Advantages: Very easy to use
Disadvantages: Battery consumption
I bought this product a couple of years ago and I am still very pleased with it. The sound quality is excellent considering the price of the product - it is a very clear sound and the speaker can also handle playing music at high volume without any crackling or distortion.
The radio, whilst being extremely easy to use, has a host of features such as pre-set buttons to store your favourite stations (20 pre-sets on the model I have) and a sleep timer so you can set it to turn off automatically when you want, between 15 and 90 minutes - a great feature as you can listen to music in bed without worrying about wasting electricity overnight.
The only drawback I would mention is that it takes 6 x 'C' size batteries, which can get expensive if you use the radio a lot - I tend to always plug it into the mains so not a problem but something to think about if you want it to be truly portable. If you are not planning on using the mains cable I would definitely use rechargeably batteries, or invest in the Pure 'battery pack'.
However on the whole I would definitely recommend this product - good value, good features and good sound quality.
Summary: Excellent product
