Received this radio for Christmas and it does just what I need.
1) Bedside Radio/Clock, plenty of alarm programming options for stations, volume, weekdays/weekends etc. Great breadth of volume, Quiet enough (on level 2) to wake me up without being obtrusive and plenty loud for most sized rooms. Note: the backlight remain on when the radio plays from the alarm. The Audio quality is warm with sufficient bass, middle and treble although not top-end fidelity.
2) Recording - records my fave weekly program from BBC Radio 2 and plays back with no loss of quality. (I guess I could get this from the BBC iPlayer but having the radio based facility is easier.
3) Portable - can be readily moved from place to place (I need to buy the optional charging pack to take the unit outside the house). The plug-in transformer is small and compact.
4) Ergonomics - easy to use press buttons and looks attractive in any location. Chunky extended arial look a bit old fashioned though. Not easy to find the Snooze facility as its buried in the menus.

If the battery pack was included, slightly better Hi-Fi sound quality, nicer arial and easier to use snooze button I would award the 5th star.

The price is now dropping which makes this Radio a great choice.

20Jan update: All in all still very happy and I have now bought the battery pack which seems to work fine (not tested duration). However there are two restrictions to be aware of;
1)The 'Listen Later' recording is lost if you disconnect the radio from the mains to run on battery.
2)The alarm does not work on battery power.

I usually listen to the radio on my lap-top but have wanted a portable radio for ages so asked Santa for this one as I have been very good this year! I was a bit worried about buying a digital radio because, having done a lot of research and read many reviews, found that many people can't get their radios to tune in, or the radio can only find a few stations, or it breaks down after a few hours use. I couldn't find any reviews about this particular model which is quite new, but it has a lot of features, more than I need, and it sounded good on the Amazon blurb. As soon as I plugged the battery in and attached it to the mains it started tuning itself and I could listen to Radio 4 whilst cooking the Christmas lunch. The instructions are easy to follow. I can find loads of stations but I am not interested in very many of them. Most of the time I do not need to use the aerial - the only time I do have to use it is when the radio is right next to my lap-top. The sound quality seems crystal clear to me; music sounds good and so does speech. Santa gave me a rechargeable battery pack as well and although the radio has been on in the kitchen almost continuously since Christmas morning, only 1 bar has disappeared so that is looking good as well.I haven't tried any of the features such as "listen later" but if there are any issues when I do I will update my review.
The radio itself feels quite solid, it's stable and neat, quite heavy for its size. My one gripe is that it is supposed to be a portable but it does not have a handle - the radio is covered in a rubbery material which I suppose helps one to grip it firmly, but the lack of a handle was a disappointment. Other than that, I am very pleased with it and can probably squash it safely into my bag if I want to take it out somewhere.

I bought mine a couple of years ago, so this may not be relevant to the latest model, but the surface of the radio has become sticky and no amount of cleaning can change this. It feels like a bottle of beer has been thrown on the radio! It seems that the black surface reacts badly to normal room temperatures. I had to throw the radio away eventually as it was so unpleasant to handle.

Pure v Roberts: I listened to several radios before choosing this. I found the Pure radios more mellow than the Roberts range which to my ears were slightly too harsh (this seems to be a feature of the Roberts sound; I found a Roberts radio more harsh 20 years ago when I compared it with a similarly priced Sony - I bought the Sony).

MP3 capability: During my pre-purchase testing I was disappointed to find that, like my little Pure Move radio, the Pure One Elite (not the Series II model) automatically switched to auxiliary input when a 3.5mm jack plug was inserted in the input socket, and that the volume of the auxiliary source was not controllable by the radio volume control. However, the fantastic sound was more than compensation for this, and I found that, even at maximum, the volume control on other radios did not make my mp3 input any louder than the Pure One Elite; it could only make it quieter.

Having bought the Pure One Elite Series II (on the grounds that it was £8 cheaper on Amazon than what I suppose we must now call the Pure One Elite Series I) I am delighted to find that it does not automatically switch to auxiliary input when the cable is plugged in (you can leave it plugged in and press the `source' button when you want to swap from radio to your mp3 player), and that the volume of the auxiliary source is controllable by the radio's own volume control (and may even amplify it).

I am puzzled why this modification is not trumpeted by Pure, but all credit to them for responding positively to the comments made by the reviewers of the Pure One Elite Series I.

Sound quality: It is difficult to put into words how impressed I am with this radio's sound.
