged into a 230V AC socket to work) reception is excellent. I'm using a "BT Voyager 2110" wireless router and the Internet radio receives solid signals everywhere throughout the house and even in those areas where my WiFi Laptop just won't work - so I'd say that the radio is very sensitive.
Sound quality isn't Hi-Fi, but then the radio isn't intended to be a Hi-Fi receiver. The sound quality, and available volume, is more than acceptable for general listening around the house and, in many instances, is surprisingly pleasant.
Do note that if the radio is switched 'on' and left running throughout the day, unless you have 'unlimited' broadband you will suddenly discover that your download allowance has been gobbled up.
[This applies to any Internet Radio, not just this specific model]
Several reviewers have muttered about poor build quality and lack of weight - well I don't share those views. There are so called "better" internet radios available but at double, treble or quadruple the price and I've not seen or heard any that perform or work any better than this Freecom MusicPal WLAN Internet Radio.
Do I recommend it ? Yes, I do, and several family friends have bought them and are equally as well pleased. It's darned good value for money.
