Do yourself a favour and buy something else. This an ugly and unreliable mostly-empty plastic box.
It's certainly easy to set up but not so easy to keep it working. It unilaterally decides to drop its connection to your wi-fi source and then despite the "retrying" message fails to do so. Sometimes a power-down-wait-30-seconds-power-up reconnects. Sometimes it doesn't, in which case let it recover for 24 hours. If only a good swear would fix it, mine would have been servicable weeks ago.
The display is buried so deep into the case that all of it may only be read from directly in front. It has just sufficent volume for use as a bedside radio and why the transformer needs to be separate when there's obviously so much empty space in the flimsy case is beyond me.
Morphy Richards may make good toasters or steam irons but internet radio is not their forte. I hope they are really embarrassed by this machine. They should be.

Disastrous. Bizarrely, this thing turns itself ON when it feels like it, which is like having a mad ghost in the house- albeit a ghost with a poor reception who only makes any sound less than half the time.

On top of that, even the buttons don't feel like buttons- basic stuff, I would have thought- and having six preset stations (spread over a grand total of three buttons, of course) is just nonsense. The sound (when it works) is like listening to Atlantic Radio on Longwave- welcome back to a muffled 1988, everyone.

Do NOT buy it- you are genuinely better off not having an internet radio at all, than having this triumph of frustration and annoyance.

I thought my luck was in - an Internet Radio with recording to SD card - so the description says. I'm afraid not - the SD slot is not even enabled for playback. The firmware update suggested in the manual does not solve this - indeed I would stick to the factory version. Apart from the disappointment of this, the radio is good - and great for listen again without using the PC. However it may be worth looking at a battery/mains model not mains only like this.

Firstly - set up - relatively quick and easy - even when dealing with a complex WPA key like mine (hence 2 stars instead of 1)!

Now, the bad bits.

According to the radio, there are over 1200 UK stations alone. It offers just SIX presets! If you want any other channels you have to scroll through the list of 1200 to select them manually.

Power - not only are there no batteries, but it does not use a standard power lead (cord) with an in-built transformer - instead it uses a large combined plug/transformer with a 9v jackplug into back of radio. There is no excuse - the case is quite large enough to hold the transformer and this makes it ungainly.

Given the power limitations, it is fair to say it is not portable - just as well, as there is no carry handle either. Given wireless does travel, it would not be unreasonable to want to move this between rooms (and remember as mains only, certain rooms are out).

Finally, the radio does drop out - however, without further investigation I would not blame the radio as opposed to my AP or more likely ISP.

Nice, though rather bulky, radio. Very easy to set up; had it running 5 minutes out of the box. BUT the volume output is pathetic. With a couple of computer speakers plugged in to the line out socket, it works much better - and in stereo. But this extra expense shouldn't have been necessary. Still good in all other respects, so 4 stars
