5.0 out of 5 stars Best Internet Radio Available, 28 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Logitech UE Smart Radio - Black (Electronics)
This is my second internet radio, the first being the much flasher Pure Sensia 200D - that's the egg shaped one at more than twice the price. UInfortunately that one simply won't work as it won't stay connected to the wifi; a common problem it seems. Anyway because I still wanted an internet radio I searched and found out a couple of things. Firstly, it's a really small pool of options and secondly Logitech seem to be the only manufacturer who is generally well regarded and has an integrated approach.

So here I am in possession of a shiny new internet radio at a very reasonable price. Check around for that by the way. I bought mine on Amazon and it's gone up in price since then, and currently cheaper on the Logitech website.

Setup is easy. Simply plug it in and power up. It will ask for the network key and then log on and in my case download an update immediately. After that you can surf internet radio via Tune In.

You can save favourites, get information and search by location. Very neat, very simple and very easy. Sound is good albeit in mono. I also like the fact that you can use a Cat5 cable to connect if you don't have good wifi or prefer it.

Of course as in life there are ups and downs. There is no remote control which I guess helps the price stay reasonable. On the plus side you can download a free app to your Android or iPhone device. Since another review has written, the app is available on a tablet and I have mine on a Kindle Fire HD.

The only other issue I noted was that I couldn't get the time to display when the radio was switched off. This defeated some of the reason for this item as it is in my bedroom and was to double up as a clock and alarm. However I noted on the website that this was an issue on some radios on first startup and resetting to factory via the menu cured it. This I did and it has worked correctly since.

Actually there is one other small irritation. A lack of a decent manual. The one that comes with the radio is a simple start up one and has nothing in it that tells you about settings etc. I figured that like many manufacturers today it would be available on line. But it isn't. On the Logitech website you only have the basic manual leaving you to work out yourself how to set up alarms, stations and clock. It's easy enough and intuitive, however I would have thought it not beyond reasonable to have a full instruction set available on line.
