Excerpt: I have a Pure One Digital radio that I use when I'm working from home. It's a really simple design that even the most stubborn analogue radio user like me can get the hang of in no time. I decided to stick with the Pure One brand when I was looking for a more compact model to take on holiday and to use on the allotment.
Summary: I'm not sure who is in charge of quality control at PURE, but my PURE ONE Mini lasted three weeks before it died. Thanks to Amazon's excellent customer service a replacement arrived at my door two days after reporting the fault. Eagerly, I opened the box of my new unit, connected the mains supply and the sweet sound of DAB reception sang from the small speaker. Unfortunately the display did not work and I was now the owner of two faulty PURE ONE Mini Radios.
Summary: I asked for, and was given this radio as a present. It is without a doubt the most infuriating of the dozen DAB radios that I have. The web sites now make it clear that the rechargeable battery pack is an optional extra: at the time, this was not clear, and they were not in stock at PURE. For the first few weeks, this portable radio was firmly anchored to a plug in the wall. But more frustrating is the poor technology.
