Good points:
For such a small 'box', the sound is good, and when plugged into a hifi set the sound is excellent, so obviously the digital analogue conversion is good. It does what it says, ie DAB, FM, Internet radio, and streaming off the PC - all working well. (DAB+ not tested yet! And DAB is better than the first DAB radio we had.) Built in rechargeable battery is good, and runs quite a few hours. Being able to find, select and sort internet radio stations on the pico website is good. And the internet radio is good and listenable to even though we are on a rural broadband connection.
Bad points:
The manual is not very well written. It tends to say where to find menus rather than running through the actual menu selections you make at each point so it took quite a while to set everything up and get all the functions working.
The most irritating problem to me concerns the wireless security. It took a long time to sort out, and although the manual says it remembers your code it does not, and I have to reenter my WEP code everytime I select Internet radio.

Good points:
Innovation - FM, DAB, DAB+, uPnP, Internet Radio and external audio input (e.g. from MP3 player) all in one box is incredible.
Standards - works great with opensource MediaTomb uPnP player and Windows Media Player 11
Internal rechargeables and splashproof design - works in the kitchen and bathroom without having to put it in a bag !
Bad points:
Searching and menu selection is a bit fiddly, but I can't imagine how to improve the user interface while keeping the same small form factor.
Sound is OK, not Hi-Fi but fine for listening to casually.

Good points:
A hell of a lot of excellent functionality, very well done, all in a small neat package.
Bad points:
For a radio/media player device this has EVERYTHING, except the SD memory card slot for recording/playing media that some of the other Revo PICO products do...

Good points:
The reception is fantastic. Easy set up to internet etc.. ecven for a technophobe like me. Very portable.
Bad points:
The dial isn't always easy to manage - it's either too sensitive or not too sensitive enough. Can't work it out but as a result it tends to rush past stations so have to come back on yourself.
