Ease Of Use
1st Internet Radio
November 25, 2010
Ease Of Use
I'm not sophisticated user, but it worked fine out of the box. Once you learn the logic tree and how it works fine. Once I got into using it regularly, I found features that i would have liked. AM tuner for sure. More station STORAGE space. Some way to access my Reciva 'favorites' folders. I'm still a bit confused on the use of "My Stuff". I may have a way to go on learning how to use all the features it has NOW. But for a 1st internet radio it has all the features I need on a daily basis. It's possible that future features are possible with software upgrades, I hope.
I was clearly impressed with the $$ value.

Ease Of Use
I was clearly impressed. It set up quickly and once I learned the logic tree and used it a bit, it's was a most worthwhile investment. I connect a portable AM tuner to it to get AM stations but other then the rigors of downloading from a network PC for tunes, etc. it works quite well. The sound is quite good and much better than the bed stand am/fm GE that it replaced. AM would have been a welcomed feature as well as MORE memory storage capacity. It's satisfied all of my expectations for a bedside iRadio. Now I['m looking for an am/fm tuner for my larger stereo set

Ease Of Use
I love this radio. I can take it anywhere in the house and enjoy my music without having to reprogram it. Storage is not a problem if you use the Reciva device website and add "My Stations". A few problems...the blue screen is hard to see and the screen itself is a bit small and can't be viewed from very far away. Other than that it sounds great and I love all the stations I can receive. I like not having to store CDs or record anything...at Christmas I just tuned in a station and had non-stop music for the holidays! Easy setup and consistent sound and quality. Definitely a good buy!
