This review is from: Pure Move 2500 Rechargeable Personal Digital DAB/FM Radio - Black (Electronics)
My old Phillips pocket DAB radio gave up the ghost about a year ago and I've bee waiting for a suitable replacement to come along. There were offerings from Roberts and Pure but this model seemed a step up. Reception and sound quality are excellent. It works fine on the train (Hereford to London) apart from the tunnels. Earbuds are decent though not as comfortable as my Creative earbuds which also work fine. My X-Fi mini-speaker doesn't work; cable too short to work as an aerial so I'm looking for longer connector. I'm not a fan of the wheel/dial that controls all the functions as I'm a bit cack-handed with these things but probably fine if you've owned an i-gadget which I haven't. Setting up favourites was simple enough but I did lose them all when I let the battery run right down. These last 2 points is why it only gets 4 stars. Style is modern and slightly understated and build feels good. Bass/treble control is nice touch.

That's odd that you lost your favourites when you let the battery run down. When I use this in the bedroom, I take the battery out and run it via the supplied mains cable. My stored favourite settings, and all other settings for that matter, are always retained. I've left the unit unplugged and without the battery in for days on end and I've never had to reset any settings. The unit sets the internal clock itself automatically.

I'll check whether there has been a firmware update but I have lost my favourites about 3 or 4 times now and always when the battery has run right down. There may be another reason I lose the favourites but I haven't fathomed it yet.
