Good: Sound quality, looks, ease of use, extra features.
Bad: If you put a gun to my head, I might moan the screen could have been bigger, and the online manual a bit more comprehensive.
Comment: I managed to get this cheap at Â£100, from someone who'd won it as a prize and didn't need it.
After having used it a few hours, I'd still be as happy if I'd payed full whack.
Easy enough to set up, the only time-consuming bit was scanning my P.C hard drive.
I wll allow I had a head-scratching moment when trying to add my flatmates' library, until I realized with a Homer Simpson "D'oh!" that I was supposed to install the Logitech Server software on his laptop too. It should have been obvious to me but wasn't explicitly referred to on the online manual.
I'm reasonably tech-savvy, but I do wonder if those who aren't may struggle to set it up. Once that is done, though, it's an absolute breeze.
People who complain about the remote and rechargeable battery should remember that A: it would add to the price, and B: not everyone needs them, so it makes sense to make these seperate.
I've only a small bedroom in my lodgings at the mo, so have no need: if I move somewhere a bit more palatial, I'll probably invest.
The colour screen and apps for photos and Facebook are a nice idea, but if they stopped working tomorrow I wouldn't miss them, as my mobile phone and netbook cover that, but it does give it a splash of colour and added value.
All in all, I'm very pleased and impressed.
Good: Easy to use and very loud for such a small thing, like my dog.
Bad: Not too keen on how you can't play all songs by an artist from different albums.
Comment: When I bought this product, I was overjoyed! I loved how great the sound quality was/ is and it takes little time from unwrapping to playing music. The internet radio buffers quickly and I have not had any skipping which I would often find with my computer.
There is an auxilery slot and the product comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack and cable.
Before I bought this, my family would send music booming through the entire house from the computer and all anyone could hear was the bass, since we bought this, we were able to listen to all our tracks from the computer on the squeezebox in one room with crystal clear sound quality.
I thoroughly recommend this product to anyone. Good job Logitech!
