I was given this radio as a present and it has always been temperamental. It would work OK for a while and then drop the connection. Then it started dropping it every time you go to us it. Now it can't find any connection even though the aerial is right in front of it and my phone is connected all the time. (read more)

For 40 quid this was an amazing buy , since I changed my wifi router from a Belkin to Zyxel it all works perfectly . Wife listens to the Archers Omnibus every day on BBC listen again . Yes it would be better with an ethernet socket so I could use a Homeplug but I have no regrets (read more)

The Logik IR100 Internet Radio is no longer available anyway BUT
after one year of perfect working it just stopped connecting with one error message - apparently there is a dongle inside which may need to be taken out of the USB slot and then put in again. This fix didn't work in my case so
a duff purchase over the mid term. (read more)

I quite like it. Got over the irritations: stand-by hum, slow connection and set-up processes, plain appearance, hard-to-see tuning window and alleged crumby internal construction.
It is fantastic to have a few favourite overseas stations at hand 'loud and clear' at the flick of a switch with no noise or fading and I have become very fond of it and would buy another Logik IR100 Internet Radio if it broke. (read more)

Complete waste of money. Has such limited range from the router. I have a G plus MIMO router which runs the laptops all round the house but the Logik IR100 internet radio has to be within a few feet to work properly without constant buffering. Wish I had never bought it. (read more)

I've had my Logik IR100 Internet Radio for 18 months, and it's given me countless hours of pleasure. Yes, it hums when on standby, but it's extremely easy to set up and use, and is fully compatible with the Reciva website, which means that you can store a number of favourite stations (much more than 5, might even be unlimited) for easy access.

I bought this Logik IR100 Internet Radio, upgrading from 6 DAB radios (I like a choice of stations!) and have not regretted it.
Being a huge Blues fan I am able to surf the net and choose any blues channel I fancy.

I have owned this radio for about 3 months and owning 6 DAB radios was able to make a true comparison. - No contest!!! I'm an avid blues fan and the Logic IR100 gives me a very wide choice of stations to suit my mood. I'm selling my DAB radios and will be buying a second Logic R100 if I can find one - I've been searching and can't find one!!!
It's a great buy and I don't have the hum or clicks other reviewers describe - perhaps positioning is crucial?

Received my Logik R100 just over a week ago and was surprised how easy it detected my WiFi. It was soon up and running with thousands of channels to choose. BUT, I use it as a radio alarm and I noticed straight away some hum when on standby - also even more hum when in normal use. The first problem wouldn't be so bad maybe if it wasn't right next to me on my bedside cabinet. So - I took it apart and had a look inside. The transformer is mounted right behind the loudspeaker so is magnetically... (read more)

You have to put this in context - the Logik IR100 Internet Radio is a product that lets you listen in good quality and pretty reliably to around 5000 radio stations worldwide and it costs around £40 that sounds a pretty good deal and it is. i have had mine for around 18 months and its been great. There were apparently issues with a distracting 'hum' on these units and indeed when the set is on standby alongside the bed you can just about hear it (strangely it only appeared when we moved...

If you take the time to find the workaround for the antenna problem which really just involves buying a short USB cable, removing the antenna which is simply a dongle, plugging in the USB cable, relocating the antenna to the end of this and fixing the antenna to the outside rear of the casing then you will have 100% better reception. Doing all this and covering the antenna with a piece of plastic to protect it took 30 minutes tops and I am NOT particularly technical. (read more)

It only worked one evening out of three and it is going back to Currys. "Connecting... connecting.... connecting...."

The design anyway should have included a chip which memorises the WEP and other settings when mains supply is switched off .Even when it could stay on the router it had to be reset everytime it was moved around the flat .Poor quality electronic design and user interface. Why do these radios also have to be so big and clumsy why not battery powered like small DAB portables? (read more)

I've been wanting a Logik IR100 Internet Radio for ages and when I saw one for £39.99 I couldn't resist it. The price has certainly dropped recently, perhaps there's a new model coming along?
From getting the device out the box to listening to music was literally 5 minutes but then I know what I'm doing with wireless kit. Should be easy enough for just about anyone to set up, and if you get stuck there's loads of help on the internet.
Only trouble I've had with it so far is the main input... (read more)

Over all great piece of kit - prices are coming down, in some ways better than having a DAB. Great sound, nice big switches, a real fun piece of kit, clear sound - a bit fiddly to set up if you aren't sure what you are doing - and of course if the streaming goes down!
There is a very slight mains hum but nothing to audible (read more)

I love this device. Took a bit of a punt but do not regret it. A bit of a fiddle to set up but mainly trial and error, and definitely worth the effort.
I have a reasonably large music collection and the upnp server method is by far the easiest way to stream music - just edit the settings in media player 11 on the pc, adjust the firewall settings and off you go!

Once I had the information (put the Livebox into discovery mode by pressing button marked 1 on side of box) then it burst into life.

It seems the price that you can buy this radio at varies considerably - shop around - I have read that some have paid as little as £40! (read more)

I could not believe just how easy it was to get this thing working - I'd been prepared for a few hours of fiddling with settings, but 20 mins after plugging it in for the first time, everything was up and running. The range of stations available "out of the box" is pretty impressive, too.
On the downside, I was rather disappointed that it doesn't pick up the wifi signal unless very close to the router - it struggles in places where the laptop has no problems at all. (read more)

This is a real break through with internet radio technology, especially when you do not need to turn on your computer to operate this radio. It would be better if it had connection sockets to a hifi, although the mini stereo jack can do this job very well if required?.
