Unreliable 'Quality' radio stopped working too soon

Ve5pa_Man, Amazon
21 December 2013
  • Summary: As other 1 star reviews also state, ours stopped working far sooner than I'd expect for a supposed quality brand, lasting short of 4 years. One day our radio decided not to find any of the pre-set channels so we had to manualy tune each time we switched channels.

Dead Radio

Tony, Amazon
21 October 2013
  • Summary: Unfortunately I have had this radio for just about 2 years. It has completely died on me. I am only awarding one star because of the wooden box looking good. It looks lovely and worked great until just one day that was it!

DO NOT BUY THIS UNRELIABLE PRODUCT

Mike, Amazon
27 March 2013
  • Summary: I've got the Tempus-1XT (same radio, but mains only). Had it a few years, and it's increasingly unreliable. It loses the time (the clock just stops), and the alarm function packs up (which isn't very clever when you want a radio alarm to wake you up in the mornings), it loses the presets, the...

Don't buy this

C. Naylor "C.", Amazon
22 March 2013
  • Summary: I bought my Pure DAB radio in 2010 and up to mid morning of 17 Mar 2013 it was working fine. But then the radio decided that it's software needed to be upgraded and displayed the message "Upgrade (revA)" in it's window. Nothing on the radio now worked.

What were Pure thinking?

JT, Amazon
29 November 2012
  • Summary: We already have a Pure Tempus 1 and wanted another just like it. This appears to be the updated version. However, upon delivery I find that it has had some of the most useful features removed such as multiple alarms and a one touch sleep timer.

Pure Evoque Radio: Totally User Unfriendly

Koshe May, Amazon
21 June 2012
  • Summary: As a digital radio it works well and the sound is correct. I also purchased it as an alarm clock to wake me up in the morning. I haven't been able to use it reliably. The instructions are confusing and the system too complex. Very frustrating!

Muffled

Redtagheur, Amazon
22 February 2012
  • Summary: If you like to hear people talking into a pillow then this is the DAB radio for you. It's so muffled it's on a par with the Goodmans GSR80DAB. The whole purpose of digital radio is clarity. This radio has no treble, no tone control. It's just not worth the money. Get a Roberts DAB instead.

EVOKE 1S

Reviewer, CompareStorePrices
21 September 2010
  • Excerpt: Very disappointed with this radio. Build quality is poor with the radio not inset to the wooden frame correctly and the sound quality is appalling. I can only liken it to listening to a normal radio with a pillow over the speaker.

Pure waste of money

King Chimps "K_C", Amazon
26 March 2009
  • Summary: I am writing this review after owning this radio for just over a year now, after buying from this site. The radio has now broken! Very, very poor value for money as it is quite expensive! One day, it simply spluttered and now it only works on certian days - what a let down.

Nearly great - but poor audio

John Bastable, Amazon
25 January 2008
  • Summary: I bought this radio on the basis of the reviews and my daughter's excellent Pure 'One' DAB radio. It feels well built, the display is gorgeous and the controls are easy to use. The big downside for me was the audio quality. First of all the bass seems overly emphasised and there is no tone control!
