Loads of buttons,
This review is from: Revo - Blik WiFi - Contemporary WiFi Internet Radio - Black (Electronics)
Having bought the Revo Pico WiFi and discovered the advantages of WiFi radio I was keen to correct the biggest weakness with the Pico i.e. no time functions.
The reviews of ALL the various WiFi alarm clocks were consistently bad. So after picking through them I decided to stick with the Revo brand.
The problem is the quantity of buttons aggrevated by a lack of differentiation. Surely an alarm clock should have prominent tactile buttons for sleep and alarm functions. The WiFi options can be lost elsewhere.
So my main complaint is the lack of ergonomic design for something to be used when one is unlikely to be most alert or have the best lighting.
Much of the tedium on the wifi side can be overcome by registering for free with Reciva and relying upon the "my stuff" option.
The bottom line is that life is simpler with the Blik WiFi since I no longer have to update podcasts on my ipod before listening to them on my ipod clock. Also unlike the Pico I can fall asleep while listening to them.
Oh, and battery back-up and self setting time would seem to me as rather obvious essentials for a product of this sophistication & price.
