Summary: Logitech Pure fi elite have a good, strong, clear sound. It fills up a big room easily with out sound distortions. I also purchase a similar bose sound system and logi tech definitely sound better. LOgitech have weak radio reception though...Overall a great product for the price.
Summary: Everything written about this product in the PC Magazine review that convinced me this was the best dock for me was true. The price-point is phenomenal but there are downside benefits to the price: No handle for easy carrying around; the remote does not allow you to change menu selections on your ipod/iphone. Forget about alarm clocks . . . who cares! All in all, I'd rather deal with the downside benefits in favor of the fantastic sound quality at such a low price.
Summary: PROS: Purchased through Amazon, the product arrived as promised within a week, new in the box with a US warranty, complete with all needed accessories. It was out of the box and producing room filling good quality sound within 15 minutes (it took us a few extra minutes to select the correct IPOD adapter due to the extra tight fit with our version of the NANO). I shopped for weeks before selecting this make and model and couldn't be happier.
Summary: We bought the Logitech Pure-Fi Elite for use on our back deck. It had high ratings for sound quality and we are very satisfied with what we have heard. We listen to a wide range of music and listening outdoors we don't expect concert hall sound. Even at low volume levels we have had no complaints. The Pure-Fi Elite works well with both my video iPod and my wife's older classic iPod. The Pure-Fi Elite also had other features we were looking for -- AM/FM radio and a clock.
Summary: Right out of the box, you realize there's nothing flimsy about the Pure-Fi Elite. The unit is heavy relative to size. It's a sleek, solid black. The display pictures show it without the speaker covers. You don't see the woofer and tweeter when you're looking at the actual unit. The front of the base is at a 30 degree angle, which makes it easy to see the controls and the display screen.
Great... it could be perfect, but I'll settle for great.

Summary: I'm now two weeks into a very positive experience with the Logitech Pure-Fi Elite High Performance Speaker System. If you're of the age that remembers vinyl LPs and table sized stereo systems (not table top systems, but table sized) like me, you'll be blown away with the Logitech Pure-Fi Elite High Performance Speaker System's capacity to fill the room with rich sound! Using your iPod as the music source, the Pure-Fi Elite almost... almost...
Summary: THE GOOD: This product works with any kind of iPod. Logitech includes a set of adapters that snap on to the docking port. My mini works in it beautifully (although you do have to remove any clip attachments or covers you have on your iPod first). Set up is pretty much idiot proof and takes about 5 minutes. Includes a "sleep" function so that you can set it to go off when you want. Sadly, there is no alarm feature. Light enough to carry from room to room if you want to.
Logitech 980-000127 Pure-Fi Elite High Performance Speaker System
23 February 2008
Summary: Does everything it is advertised to do and does most of it quite well. FM reception (always a problem within my house) is no better or worse than other devices that depend upon a wire as an antenna. Fills the room with good (3+ out of 5) quality sound. Looks good. Easy, intuitive controls. Adequate remote. Excellent value -- 85% of the sound for 50% of the cost of "the best." Overall, 4 of 5.
Summary: I bought one of these for my wife to use in her business. She loves it. It provides the quality of sound she likes and it keeps her iPod charged. The remote provides a great deal of control for her AND she just likes the way it looks in her store. The 4-stars is for the lack of a mid-range control of a small graphic e.q. on the unit.
Summary: The Logitech Pure-Fi is a great speaker system for an ipod. It's sound quality is equal to the Bose unit, but yet it has additional features and costs about half. However, don't buy it if you're looking for a good radio! I ended up adding a $50 powered FM antenna to make the radio even adequate for static-free reception on a few stations. If you're looking for a decent AM/FM radio, spend $20 and get a good one.
