And you constantly see faulty ones on eBay!
I think you'll probably find faulty versions of everything on eBay - this is what people do when something that's a long time out of it's warranty goes kaput. It's an indication that, at some point, all electrical items fail - nothing more sinister than that.
My Pure Move, in its neat red fake leather case, is brill!
Especially as it strongly reminds me of the very first radio I owned at 13.

Shall we change the title to "Buy Pure Radios!"?

We have two Pure ONE Mini Compact DAB/FM radios which are in constant daily use, and are excellent. We have had them for a couple of years now. My wife and I also have a Pure Pocket DAB 1500 each, and they are also used nearly everyday. I use mine out walking the dog, and is brilliant!
Too late, should I send mine back?!
He's not a diamond geezer, or called Joe!
As chebby says, you can't really compare them at this stage.
How old is "quite a few" anyway? Your original post suggested they were barely out of warranty, but quite a few to me suggests 4 or 5 years. There's no way I'd expect Pure to replace my radio free of charge after that amount of time - it only cost £80 or something!
Yep, they were about 4 or 5 years old, and my Roberts are getting on that now too.
Here are the faulty ones on eBay, they were the two I had!
Main AV Setup: Panasonic 50VT65 TV, Pioneer Bdp-lx71, Pioneer Vsx-lx70, B&W FPM Series, B&W PV1, Optimum AV300 AV Stand, QED Silver Anniversary XT Speaker Cable & Chord Silver Plus HDMI Cables. Gadgets: iPad Air & iPhone 4S.
Well we've had a Pure Evoke 1 since not long after they came out and had no problems with it.
According to Which - Pure scored 96-97% in reliability surveys (think it varies with which survey), which seems to imply that a lot of people think they're fairly reliable.
Hi Fi: Arcam A85, DV88 (CD only), Project Debut II, Sonos ZP90, AE Compact-1. AV: Arcam AVR250, DV79, Sony BDP-S760, Monitor Audio Silver 8i, RS-LCR, RXFX, Sonos ZP90, Pioneer KRP500A. 2nd AV: Pioneer SX-SWR2, Dell Zino HD, KEF KHT2005.2 eggs, Sonos ZP90. Cables: That Cable HDMI, Chord Crimsons, CAT6 backbone Sonos S5s in the bedrooms
So that's two of each that are faulty...
No way, I can't believe that!
Here you go, this is what I am talking about:

So you started a thread to slag off a product you haven't owned for 4 or 5 years? How ARE the new meds working Gel?
No signature worth mentioning...
So there's a firmware fix?
On the newer ones, not the older ones, and look at the grief!
