Slacker Radio

I just discovered Slacker Radio this weekend and I'm curious if anyone uses it and what you think, especially compared to Pandora or other streaming radio sites.

I case you don't know, Slacker is like Pandora in that you can tell it play an artist or song and then it will play other selections based on what you've entered. Artists and songs can be added and removed as well. It also has lots of preset stations. I like Slacker's UI better than Pandora's and I found in my little bit of listening I haven't heard any repeats. When I fire up Pandora, I get lots of stuff I've already heard. On the other hand, Pandora introduced to me to a lot of stuff I'd never heard before.
