I been thinking about it and tonight I went to my local Best Buy and saw the Stiletto 100 and decided to buy it, along with the vehicle kit. I have been playing with the S100 for couple of hours and so far I really like it! This weekend I will install the vehicle kit in my car and take some pics.

Congratulations! You were lucky to find one, especially with the car kit too. The Best Buy here in Columbia, MD is just now getting the Stiletto and home kits in stock with regularity (at least acc. to the website). The car kits are harder to come by.

I haven't been around the Arundel Mills Mall's Best Buy but the last time I was there they were getting the Stilettos in a "few days".

I just checked the Best Buy website (11:00 Friday 10 Nov) and it showed the Stiletto as being in stock at the Arundel Mills store as well as all the local Columbia store and Security Blvd. store. It's the first time I've seen it in stock at all the regional stores. This is good - let's get these things in peoples' hands and get those subscriber numbers up!

Be sure to get the home dock too unless you are lucky enough to be next to a repeater tower. I got mine yesterday and I don't know how I lived without it.

Yes Welcome to the club. The stiletto is almost perfect. I was out of town this week and was finished with appointments so I went to a coffee shop with wi-fi, sat down and checked email while listening to STern. Then I left, went back to the hotel but couldn't get on their wireless (had to accept the hotels terms and conditions to activate) but no problem, I sat in the lobby doing work on the computer while listening to recorded Riley Martin. Then got back int he car and listened over Sat. If you are motivated enough, you could seriously use the STiletto 24 hours a day.

How much better is the Stilletto? I may have to send back my S50, should I get another S50 or go for the Stilletto? I have no use for the wireless connection at this time . I would like the extra storage space.

From one who had no problems with his S50 and being very pro S50, to now having a Stiletto.... I agree the Stiletto wins hands down! I have never enjoyed a tuner as much as I do my Stiletto. I sold everything I owned that was for the S50, the only reminder I have is the little cloth sack. I now have a Stiletto with Soloist, home dock and 2 car docks! I will be getting the boombox when that is available! Then I'll be totally set. I can use this baby ALMOST anywhere!

I have and still own a S50 (#4) and my last one has been great. Bought a Stiletto last week to try out. I'm keeping it. Have a home dock and car dock on order. I'm sitting in my hotel room running it through my portable JBL On Tour speakers enjoying a little Octane right now. "...that's good livin'"

i would like to get the stilletto but the only thing stopping me is the bad fm transmitter. if i get it, i want to use it like i did my s50, from my car, to wifes car to work car. if the transmitter is bad then i wont be able to install fm mods in all the cars, especially my work car. how much worse if the fm transmitter on the stilletto compared to the s50?

I can't speak for the S50 but it's MUCH better than my crippled Sportster Replay. That sucker couldn't even make it across my desk. My Stiletto covers the entire house.
