Good: Looks, sound
Bad: Faux leather not fit for purpose, weak plastics, no battery
Comment: Faux leather finish damaged too easily- within an hour of unpacking it the corners were scuffed, exposing the cream backing. Ugly and unacceptable for an expensive product. I am amazed that more people haven't complained about it. The material used is in my opinion 'not fit for purpose', given it is marketed as portable, which implies a certain degree of ruggedness!
The battery pack is not included, and therefore adds at least another 25% to the purchase price - a nasty sting in the tail.
When the battery is eventually installed, the battery retaining screw breaks because of poor material selection by the manufacturer.
Overall, not worth the money, unless you simply want to look at it when it has been unpacked.
Sorry PURE, but this is simply not good enough, as customers expect quality for this price!
Good: Solid build, simplicity of use
Comment: Just received my brand new Mio this morning, and there is no chargePAK included.
The enclosed literature clearly states, as does the PURE web site, that the chargePAK is an optional extra.
So your information appears to be erroneous in that respect.
Good: Good warm sound. Looks nice if you like that sort of thing. It does have a sleep timer, which isn't obvious from the reviews I looked at.
Bad: Watch out for the ChargePAK. Most of the reviews say it's included as standard. Mine arrived without one.
Comment: Meets all my high expectations except for the missing ChargePAK .
I'm in the process of finding out why it wasn't included. Read your retailer's description carefully.
Good: Totally dependable, excellent quality
Bad: Saving and accessing any more than the first 5 preset stations is confusing
Comment: Very happy with sound quality, reliability, battery life etc. Radio 3 is warmer and richer on FM than DAB, but I suspect you only notice that because of the quality of the speakers.
