Excerpt: The Pure-Fi Express Plus is a portable iPod/iPhone speaker dock with a total of 4 speakers – two on each side of the unit. It uses omnidirectional acoustic technology to send out sound in all directions, and features a simple set of controls on the front of the unit. Adapters are included to allow you to use 1st through 3rd generation iPods and iPhones, and any other MP3 player can be used by plugging it into the 3.5mm auxiliary jack.
Pros: Included remote control, decent styling, relatively inexpensive..
Cons: Sound quality leaves a lot to be desired, size is not easily portable.
Summary: Logitech Pure-Fi Express Plus’ low price of $99.99 makes it well-suited to bargain hunters looking for a simple, affordable iPod speaker for a dorm room, office, den, or desk. It’s equally at home anywhere in a room, and it’s not bad for a day at the beach either. It’s a little chunky, so if you’re looking to save space on your desktop, Altec Lansing’s Moondance Home is thinner, has a more full-featured alarm, and costs about the same, but it doesn’t sound as good.
Pros: Built-in alarm clock, Runs on batteries or AC power, Easy to use, Omnidirectional sound gives more placement options,
Cons: No built-in rechargeable battery, iPodiPhone doesnt charge while speaker runs on battery power, No built-in radio, Remote doesnt navigate iPod,
Summary: Logitech's relatively inexpensive Pure-Fi Express Plus is a compact -- and portable -- iPod/iPhone speaker system. It's perfect for casual listening at home or on the road, but keep in mind that despite its omnidirectional design, this unit isn't built for a large room.
