    A pretty nice gadget to have

    I was looking at both the Chumby and the Sony product and decided to go with this. It was a breeze to set up. It quickly found my home network, asked for my key, and connected with no issues. You do have to set-up an online account to use applications, but that was pretty simple. The screen seems quite large and easy to use. Images are clear in a normally lit living room. It does wash out some in direct sun light. It can be a bit unresponsive to touch at times. Plenty of applications to choose from, all for free. The built in speakers seem fairly loud and clear given their size. It works great with internet radio.

    For $129 this is really an awesome product for internet radio. Pandora rocks on it. Shows cover art and album/artist on its 8' display. The built in speaker is useless but you can use the headphone out to an amp. Really needs line out jacks. Very easy to use.

    I was looking for a digital photo fram when I stumbled upon the Infocast. I compared it with the Sony Dash and HP Dreamscreen. All of the reviews said the Infocast was easier to use and more reliable. While the clarity of the screen may be slightly lower than the Dash, the price differnce and ease of use made it worthwhile. If you get one, give it a few days to figure out the menu layout. For $79 I couldn't beat the Infocast. The Chumby apps are pretty cool to go with all of the other features. Good buy.

    This device is great, fun and fairly easy to use. For the price it blows away the Sony dash, but..... it only has one alarm. To me this seems insane the smaller cheaper version has, I think , up to seven, while this bigger better version has only one. I was in disbelief, despite being entirely happy with the device I now have to return it because my wife and I need separate alarms. It amazes me that something like this slipped past the product manager. PS read somewhere that the sound wasn't good. While it's not a stereo system to me it was great. no complaints.

    Didn't meet my needs

    I was frustrated that I wasn't able to browse the apps until AFTER I purchased the Infocast. Now I know why. I expected useful apps along the lines of what you'd find in the Android market. Most of the apps are ugly and useless. It seems the majority of the apps are for variations of the clock! You can't surf the web (for instance, looking up recipes in the kitchen), you can only stream . Also, the sound is terrible. This may be a great device for some people. The device itself is decent. It's easy to use and very responsive. My one star rating is for the worthless apps. If you're looking for a picture frame (I wasn't) this may work for you and the streaming can be a bonus. However, if you're looking for a device with deep functionality, this just isn't it. I kept it for a day hoping it'd grow on me, but I knew I was going to return it within 20mins after browsing the apps and listening to music.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
