    I only bought this radio because it was in the Black Friday promotion, however I'm glad I did as this is a nice little budget DAB radio which has no problem picking up stations in what is a (supposedly) poor reception area. Sound is very radio-alarm-clock standard, however for my use is fine as I mostly use it to listen to speech. If you want to listen to music though I'd personally spend more on a better sounding model if it's to be your primary radio.

    The main drawback is that it doesn't take standard batteries and you have to buy the special Pure brand battery, the chargePAK (which I bought after the purchase), if you want to use it portable. It's a shame really as it seems a blatant cash-in to get you to spend more money on the unit (and the battery isn't cheap), however if you do purchase the chargePAK, it will last more than enough hours on a single charge and still keeps the unit very light.

    Also bear in mind that this is a basic model and lacks features such as a headphone socket or line-in/out, however with the purchase of the battery, I've ended up with what I wanted (i.e. a light radio I can walk round the house with in the mornings). Just bear in mind that additional battery cost if you want it to be portable.

    Nice looking radio, handy size and very user friendly - easy to set up, uncomplicated controls.

    The sound is pretty punchy for a small radio, although the sound quality isn't top drawer. Fair enough, it's at the budget end of the range, but even so I have a couple of non-Pure DAB radios around the house which were both cheaper than the Mi but have a richer and more mellow sound. I listen to a lot of classical music so that tends to be where any deficiencies show up.

    Also, be aware that if you want to use the radio on the hoof, you'll have to shell out for a special chargepak. It won't take ordinary batteries. My Pure pocket radio came with an integral chargepak, and for some reason I hadn't cottoned on to the fact that the Pure Mi doesn't. You don't have to buy this of course, as it works on the mains, but the whole point of its size is that it's very portable.

    There's a smart-looking orange and black cover available as an optional extra, so if you're prepared to splash out, this will all make for a very nice little package. It's great as a second radio, or if you want one small and light enough to take out and about. If it's going to be your only radio, though, and spend its time at home, you could get a bigger one with better quality sound for the same sort of money, if you look around.

    This is my second purchase of the Pure One Digital Radios range - some may have also seen my review of the Pure One Mini, which was my first purchase. I wanted a smaller, more portable radio and this certainly fits the bill, being very light and about palm sized.

    Thankfully, this latter, the smallest addition to the range does not retain the major drawback I highlighted of the Mini radio. The Chargepak, again sold separately, could hardly have been easier to insert. No pesky wires and plenty of space and with my first clicking push it connected firmly and easily and worked straight away. It was also mostly charged when first inserted, which was an extra small benefit, helping the user realise it was already working and in order. Well done Pure!

    The radio is also particularly easy to use, I found no difficulty in following the instructions and was quickly able to set up the few presets for the stations I regularly listen to.

    As highlighted by other reviewers, the sound quality is good for a small DAB radio but not as great as that of the larger editions of the range. So, if you listen to a lot of music rather than talk, (or you are not concerned with portability) you may prefer other radios, particularly the Mini. I mostly listen to talk radio and the sound quality I find is perfectly good for my purposes.

    So, why four stars?

    1) Pure still do not sell the radio with the charge pak included, I would guess most purchasers do buy the chargepak so why do you not get the option that they come together?

    2) This is the first radio I've ever had with no headphone socket! Surely this is one of the prerequisites for 'portable' radios.

    I would still recommend this radio with no hesitation.

    Well it is an unjustified price. If you want a radio that is plugged in all the time you wouldn't really buy this but then Pure give you one option to make it portable which is the expensive bespoke battery. This pushes the total price to an unreasonable level for such a poor sounding radio. I only needed this for speech type radio such as R4 and R4Extra.

    Obviously I'm not expecting to be amazed by sound quality but how about at least some clarity eh Pure? I have heard the Pure Evoke and One Elite and was impressed with the clear sound. This however is different. The unit is mostly fresh air inside so resonances make it sound boxy, added to this is a prominence in upper mid-range that adds a harsh irritability to voices. Basically it sounds like a dirt cheap radio but it wasn't cheap!

    My 1985 Grundig 'Boy' sounds much better than this M1, I thought a quick update to Pure digital portability was a step forward but I was wrong.
