Reviews around feature (5.00 of 5)

  • You will look like a moron holding the radio to the sky all day, without one.-"Radio Replays" is a nice feature but nearly impossible to dig through (have to skip one song or "commercial free" commercial at a
  • Another feature I like is if you are listening to one station you can use you dial to see the other channels and the song they are currently playing is also listed
  • However your ability to record songs from the radio and play them back is an absolutely great feature
  • All that said, the wireless feature has worked extremly well at my
  • This is a nice feature, but to use it, you'll need to find a spot with good, uninterrupted reception and leave it there.

Reviews around station (5.00 of 5)

  • It is very easy to set up recordings and I just keep several hours of all my favorite stations recorded on the device.
  • Will wait a few years to listen to all in all cool stations, when they improve their technology and will come up with more reliable new generation of portable satelitte radio players
  • I have read a number of negative reviews, and all I can say is that for my purposes this unit is perfect, far better than an I Pod and easy to use at home or in a vehicle.
  • not all the stations are available).The antenna/reception problem is an issue with Sirius, not with this unit.
  • I have recorded about 40 hours of material off of my favorite stations for times when I will either not be in the house or jeep with an antenna.

Reviews around quality (5.00 of 5)

  • It's not as small as an ipod or similar device, but it feels substantial in your hand, with good quality buttons that you can tell you've pressed
  • The sound quality is amazing, reception is great and wi-fi reception is perfect throughout the house.
  • The sound quality is great, and having 800MB of music storage is also a plus; it keeps me from having to bring my iPod on trips if I want to listen to my own music
  • Connecting your Stiletto to your car radio through an AID produces the best sound quality.
  • I bought a good quality set of head phones to use with it as I do not like ear buds.

Reviews around thing (4.49 of 5)

  • I read a lot of good things about this portable SIRIUS radio and ended up returning it.
  • (otherwise it hangs up attempting to look for a signal), and wait nearly two minutes for the thing to become responsive
  • My favorite thing about Sirius radio is *just how much* variety you have compared to FM radio.
  • Only thing I didnt like is that they claim it;s commerical free
  • this thing doesn't work.

Reviews around satellite (4.44 of 5)

  • A totally worthless satellite radio which never should have seen the light of day
  • My daughter now uses the Stiletto as a portable satellite radio.
  • I mention this so that you will understand that I am familiar with satellite radio and its occasional downsides
  • I bought this portable satellite radio to use while walking and travelling.
  • Ultimately, the Stiletto represents a good idea -- portable satellite radio -- with poor execution.1.

Reviews around programme (4.33 of 5)

  • The programming with Sirius is exceptional, but you have to be able to receive the satellite signal to hear the product.
  • I love the programming they offer and have never had a problem with reception
  • Maybe after the merger with XM who has fantastic reception but worthless programming, Sirius will really shine.
  • Maybe after the merger with XM who has fantastic reception but worthless programming, Sirius will really shine.
  • Now that Sirius and XM have announced a tentative merger (barring FCC interference, since there is a Federal law stating that Satellite providers cannot purchase each other), it will be interesting to see how their separate programming is merged as well

Reviews around way (4.26 of 5)

  • I truly love the variety and quality the service provides, but without a reliable way to receive that programming I'm nearing the end of my rope with Sirius.
  • I guess some people don't understand that these reviews are for the PRODUCT, not their inability to receive a signal at their location, not the poor shipping they experienced, not the terrible customer service they received, and not the way the FCC crippled the FM transmitters on all these newer devices
  • I love the graphics and the way the product looks but it is tough to get a satellite signal indoors and since I don't have internet at my office the Wi-Fi connection is mostly useless to me.
  • It didn't come with any good way to teather the unit to your arm or belt
  • (Due to the RIAA)- Without the home dock or car dock out, you have to find a creative way of getting a satellite signal indoors while recording 6

Reviews around receiver (4.07 of 5)

  • I had toSirius Stiletto SL10 Portable Satellite Radio Receiver
  • It's bigger than an ipod, and heavier, but that's to be expected being a portable satellite receiver, and not a pure mp3 player.
  • An excellent top of the line portable XM radio receiver.
  • There is no doubt that the Stiletto is a really cool satellite receiver
  • The receiver headphones are bulky, the earpieces are fixed position and not that comfortable.

Reviews around stiletto (3.86 of 5)

  • The Sirius Stiletto SL100 is totally useless unless you have a fast 802.11b connection from the Internet
  • After a YearI still enjoy my Stiletto and am still not happy with Sirius customer service
  • That being said, I purchased a home kit and use my Stiletto like a portable TiVo for Sirius.
  • (Again, due to RIAA)Overall:I love the Stiletto for what it is
  • But in my opinion, the Stiletto is a colossal waste of money

Reviews around unit (3.67 of 5)

  • A little large for a portable unit, and non-expandable, so a fairly limited number of songs you can download to it
  • I have read a number of negative reviews, and all I can say is that for my purposes this unit is perfect, far better than an I Pod and easy to use at home or in a vehicle.
  • If you call customer service they just tell you that your unit might be faulty
  • The earbuds are very invasive and the entire unit is fairly rigid and uncomfortable.-Cars.
  • Personally Ive never paid so much for a unit to have it fail within 1 year

Reviews around reception (3.21 of 5)

  • The other negative is the bad portable reception, unless you wear the painful headphones included with a satellite antenna on the top of the arch.
  • After reading the manual, it turns out that it gets horrible reception unless you are wearing the antenna headset that comes with it
  • The satellite signal will only be so strong and there is only so much they can do to improve reception.
  • Wi-Fi connections are marginal and satellite reception is almost impossible
  • Of course, for the best portable reception Sirius will tell you to use the included antenna headphones

Reviews around headphone (1.61 of 5)

  • Not only do these thingslook like something from a bad sci-fi movie, they are also the least comfortable headphones I have ever tried
  • The other negative is the bad portable reception, unless you wear the painful headphones included with a satellite antenna on the top of the arch.
  • The portable headphones have lousy reception, as in I'm traveling down a highway with blue skies above me and poor reception with the portable antenna because there are trees 200 feet from the road
  • Oh and the headphones ARE painful because they are solid plastic and they feel like a vice after a while
  • I can wirelessly control the docked Stiletto via remote extender from anywhere in the house, broadcasting the Stiletto to a Sennheiser wireless transmitter and listening to the output on wireless speakers or wireless Sennheiser headphones anywhere as well

Reviews around fm transmitter (1.54 of 5)

  • I guess some people don't understand that these reviews are for the PRODUCT, not their inability to receive a signal at their location, not the poor shipping they experienced, not the terrible customer service they received, and not the way the FCC crippled the FM transmitters on all these newer devices
  • The FM transmitter on the Stiletto is weak and if you're in an urban area, it gets overpowered
  • I have read a number of negative reviews, and all I can say is that for my purposes this unit is perfect, far better than an I Pod and easy to use at home or in a vehicle.
  • The FM transmitter is extremely weak and constantly loses signals or produces major static.

Reviews around howard (1.00 of 5)

  • Either Opie and Anthony and Major League Baseball with XM or Howard Stern and the NFL with Sirius are the real deal breakers
  • Recording Howard Stern is great because I am not available to listen when he's on.
  • Let me start by saying: I don't work for Howard Stern, Sirius, or XM Radio.
  • but I am a loyal Sirius customer because of Howard Stern
  • overall, since i only really bought it for howard stern, it's been a good purchase.

Reviews around performance (1.00 of 5)

  • Overall very dissappointing, performance much below expectations
  • The Stiletto has been hailed as the ultimate satellite radio gadget, but its performance is dismal
  • The main disappointment I have with the device is the poor performance of the FM transmitter in the car kit.

  • When I called to see if we could get the full amount refunded, since it was due to their very poor customer service, incompetence and deceptive practices, that we canceled, the customer service supervisor gave me attitude
  • How can Sirius have such great programming, but terrible products and customer service?Flat
