5.0 out of 5 stars Great set of headphones, 18 Dec. 2010
I really like these headphones, for the following reasons:

1 - They looks smart & come in a posh matt black case
2 - They have a handy case for carry them around
3 - The volume control works really well and increases the volume of my mp3 player by a considerable amount
4 - They sound great
5 - They are comforable to wear and stay in my ears

All in all a great purchase.

1.0 out of 5 stars Could have been great, but is actually rubbish, 15 Nov. 2010
This should have been a great cheap and cheerful phone but a simple design flaw has ruined its potential.

GOOD POINTS
- Smart, cheap, light, good battery, good reception, good features, handy flashlight

NEGATIVE POINTS
- Most phones have two speakers, one on the front for normal use and one on the back for when the speakerphone is selected. This phone has combined the two in to one central speaker, which projects both front and back. This might sound practical, but the problem is it always projects to both sides, meaning the whole room gets to hear your conversation. There is no option to only project from the front side.

This single flaw has made the phone unusable for me. I guess it would be fine for someone to keep in their glove box for emergencies, but it's not practical to use around people as it offers no privacy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and cheerful, 15 Nov. 2010
Good value radio, but you get what you pay for.

GOOD POINTS
- Small unit
- Smart minimalist design
- Great built in battery
- Great range of input sources - SD/MMC card - USB - AUX jack
- Small remote which works well
- Great selection of extras included such an aux jack-to-jack cable, USB charger, main charger, etc.

NEGATIVE POINTS
- System turn off if volume is turned too loud
- No easy way of skipping through albums on external inputs. For example if you put a SD card in with 10 albums on it, it will always play from the first track and you can only skip forward track by track.
- The screen doesn't display track info from external inputs. e.g all tracks just come up as 01, 02, 03, making it hard to locate specific songs.
- The radio reception isn't too strong and easy picks up interferance depending on where it's positioned.

Overall this is excellent value for money considering the range of options that are included, but the quality is poor. In the end I wasn't satisfied with it and splashed out a bit of extra cash for the Pure ONE Mini DAB radio, which is not much more expensive but far more impressive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product, 15 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm very happy with this player. It does everything I wanted.

GOOD POINTS
- Plays DVDs well
- Plays foreign DVDs once you've entered the region crack (search it in google, it only takes two minutes)
- Plays well from the USB stick
- Upscales well
- Remote works well

NEGATIVE POINTS
- The first unit I received didn't work properly, but Amazon were very efficient and sent me a replacement within two days. The new one worked fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent little radio, 15 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This radio is great and highly recommended.

GOOD POINTS
- Excellent sound quality and volume for the size of the unit.
- Easy to use controls
- Great reception
- Nice built quality and finish
- Easy to read screen
- Good jumps in volume, making it easy to get the right level
- Excellent power consumption

BAD POINTS
- The screen is always backlit. This seems unnecessary (especially for an eco product) and creates quite a glow when in a dark room.

Overall a great radio. I did extensive research before buying this and I couldn't find a better product on the market. Buy it now!

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good but could be better, 15 Nov. 2010
This radio is good, but not perfect.

GOOD POINTS:
- Small, light and compact
- Great battery
- Great screen
- Great reception
- Really nice metal finish
- Excellent power consumption

BAD POINTS:
- The flip stand positions the radio almost vertical, so it falls over with the slightest knock. It should have been designed to lean further back to make it more stable.
- The central dial performs five functions (previous station, next station, volume down, volume up and select) however it is so small and fiddly that it's really easy to click the wrong function. ie. change station when you meant to change volume. It would have made much more sense to have a separate rotary dial on the side for the volume controls.
- The power on button needs to be held for 5 seconds. I have no idea why - My other Pure DAB radio doesn't. It's quite annoying.
- The volume jumps up in large increases, making it hard to find the perfect volume.
- The sound is a bit tinny. Not surprising for the size of the radio, but it isn't the best sound quality.

In the end I returned this model for the PURE ONE Mini. In my opinion a much better radio as it doesn't have any of the negative points above.
