“Good”

Written on: 18/06/2013 by SecundaNisbet355 (6 reviews written)

Good radio, does what it says on the tin, can pick up load of channels, the style is good and so is the functionality, easy to handle and small enough to fit anywhere. … Read Full Review

“Nice little radio”

Written on: 11/06/2013 by GabriellaOdryna530 (7 reviews written)

I like this radio, a little expensive at £120 or something like that, can't totally remember how much it was but I felt that it was expensive, but it does what it says on the tin, works well, sound is ok, it picks up allot of stations, and I also like the style… Read Full Review

“Nice Little Radio”

Written on: 23/04/2013 by Hallsyk (12 reviews written)

I bought one of this for my wife for the kitchen see that she doesn't really like the kind of music I listen too, I must say that it a nice little radio, very easy to tune in and quite compact and solid but pretty small, in fact it doesn't take much space at all. It's a good little device that just lacks a bit of power in sound, but if you're looking for a simple digital radio then this is ideal… Read Full Review

“Poor long-term reliability”

Written on: 23/03/2013 by Workerant (3 reviews written)

After working excellently for a while with great sound quality, it now shows all the evidence of the fault that so many other users have come up against. Any power interruption causes the set to go into 'Waiting for software upgrade' mode and it is a swine to get back. The instructions given by Pure are misleading and border on being just plain wrong. The software patch you download contains instructions that have no semblance in reality. Pure of course, deny it's their problem (Out of… Read Full Review

“Pure Evoke 3”

Written on: 20/01/2013 by robertso (20 reviews written)

The value of Pure Evoke 3...Choosing radio stations from a list rather than frequency is a stregth that comes with this device, further more if you are in an area with good reception then you will be able to recive quality radio as the signal is ree from interference. Its price can also be considered as fair and thus making it a cheaper option. Despite this, I would say, more futures need to be added in future models… Read Full Review

“It Doesn't Work”

Written on: 01/11/2012 by RoyBurton (1 review written)

I bought a Pure Evoke-2 radio for a Christmas present for my wife about 2 years ago. Unfortunately, although we live in the metropolitan area of Perth, there is no reception. I think that this may be because of a steep hill behind our house. I know nothing about radios and how the waves are transmitted. What I do know is that, although digital radio has been spruked as being the best thing since sliced bread, and from what I've read, the Pure radio is the best, the one I bought doesn't… Read Full Review

“The Pure Evoke 3 is a large radio and has no problem...”

Written on: 20/02/2011 by amiathlon (1 review written)

The Pure Evoke 3 is a large radio and has no problem filling a medium room without straining the quality of the audio. I power the radio from the mains adapter although there is a battery option. Mine only takes 2GB SD cards (not the larger SDHC cards)and so you could not import much of your music library.I find the SD facility is very useful for recording radio plays and comedy shows from Radio 7 for later listening either on the radio or transferred via my computer to my ipod. The electronic… Read Full Review

I have had my Pure Evoke 3 about 3 months. I like every thing about it. Sound quality is great, easy to use, being able to record programs is areal boon and the plus of playing my MP3 music via the SD disc is an added bonus.
I would recommend this radio without reservation… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/02/2007 by mattesdon (3 reviews written)

We've had the Evoke 3 since it first came out so I guess about a year and a bit now.
We already had an Evoke One which was fine as an alarm clock but we wanted something more substantial for downstairs.
We haven't looked back really, it's been great. We carry it around the house and garden to wherever we are and the battery pack lasts for ages so we don't need to worry about taking a cable with us.
What else can I say - we love it!!
There are plenty of alarms if you need to set one for you… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/01/2007 by cth (5 reviews written)

Received as Xmas present. Worked for 2 hours then put on standby. When turned on again showed it was picking up stations but no sound. Eventually reset to get working again. Next time turned on, no sound despite showing all stations available. Reset didn't work. No sound on FM either. I'm in good reception area, hadn't done something stupid like mute, or record and lost signal (see Pure website). Google it and you'll find a lot of similar cases. Rubbish reliability for very expensive radio in… Read Full Review

This sounds just like my experience. We didn't even get the first two hours of reception.

I wonder if the people at Pure read these reviews and, if they do, whether they try to fix the problems.

Written on: 21/10/2006 by db112358 (5 reviews written)

I have owned this unit for just over 2 months, and along with my MP3 player, it has rapidly become an item I cannot imagine living without. The build quality of the Pure Evoke 3 DAB digital radio is excellent. Reception pull-in is the best I have had from a DAB radio. Sound quality is good, though not so great that I haven't chosen to use my Harmon Soundsticks as external speakers fed via the headphone socket.

However, the two killer features for me are the electronic programme guide and the… Read Full Review

Pure Evoke 3 is as good as the Pure Pocket 2000 is bad. How both products could be produced by the same manufacturer is a mystery to me. I am very pleased with the Evoke 3 and think it worth paying the extra to get the features which the Evoke 2 does not have… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/06/2006 by martin99 (29 reviews written)

Evoke 3 from PURE is a 21st Century 'radio-cassette recorder' - with superior sound and 'no cassettes'. Recordings are made onto SD (Secure Digital) cards, like those found in digital cameras, and the unit supports cards up to 1Gb, each holding oodles of stuff.

Recordings can be transferred to your computer via the USB interface. When attached to a PC, Evoke 3's SD card is seen as an external mass storage device. So moving items across is simple. Just 'drag-and-drop'.

Evoke 3 is also an MP3… Read Full Review
