Frustratingly close to perfect
 
Great Internet/Broadcast Tuner, and so damn close to being perfect. Pros: Good sound quality (warning: I am not an audiophile), good looks, very easy setup (plug it into power and ethernet Internet...off you go) Cons: No web interface. You'd assume you can change the station or point it to a folder on your network from the comfort of your laptop/desktop. No such luck. You have to interface with the device entirely through the big tuning knob. Turn, click, turn, click...you do a lot of that...

Close, but no cigar Sangean
 
I must concur with the consensus of reviews here: this unit's interface is clunky and its instruction manual is beyond inadequate, BUT...this product is by itself right now in occupying its niche as a component tuner, and if you can get by its shortcomings, it works.Two caveats: 1) the unit never quite powers down. The "Power" button just puts the unit in standby with the display still active. I noticed this morning after a night of this standby condition that the cabinet was warm. I...

Simply wonderful!!
 
Bought this Sangean on the advice of a friend who was happy with his own.Frankly, I could not be more enthused. It was quick and easy to set-up and within fifteen minutes I was listening to just a few of the many incredible stations that are available from all over the globe. Goodbye XM Radio!

Meets the need perfectly
 
I have a typical component stereo system and wanted Internet radio without all the hassle associated with a computer. Lucky for me Sangean came out with the WFT-1 right when I started looking for something and it was an obvious fit. Wireless setup was simple and easy and I have yet to use the hardwired connection. The RCA cable plugs right into the AUX port of my amp. The user interface clean and direct. For the most part I use the "Last Listened" to menu item to shuffle between the 10 stat...

Could be a little more user friendly
 
Specifications and chips used in the WFT-1 set my expectations for this internet radio to be best in class. It may be if you could get past the rather clunky user interface and barely adequate user manual. If you have a wired ethernet connection everything is pretty straight forward and the device can be configured without incident. Setting up wireless connection is a different story. 1.) If you use wireless security and you happen to have down rev WFT-1 firmware the radio makes a nice door s...

A Few Quirks But It Works Reliably
 
This is my first of 4 wifi radios and clearly the best; others were returned. It is a bit quirky but I find that pulling the power chord for a second to reset the unit resolves an infrequent overload of some kind. Otherwise it is by far more reliable that the others I tried (Pico, Com One) and rarely buffers or hangs up. The network is also very reliable and enables instant addition of stations by the user.

Fits my need, but not perfect
 
Like others have said, User Interface is clunky and the manual is skimpy. However if like me you're just interested in listening to a few stations (in my case, I'm in LA and I wanted to get BBC stations), it's perfect once you've setup the presets. Without reading the manual, and with a wired internet connection, I was able to get my stations within 10 minutes of opening the box. Searching for additional stations not listed in their list is not elegant through the UI, but found what I wanted (st...
