Excerpt: My partner and I take a few camping trips each year up to Aviemore to enjoy the occasional sunny weather we experience in the summer time. Part of what makes our camping trips enjoyable is our ability to sit outside in the sun with an ice cold drink, relaxing and listening to the radio.
Pros: Durable, Portable and great sound quality, lots of radio stations to choose from
Summary: Very good looking, very chunky, very outdoors, it does all it says it does. I have listened to it in a rainshower outside, in the shower inside, I am confident that it would stand up to an earthquake! I shall be buried with this & shall expect to be listening at the trump!
Everything I Need From a Radio But With One Huge Flaw

Summary: Fantastic piece of kit. But badly let down by 'Listen Again' function frequently crashing. When a stream is interrupted, the programme is not paused, but stops completely and you have to restart the stream.
Summary: This is just what we wanted, small, good quality, good sound, Wifi, DAB and at a reasonable cost too. Had the unit for a couple of months now and performs very well, great for linking it with you IPoD too (you will just need an in-expensive cable to do this).
Summary: Ordered this as part of the Black Friday offer as have been a "Pure" user for sometime with other products. Pro: very robust; good sound quality; seems to be able to justify the weatherproof tag; Pure brand.
Summary: I've had this radio for a few months now really like using it overall. The sound quality is fine and the DAB and FM reception is great. It's a big heavy beast of a thing and it feels really solid, however the 'metal' parts do scratch quite easily if you, for example, knock it off a low table while...
Summary: Bigger than I expected, though sturdy. Charge doesn't last as long as I expected, and when switched on takes a few seconds to kick in. It occasionally loses signal, regardless of whether DAB, FM or Internet is being used.
Summary: Easy to connect to network, good FM reception, good sound. Can work on battery for around 5 - 6 hours. Plays internet and home collection. Needs more stable media server, its work with Twonky is unreliable, at least with my home configuration (iMac + MacBook Air).
Summary: Having seen other reviews complaining about the battery, I was dubious about purchasing this radio. However I'm now pleased with it. Yes it is bigger than expected & yes the battery charging "appears" dodgy.
