“Designed to fail?”

Written on: 30/12/2013 by Auntypure (1 review written)

Had a pure dab, evoke one. Lasted about 5 years then it suffered a loss of software meaning it was useless. Pure admitted that they could not repair it, offered a pathetic discount on a new one. Refused to confirm that they would be able to repair this one in the future either! So, it went to landfill. We bought a second hand Crown DAB via ebay. This is a much better radio, more sensitive, better sound and has been utterly reliable for 3 years. It cost £12, that's value unlike Pure. The… Read Full Review

“Disappointing short life span.”

Written on: 16/09/2012

I received the Pure Tempus 1 radio as a gift about 5 years ago and was really pleased with the sound and look of it and the ease of use. However the screen has now frozen on the blue back light with no stations showing, no sound and nothing works when any of the buttons are pressed. This is so disappointing as I would have thought that something this expensive would work for years and years - not just five! I won't be buying another one as this is the second pure radio I've had problems with… Read Full Review

“Blue Screen Of Death after 6 years”

Written on: 04/12/2011

3 years old kept 'getting time' upgraded firmware (but only worked with XP PROFESSIONAL ON AN INTEL MOTHERBOARD all other OS and MOBO's failed also seemed to need usb 1.1 not usb 2.0) prob solved..........eventually . 5 years old screen lights up but no characters that's it. Power supply is putting out 18V not the 14.4 it says it should...maybe this has failed and fried it . Looks like I have a beech paperweight. Features were fine and sound was good however both these features are no… Read Full Review

“I woke up one morning and it was dead!”

Written on: 19/11/2011

Upgrade treat for me - I found it a bit complicated to set up but I'm not technical. The last thing I expected was for it to expire after 4-5 years. Meanwhile I'm back to listening to my old clock radio purchased for about £10 from Argos over 17 years ago. Progress!!!!?… Read Full Review

“LCD so dim can't read it”

Written on: 10/08/2011

LCD so dim it can't be read so although the set still works it's about as much use as chocolate teapot!! Pure do not supply spares and won't consider repairing - so they say chuck it and buy another one from them - haha!! So if you are thinking of buying a Pure product bear this in mind. It's a shame 'cos the set is good otherwise… Read Full Review

“I have exactly the same problem that many others seem...”

Written on: 16/11/2009 by tcsr205 (21 reviews written)

I have exactly the same problem that many others seem to have. About 50% of the time, when I turn the radio on, it has lost all of its stations and presets. When this happens, and it happens a lot, I have to sit through a 2 minute auto tuning process before then having to manually tune in to the chanel I want. I don't even bother storing presets anymore because they will be gone the next day. Very poor… Read Full Review

“I've had the Tempus 1XT for justover 2 years and there...”

Written on: 27/10/2009 by purlfrost (2 reviews written)

I've had the Tempus 1XT for justover 2 years and there now appears to be several issues with it, which makes it less than useless. It retunes itself, fails to come on at the set alarm time, loses all the radio settings. Very disappointing for a £100.00 radio. Problem is that I also have a Pure Move, which has also failed, but luckely under warranty. I therefore strongly question the build quality from this brand. They've offered me a £60.00 replacement for the Tempus. I told them it would be… Read Full Review

When the radio was new I was very pleased with it. But I moved out of London and where I am now other DAB radios can still pick up LBC but this one cannot… Read Full Review
