Reviews around music (5.00 of 5)

  • Having a buffer full of good music for listening while in a doctors office where I can't get a satellite signal
  • I bought one because I have satellite radio in my car and wanted to be able to conveniently listen to commercial-free music at work
  • If you want the capability of an ipod or zune with 100% commercial free music, this is for you.
  • Their programmers or disc jockeys or whatever they were called loved their music and it showed
  • I want a variety of good music without annoying ads, and with the least amount of effort on my part

Reviews around player (5.00 of 5)

  • Im totally satisfied with Pioneer's XMP3 portable player
  • The firmware interface is unrefined compared to the most inexpensive mp3 player.
  • On paper this looks like a fantastic player, and in many ways it comes through
  • So it has gone from a portable player to a desktop player
  • all the way up!It's a great player because you can have XM be the DJ or your XM mix or your SD card

Reviews around life (5.00 of 5)

  • Only been a few weeks running but has great battery life and easy to use software.
  • This XM radio/mp3 player is full of great features and capabilities - sound was good, size made it very portsble, good battery life
  • It is very small and light, acquires an excellent signal, has reasonable battery life (I have been getting the advertised 4-5 hours per charge), and many interesting features (which I haven't fully exploited as yet).
  • Personally, I would just like a standard portable XM radio with good battery life.
  • As my other portable devices have become more reliable and with a longer usable life, satellite radio continues to go the other direction

Reviews around xmp3 (4.40 of 5)

  • , I will always have at least one subscription as when traveling nothing can compare to the coast to coast coverage of satellite radio!!I'd still highly recommend the XMP3 if you're looking for an overall good experience with satellite radio
  • Still love the XMP3 - just as long as this new one behaves OK - which it seemed to out of the box, but time will tell
  • The XMp3 is very user friendly and build quality is top notch
  • Now everytime you plug in your device, it will download any new songs in your playlist to your device, and update the playlist itself on your XMP3 (works great)I think I might actually prefer just dealing with one program (Media Player).
  • I hate my XMP3.

Reviews around feature (4.26 of 5)

  • These are both nice features ... too bad they don't 'talk to' each other
  • and so I am lead to believe this person has some ax to grind because no one is that stupid to miss the feature
  • These are both nice features ... too bad they don't 'talk to' each other
  • We've had XM since '03 and to me this radio FINALLY has many of the best features in one unit
  • The features and size of this unit had me really excited.

Reviews around sound (4.21 of 5)

  • However, all the features in the world do no good if the sound is so bad that you'll never use it.
  • The Ipod sounded a little harsh and bright compared to the GEX-mp3 having a nice smooth sound
  • I couldn't belive how crisp/clear the sound was and the bass was outstanding
  • Although I'm not a serious audiophile, I find the earbuds give very good sound
  • Now one device combines live and recorded playback with excellent sound in both cases

Reviews around channel (4.16 of 5)

  • Now there is one bank of up to 99 favorite channels which you have to scroll through to find the one you want
  • No longer can you program 3 different banks of 10 favorite channels, each with it`s own button to push
  • I'm in, what my favorite channels are and then redo all my scheduled recordings.
  • XM channels are now polluted with insipid talking
  • You can add favorite channels, but accessing them is not nearly as easy as with the Inno

Reviews around way (4.10 of 5)

  • I learned this the hard way
  • But the best way to do this is by organizing what you want to upload to the device into a single folder before you upload it
  • I didn't like the hang-off from the A/C duct at all since I live in the South and need the air flow on hot days; the way the hanger is set up the unit blocks the vent you use to hang it.
  • Everything works as it should and no change with the features or operation of the basic radio over the last hundreds (thousands?) of hours it has been on
  • if you have an inno, i highly reccomend trying to get one for your radio.overall i am pleased with the pioneer xmp3, but a better way for pioneer to have gone with it would have been to simply keep the original INNO design, and revamp it so that it incorporated the external memory slot and the extra built in storage time.

Reviews around device (3.57 of 5)

  • Removing the battery lets the player work, and, of course, if you want to use the system as a portable device, you will want to get a new battery.
  • Device would freeze ,after a using it for a 2 week sent back for refund.
  • That's 0-4 on expensive devices that I don't feel I should have to replace annually.
  • When used as a portable device, the reception is also very good.
  • The device is about as good as the cheaper knock-off I-pods of the late 1990’s.

Reviews around reception (3.32 of 5)

  • Portability is great, reception in a variety of situations is good.
  • If your reception becomes sporadic for some reason, when it returns in full force, the unit usually resets itself to Channel 1 (which is kind of like an audio 'TV Guide' for the radio) instead of the channel you were listening to before the reception went bad
  • The reception is not bad without an external antenna but with the home kit there is no problem.
  • This product needs much improvement on the poor reception.
  • Outside reception is good only if the device is pointing south towards the satellite

Reviews around selection (3.22 of 5)

  • Being a music lover, i Have fallen in love with this product far better selections than I anticipated.
  • I loved the selection and lack of commercials for many stations
  • I like the programming - good selection of music, and every few songs the DJ comes in but only for about 15s, so it's not too distracting

Reviews around product (2.90 of 5)

  • Their returns process is convoluted and inconvenient; they clearly do not want customers to hold them accountable for defective products, nor do they want to replace said defective products.
  • Don't spend your hard-earned money on a defective product made by a company who clearly does not care about its customers.
  • Overall good product, its what pioneer has always stood for quality at a good price
  • This is a completely worthless product and I will be returning it promptly
  • Fo 10 months this product was fine and then it froze up and will not work.

Reviews around unit (2.77 of 5)

  • I have four XM radios in use and decided to replace a MyFi portable unit with the XMP3 when the charging port became a little finicky.
  • That is why we have rated the Pioneer brand awesome because the Pioneer brand is a great unit
  • My unit appeared to flake out and the screen would periodically flash a blank screen for a millisecond.
  • So, I basically purchased an expensive home unit at that point
  • I'm rating this 3 stars, just because, in reality, if I ever get one that lasts, it is a great portable unit with recording capabilities.

Reviews around fade (2.75 of 5)

  • You can add favorite channels, but accessing them is not nearly as easy as with the Inno
  • A few gripes about this unit as some others have mentioned is that although it allows you to record individual songs or programs, it has an annoying fade in/out 'feature' that you can't turn off.
  • The price is high but then it works as it is supposed to.
  • It is very small and light, acquires an excellent signal, has reasonable battery life (I have been getting the advertised 4-5 hours per charge), and many interesting features (which I haven't fully exploited as yet).
  • The navigation could be improved as it takes several clicks of different buttons to get to the

Reviews around pioneer (2.05 of 5)

  • Recently received a Pioneer XMP3 portable radio as a gift.
  • I have an original Pioneer Inno that I love, but it is over 5 years old
  • Pioneer, to their credit, honored their 12 month warranty.
  • I don't know if I am just lucky or if Pioneer has worked out the bugs, but knock on wood, I haven't had any problems at all.
  • perhaps pioneer would accomplish this with the next generation of XM receivers?

  • I have to write that it became almost difficult to buy one because I read all manner of both rave and poor reviews

Reviews around bite (1.00 of 5)

  • I was a bit nervous regarding the reception having read other reviews of this product.
  • Its a bit hard and dangerous to flip stations when driving in traffic!
  • It probably just seems a bit worse through headphones where everything is amplified
  • On the down side, I find the interface a bit tricky to use
  • One small issue I have is I live in the country and going for walks and receiving the XM signal is a bit tricky

  • In the end I took a leap of faith and bought one despite identifying with some poor reviewers
  • This rotten reviewer could have spent a few seconds with the device without even reading the manual and found the settings
