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...
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.
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.
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!
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?
Excerpt: I treated myself to one of these at Christmas, and four months in i'm still happy with it. I accept that it might not suit everyone but for what I wanted it for it's just perfect. The Pure Chronos iDock in white cost me £78 in December.
Pros: Compact size . Great Value for money you get iPod dock AND DAB radio . Excellent customer service
Cons: Sound quality good but not suitable for audiophiles, small remote
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.
Pros: Fits neatly into a corner space
Cons: Flimsy aerial, LCD screen buzzes, disinterested customer service
Excerpt: I have had one of these in white for 6 months or so now, and I am resonably happy with it's performance. The features of the unit are: - Designed to work with most iPod models. Listen or wake to your iPod whilst it charges - Four independent alarm settings, with wake to tone, DAB, FM or iPod - Light...
Pros: Lots of features, love the energy saving mode on the screen and the remote !
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...
Pros: Good sound quality, iPod dock, Alarms
Cons: Slightly bad signal in my area, but not too bad; low iPod volume
