I wouldn't go so far as to say "rave reviews".  Yeah, I've read reviews
that are clearly written by someone who has an interest in the satellite
industry, but I've read others that rate it as "ho-hum" and all stages in
between.  Likewise, people I've known who've had it.  Some think it's the
greatest thing since sliced cheese, others question whether it's worth the
money.  Haven't heard Sirius, but what I've heard on XM I'd hesitate to
describe as "compelling".
