The Sirius Stiletto 100 Is A Cut Above The Rest, Yet

16


The Sirius Stiletto 100 has been there in the market for very long now. It had been available from early 2007. The reason we are talking about this device even now is because this product still continues to retain its popularity. In fact, this device is even considered among many to be a great substitute for the more recent iPod. For those not in the know, the Sirius Stiletto 100 was immensely special at the time of its release, for its very first Live Portable Satellite Radio.

The Stiletto 100 comes with immense features too, such as WiFi connectivity, Yahoo! Music Jukebox, music store, download, storage and playback capacity in MP3 and WMA formats, 30 channel presets, Game Alert, Game Zone, parental controls, channel lockout and whopping 100+ live reception channels, all in its little portable frame. The Sirius Stiletto 100 is very easy to use, even for the not-so-tech-savvy and includes a 2.25” display and comes with a 6-way navigation button and built-in 2GB memory, which means one can store up to 100 hours live SIRIUS Satellite Radio software programs. The packaging includes an extra battery, which you can very conveniently use if one should run out during transit.

Additionally, users of the Stiletto 100 can record up to 6 hours of their sports, music and talk shows and also set the device to automatically record commercial-free music from listeners’ favourite SIRIUS Satellite Channels. Users can even stream content if they are within a WiFi Hotspot range. The cute little device also lets users save up to 10 hours of individual tracks from live Radio broadcasts by merely pressing the “love” button. The best thing here is that one constantly gets to access the latest updated content, thanks to the Satellite Radio feature.

One can use the headphones for clarity of reception, but the antenna headphones are the best. You can charge your Sirius Stiletto 100 by means of a USB.

The Sirius Stiletto 100 is priced at around $350 and comes with a lot of accessories, such as vehicle kit for $69.95, executive system for $149.95, additional batteries and other accessories too. The Universal Connector ensures that this handy portable device can be connected with a variety of audio systems and accessories as well.

Pros and cons of the Sirius Stiletto 100

As is the case with every device in the market, the Sirius Stiletto 100 too has its strengths and shortcomings. Here is a detailed analysis of the device’s pluses and minuses.

Pros

  • The user interface is extremely easy to understand and work with. The device’s simplicity is one of its strongest points.
  • The PVR feature, that is, the recording and playback feature will surely leave you more than just contented with the device. You are bound to simply love this feature.
  • This cutie pie offers you 100+ channels of non-stop entertainment. You merely need to identify the channels that you love the most and then tune into them.
  • Content can be updated easily enough via the Internet. But streaming directly while close to WiFi Hotspots is a different kind of pleasure altogether!
  • Adding fresh content is something that iPods and MP3 players still cannot accomplish. This one scores much higher here. You are also assured of consistently updated content, so you will never get bored of the device.

Cons

  • The antenna headphones are good for the reception, but extremely uncomfortable for use. A separate antenna would be a better idea. One can also not charge the device with the antenna headphones. That is a definite disadvantage.
  • Battery life is short, though this device does come with a spare battery.
  • The price may be considered by some to be on the higher side. Of course, this one offers a whole lot of features as well.
