The good points are it's abilities to listen to the radio through the internet and DAB and also through the Flowserver ( though I am still working on that one - can't get that part to work yet).

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Full of features from the best DAB radio maker. I like pure products. Their support is good too. USB charging point is useful too. But consider the bad points..............( point).
Bad points:
Really really plasticy. Too light and feels like a cheap product. Considered returning it, but good features outweighed the poor materials used. Really suprised Pure has decided to keep the price under £100 by getting rid of one of their known selling points:- Good looking materials and a solid feel.

Nick, Liverpool Gadget lover

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent reception (DAB), sensible alarm settings, good sound (for a bedside radio), wireless music streaming aux input.

A few of the best bits:

I use this to stream music wirelessly from my NAS and it works really well, it will even use play lists stored on the NAS. Scrolling through albums, artists, songs or the file system is very quick and easy. It sets it's own date and time (and remembers your alarms etc), so the only reason it won't go off is if there is a power cut at the time you want to wake up. I've not tried waking up to streamed music, but the menus suggest it is possible.

Connecting to my network was easy and syncing with The Lounge was ok (a bit of a faff).

The background sounds are interesting (but I've not used them seriously), allowing you to fill the room with the noise of a babbling brook or jungle noises. It even has white and pink noise settings that can help tinnitus sufferers get to sleep (my fiancée is an audiologist). This is a service received online using The Lounge.

I bought this to replace the FM radio in the bedroom that had awful reception. The DAB is brilliant with only very rare interference. I live in Liverpool, so I guess it's not too much of a test, but it is much better than the FM radio managed.

I've had the radio for a while now and it's been really good. It does everything I wanted it to and a little more. It's a bit expensive for a bedside DAB radio, but if you like the idea of having all of your music available without an mp3 player and cables, then it is a great solution. I would highly recommend it.
Bad points:
The touch buttons are very difficult to use in a dark room (not lit up) and even when you can see them they can be a bit frustrating. They are a bit of a gimmick, but definitely not a deal breaker.

When the radio is on, the time display is very small which is a little annoying in the mornings. This is necessary to display all the radio information, so I guess I have to live with it. To be honest, I haven't checked whether the display can be changed, so this may even be a moot point.
