Rubberized coating becomes horribly sticky through exposure to sun

Boetheus Prettypenny, Amazon
6 October 2014
  • Summary: I'm writing this about four years after buying an Elan II through Amazon. A truly massive problem with this radio is the rubberized coating. Although there's no warning whatsover about this in the manual, exposure to even moderate sunlight causes the coating to take on a glazed appearance and, far,...

Not a happy experience

Miss Ann Thrope, Amazon

  • Summary: Spent endless time repositioning the antenna and/or the unit itself in an endeavour to achieve decent reception for longer than ten minutes - despite the display indicating 100% signal strength.

Poor reception. Slow start-up on battery. Solid-construction. Loud.

Hunter Roach, Amazon

  • Summary: Update after two years: The radio is a turkey. It often restarts when picked up. The LED screen goes blank making operation difficult. The online manual explaining how to tune presets 5 and beyond is wrong. I know another who has the Pure One and it can also restart when picked up.

Pure Elan 2 - disappointing

Mountain Rover, Amazon
28 May 2011
  • Summary: I had had a Pure Elan ('I') for about six years, having seen it in M&S and decided to treat myself to celebrate a new job. I was pleased and it performed quite well though not without faults over that time (e.g. switching itself off when at a high volume).

  • Summary: Returned as below par. Sounded very tinny to me. Have now bought a Roberts RD21B(ECO4) Ecologic 4 DAB/FM RDS Digital Stereo Radio wth up to 150 Hours Battery Life from Amazon. 10 times better.

Lausig

H. Hanke "SG1", Amazon
20 August 2014
  • Summary: Von der seltsamen Anfassqualität mal ganz abgesehen (mancher mag ja vllt. diese gummiartige Oberfläche, auf der man jeden, also wirklich jeden Fingerabdruck sieht), aber der Empfänger ist wirklich unterste Schublade.

nicht empfehlenswert

V. Gruber "Vero", Amazon
23 May 2012
  • Summary: Ich habe das Radio nicht über amazon erworben, sondern bei einem Elektrohändler gekauft. Das erste Gerät funktionierte überhaupt nicht (!), woraufhin es ausgetauscht wurde. Das zweite Gerät habe ich jetzt seit einigen Monaten und es weist beträchtliche Mängel auf: Gelegentlich funktioniert das...

Software-Fehler im DAB-Teil nicht zu empfehlen.

  • Summary: Möchte man das Radio einschalten passiert erst mal eine Minute gar nichts. Ist die Wartezeit verstrichen steht im Display, Sender nicht verfügbar, danach wieder warten. Sollte es nun einen Radio Sender gefunden haben und man möchte den Sender Wechseln so muss man wieder Geduld haben.
