5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!, 20 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought one of these to allow me to connect the digital outputs of my two set top boxes and a games console to a single input on my new AV receiver. It worked straight away no problems.

I'm trying to work out if it 'auto-switches' (I didn't think it did) because I've yet to use the remote... but everything just seems to work...!

I may be editing this later...

4.0 out of 5 stars Cable yes, connectors... not sure., 20 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these as they look really robust... and certainly the cables are as they're sheathed in flexible but tough outer protection... but I have my doubts about the connectors which look metal in the pictures but are (or at least certainly feels like) really cheap plastic. Not sure they'd take a lot of repeated plugging and unplugging but would likely be ace for a semi-permanent install.

5.0 out of 5 stars Decent quality, good value..., 20 April 2014

Ideal for extending and gender-changing. Seem decent quality as I've used some in the past which were 'noisy' or poorly connected. Good value too compared to some. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for 2nd drive install..., 20 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this for my HP mobile workstation as a part of a SSD upgrade. Made installing the internal second drive easy. It's made of quite thin metal though... and mine arrived slightly bent and with a dent but it didn't affect the install as once it's screwed to the drive, it all straightens out... mostly! Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Should have been included..., 20 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had to buy this to make my Pure Evoke F4 portable. Given the price of that DAB radio, it really should have been included! Despite that, it does as you'd expect and lasts the good part of a long day (of continuous use) before needing a recharge and takes around an hour and a bit to fully do that.

Recommended (even though I think Pure are being a bit cheeky)...

5.0 out of 5 stars Decent quality and good value..., 20 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've used Amazon Basics HDMI cables before - including flat ones with angle-able connectors - and they've always been excellent-performing and good value. They're pretty robust as some of mine are still working fine after have taken months of a lot of repeated abuse (constant plugging, unplugging, pinching and tugging - dreadful treatment, I know!)... so much so that they're the only sensibly priced cable that I'd trust enough for a permanent in-wall install. Definitely recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant DAB / FM / Internet Radio with Network Streaming and more!, 16 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought a Pure Oasis Flow a while back, basically for its DAB / FM / Internet radio reception, network streaming, rechargeable power portability and weather resistant casing... and it's been doing a brilliant job primarily as our shower room radio but is also excellent at providing audio when we're doing a bit of outdoor gardening, for example. When recently looking for a versatile digital radio to perform mainly 'bedroom alarm clock' duties, I very nearly bought another one... until I saw the Evoke F4...

It has all of the same basic functionality as the Oasis Flow... but in addition, it has Bluetooth connectivity (via an included plug-in USB Bluetooth adaptor) so that you can use the F4 as a wireless speaker for Sony 'Throw' / Apple 'Airplay' audio streaming from your mobile phone or tablet. It is also able to record radio audio to USB memory (apparently a 2Gb USB memory stick can hold up to 15 hours)... and it has the capability of adding an additional matching speaker for stereo reproduction (this particular purchase included the optional extension speaker).

It's a very nice looking radio... and while it doesn't have the ruggedness of the Oasis Flow, the polished 'piano black' finish, bright white OLED display, function-illuminated touch sensitive buttons and smoked chrome 'SnoozeHandle' and highlights make for a very classy impression. I've read that some find the menu systems on Pure radios a little 'clunky' but I've personally found them fairly easy to navigate... although on occasion, it can be a bit tricky to remember where certain functions are 'hidden'. DAB and FM radio reception performance is very good, even with its telescopic aerial retracted. Network streaming also performs well (and was easy to set up) as does the Bluetooth streaming (tested with an Apple iPad 2 and a Sony Xperia Z1). And on the default EQ setting (bass and treble are adjustable), audio is clear and well balanced for both music and voice.

Downsides? Like the Oasis Flow, it takes an age to 'boot up' if using it without mains power (it 'shuts down' rather than going into 'standby'). And speaking of which, while it comes with a mains power adaptor / charger, it does not come included with the rechargeable Pure ChargePak F1, which at time of writing is a 33 add-on(!!). The timed record facility is a bit of a hit and miss affair (I've only got it to work once out of four goes, however the instant record - just pressing the record button - seems to work just fine). The EQ isn't very good. It's best left at default (boosting bass for example, just seems to reduce the treble, without doing any bass boosting at all). And apparently, It's also been robbed of its ability to be compatible with Pure's own Jongo wireless speaker systems (it used to be compatible but recent updates from Pure have purposely disabled this). While that last feature doesn't really bother me too much, it may be of concern to anyone wanting to have wireless multi-room radio driven by the F4. Odd that it used to do it... and now it doesn't...

Other than that, I'm really pleased with it. As a versatile alarm radio, it's brilliant. And with the optional rechargeable Chargepak, it's not tied to the bedroom (I can see it making its way around the house).

Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Hero's T-Shirt..., 13 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this as a present for my (soon to be) brother-in-law and first-time Dad. I thought he'd more than earned it when his teething baby daughter started crying in the most reverberant of church halls at the ceremony of a friend's wedding we all attended... and just how totally unfazed he was whilst - within no more than ten seconds - he sequentially unleashed his arsenal of various pacifiers in an attempt to hush the din erupting from this small but formidable source...

'Waaaa!' Bottle of milk in... spat... 'Waaaa!' Dummy in... spat... 'Waaaa!' Calpol on the gums... spat... 'Waaaa!' Teething toy in...

Silence.

He didn't even bat an eyelid at all the tutting, huffing and rolleye'ing emerging from certain stuffy individuals either. What a hero.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great present for a father of two girls...!, 10 Mar 2014

Bought this for the father in law as a jokey present for Christmas.

Actually, if you'd met his two daughters (one of which is my other half) you'd see why he was so confident about wearing this T-shirt with pride out in public...

Bought this for my (very girlie) niece... and yes, I am trying to get her into playing the drums. If I don't make definitive moves like this, my missus will have her playing the flute...
