I love(d) it, for all of 4 years then it died last week. It won't fire up at all on mains power, which we have isolated to a problem within the radio rather than the power lead. It does seem to be running OK on battery (until that dies, given I have no way of recharging it).
Reading other Pure reviews, I've got exactly the same shabby treatment from Pure - no possibility for repair, and the the offer to buy a replacement direct from Pure at what they call a 'substantial' discount - £76! This is only marginally lower than the current price on Amazon and I'm sure makes them more money than if they sold via a retailer.
What a con. By any reckoning a radio should last for more than 4 years - I would certainly expect better from a premium priced product -and would be a fool to throw more money at something that has proved so unreliable.

It has its drawbacks, but this Panasonic is easy to live with and has an insightful and dynamic picture performance – it’s a great set
