Thumb Down

@ Joe K

The presence of Vista might be due to MS's restrictions...

Roberts WM-201 Wi-Fi internet radio

Thumb Up

Bought one last week...

Very happy with it. I bought it to be a bedside clock radio. Don't think you can do that with an MP-101...

Negative point:

Bit clunky when navigating through all my MP3s on a Windows share.

Plus points:

External WiFi aerial

Wired Ethernet port

Stereo Speakers unlike many of the cheaper alternatives.

Runs Linux ;-)

Plus there's already a project underway to replace the firmware with an open source alternative: http://sharpfin.zevv.nl/index.php/Main_Page
