Pure Move 400D Palm Sized Rechargeable Digital DAB/FM Radio - Silver
Pure Move 400D Palm Sized Rechargeable Digital DAB/FM Radio - Silver

5.0 out of 5 stars A five star radio is improved further., 10 Jan. 2016
I bought the previous version of this radio (with on off switch at side) from Amazon 3 years ago and gave it 5 stars despite a couple of cons (the on off switch was awkward to use and the digital volume jumped from inaudible to slightly too loud). The awkward on off switch eventually broke altogether (out of warranty). A local repair shop quoted nearly the price of a new one with no guarantee but Pure (after a bit of chasing) quoted a bit less to pick up and return it repaired with a 1 yr. guarantee. As the radio was so much better than others I'd had, I opted for that and, in fact, got a refurbished version of this 400D as replacement which is as good as new.
I'm well pleased, as Pure have addressed the two flaws I mentioned. The on off switch is now a simple button on the front and the volume seems to jump in smaller increments (I'd still prefer a wheel). Otherwise they have left this excellent little radio very much as before. It may seem expensive but don't forget the charge pack is included and not extra as in some models, and gives long life; making it truly portable, unlike the ones which run off conventional batteries, which can only be used unplugged for short spells before the batteries need changing. Other reviewers have covered the other points so will only add that if you want a small, truly portable, DAB radio then this one is out on its own.

Works fine. Does have a slightly flimsy feel about it but good for the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book recalling the cold war era, 13 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Written when the cold war was at it's height the book offered an insight into the paranoia and distrust of the time, while managing to be entertaining and easy to read. The wealth of authentic background information about post-war Berlin and its imhabitants adds further to the enjoyment. The first of a trio of trilogies (9 books) the plots are self-contained and dont have to be read in order except possibly this one, as its the first.
Those alive at the time of the cold war will recall it's climate of fear. To those born later I suspect the effect will be less and will be more like a good historical novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works well on Kindle, 26 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Books like this with no photos and lots of stats work well in the Kindle format. It would be nice if each county had a separate chapter, I had to painfully scroll to the beginning of each and then bookmark it. But once this is done its a handy reference during a game. I saw several people using a Kindle at Lords recently but most of them were reading a novel! Maybe they had the cricket stats on there as well?

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't beat the real thing, 8 Feb. 2014

Not worth bothering with cheap imitations; they tear, disintegrate and you can never find the end. Make sure to buy the real Sellotape Golden at the best price you can find.

These are a bit thin and flimsy but I expected that for the money. They do the job perfectly well.

5.0 out of 5 stars If there was a Sebo owners club I'd join!, 8 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Way better than any other cleaner I've ever used. Oh joy, it uses bags so you dont get filthy emptying it. And the dust compresses into the bags so you dont need to change them so often. It doesnt topple over when using the extension if you are careful, the trick is to use it side-on. And despite low wattage its very powerful. Brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent charger - worth the extra, 8 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to replace a cheap and nasty charger which was getting hot and didnt seem to be charging the batteries properly (it was pretty old). Having read the reviews I always charge in pairs of the same type. No great hardship. And as suspected the batteries last much longer than with the old charger.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent avante-garde jazz, world music, 8 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mu Second Part (Audio CD)
If you dont have MU First part then buy them both together as they were originally two LPs which are available on a single CD if you look around. This CD is just the second LP. If like me you already have First Part and like it, then this Second Part is a must. This is marmite music, you either love or hate it, so if you are not familiar with Don Cherry's music try and sample a track first. Ed Blackwell is superb on drums and Cherry is inspired, playing a variety of instruments as well as his trademark pocket trumpet. Its not easy listening but its well worth the effort.
