    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.

    Missing an important feature

    As a previous Chumby User, I was familiar with this gadget. Bigger screen, better sound. In all it's a great product, but one previous important feature is missing in edition. With the Chumby classic you can set the alarm clock to wake you up with music, may that be from a sd card, USB, fm radio, Internet radio, news, pandora, shoutcast etc etc. With this version firmware the only option is 5 different sounds, like beeps, rooster, gong etc. If this feature was included in the next update firmware this product would be a 5 star in it's category.

    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.

    It's got a spot on my nightstand

    I use this as a digital picture frame, alarm clock, and internet radio. It's easy to stream photos from PhotoBucket, and, after a bit of effort, I've got it showing pictures from my Windows Home Server. The alarm clock is fine, I like that I can set an alarm for weekdays only, but it would be nice to have the option to wake to music. Pandora internet radio works great, but sounds a bit garbled, not sure if it's the service or the speakers. I wish there was an option to stream music from a home server. I had been interested in getting a chumby device for a long time, but it seemed too small. I went to Best Buy to look at the Sony Dash, which was very slick but seemed more limited than a standard chumby. Then I spotted the Infocast, and liked the looks of the bigger screen. The touch screen requires a firm press with a fingernail, not as slick as the iPhone's touch screen. If you're thinking of buying this for a non-tech-savvy relative--don't unless you can set it up for them. It's difficult to set up, requiring a computer and typing in a long activation code. I also had to shorten my wireless password because it wouldn't recognize one that was 64 characters long. I don't think it's too expensive, compared to the price of an internet-connected photo frame, along with its alarm and music features. I also set up a "morning" channel with my google calendar, yahoo weather, and a map of recent earthquakes around the world. It's not perfect, but I like it.
