Why all the beeatching about the S50? I've had mine for 8 months. Took the update, works great. I dont abuse it. Make sure fully shut down before removing from docks. Dont mess with PC connection except for software updates. Don't use as mp3, use to listen to and record sat radio. I think it is a great unit. In fact, I prefer it to the Stiletto I bought 2 months ago.

But these people are trying to use it as it was designed and promoted as...

I've had mine over a year, never a single problem. I've dropped it quite a few times, leave it on all night, couldn't be happier. Probably going to buy another one for the old lady, since they are coming down in price now that the stiletto is out.

I'm still on my first S50 since Dec of '05.

I record and listen portably to the ENTIRE Stern show everyday.

My S50 (my second) is turning into a real POS. It used to work fairly decently. For the most part, I was able to deal with the problems. But lately I have had many more issues.

I use a home dock at work and the car dock at home. Last week, I forgot to take it home from work and it sat in the home dock all night. I thought about going back to get it, but figured it would be fine. Wrong decision. When I got in the next morning, the S50 was off but the home dock was on. When I tried to turn on the S50, it went through a "data creation" and deleted all of my saved (favorite) HS shows and songs. GONE! I was pissed.

I am also trying to deal with not having a repeater in this area (I am in one of the areas that had the repeater turned off in mid-October). So, I have very minimal reception at work. My "work-around" was to tape at home over-night and listen during the day while at work. Well, over the last week, it has not worked more often than it has. Course, it taped the HS show on Friday morning when I really wasn't interested. Often when I wake up the S50 is off and the car dock is on. This morning, both the S50 and the car dock were off. The result is the same, no shows are taped and I have basically no reception at work. When this happened in the past, I would listen to my loved songs. But the S50 deleted those....

I guess I should read the reviews/comments on the Stilettos, but I am seriously considering an iPod.
