Cheap and as good as some more expensive ones

  • Excerpt: I bought this about a year ago from Currys. I wanted a really cheap iPod dock since my old one had just broke and I think this cost me about £30. I am yet to fault it, it has worked 100% as it should and there is nothing else that needs adding to it, it's simply a cheap iPod dock with a DAB radio and an alarm clock.
  • Pros: Reliability

A good choice if you want to use iPod and DAB, with different alarms on the weekend...

  • Excerpt: I've been using this as my main bedside clock and alarm for nearly a year now, and it has done a very good job of waking me up so far. However, the body of this clock radio is very lightweight, to the point that it feels quite flimsy in use. In particular, despite having solid rubber feet, the radio doesn't have enough weight to resist sliding when you try and press a button - unless you brace it with the other hand, or against another object, pressing any of the face...

There are better docks for the price.

  • Excerpt: The Pure Chronos iDock is a great alarm clock. With four separate alarms allowing you to wake up to iPod, radio or alarm tone with settings that allow you to select weekday, weekend, everyday and specific days as options. Programming these alarms is very simple, requiring a single button and an up and down control to programme. As a digital radio however, if you don't need the radio to wake you up in the morning you can do better.

  • Excerpt: I received this alram clock as a present and when I got it out of the box I decided to see how easy it was to set it up. Much to my delight, it did set up very easily, all I needed to do was plug it in and put the battery in the remote and it was done! As soon as I had set it up, I decided to try and get the pre - set radio stations working this is where you can make a shortcut to listening to your favourite radio stations without having to go through all the other radio...

Great quaility product

  • Excerpt: Pure are a trusted brand when it comes to the DAB radio market, they have been around quite a while and were the first company to bring out a portable DAB radio. This time around they concentrate their efforts on a DAB clock radio with an iPod dock, the big question is does it deliver? The quaility of their previous products is indeed reflected in this item.

  • Summary: Bought this product at Xmas 2007 for a little under £100 - not cheap but expected good quality as i am the proud owner of a Pure Bug. Opened the box and all ideas that it would be made as well as my Bug faded away. Cheap plastic case, the most awful and flimsy cheap piece of wire that is used for an aerial and an LCD screen that buzzes through the speakers continually. Customer services of no use whatsoever. Pure have lost a customer.
  • Pros: Fits neatly into a corner space
  • Cons: Flimsy aerial, LCD screen buzzes, disinterested customer service

  • Summary: When I first read reviews on this, I was doubtful about buying it, because there were a lot of bad comments about the sound quality and an annoying high pitched noise, etc. But I bought it anyway, because it was one of a kind- the only DAB alarm clock radio with an iPod dock, and I knew i could cope with the flaws. But when i switched it on, instead of the awful sound quality I was expecting, there was no problem with the sound at all.
  • Pros: Good sound quality, iPod dock, Alarms
  • Cons: Slightly bad signal in my area, but not too bad; low iPod volume

  • Summary: This is probably the first iPod dock I've seen that actually gives a half decent sound. It might not be extremely powerful, but what it definitely is...
