Advantages: Feature packed/Great appearance/Superb sound considering speaker size
Disadvantages: Plastic centre button doesn't operate as well as it should
- Does it 'bug' you when you miss your favourite program on the radio?
- Do you sometimes which that you could simply rewind the radio to hear the phone number from that competition?
- Do you want to hear DAB radio in crystal clear quality?
The Bug will definitely not let you down!
- Appearance -
The Bug is available in White, Grey and Black. I personally chose the white version which is extremely attractive. I have not seen any other DAB radio which is so creatively designed and looks so futuristic. The designers were without doubt some very humorous people. Switch on the radio for example and watch how 2 eyes pop up on the device which move and blink!
The display can be positioned in any way thanks to the movable neck and the two speakers on either side produce brilliant sound for their size.
- Usage -
Considering the number of features this radio packs it is very easy to use. We were so impressed with the product that my dad purchased one for my grandpa who could also operate the radio (Of course their were some problems!)
Stations are selected using the circle rocker wheel in the middle which acts as a button when you want to select the station in the list. There are also 6 very handy preset buttons located around the display so you can select your favourite stations with ease.
Always miss the sleep button on those early morning wake-ups? The large silver sleep button on the front means that this will never happen again! The record button is also easy to operate and any recordings can be saved to an inserted SD card - These can be purchased on eBay quite cheaply.
When the radio is turned off the display turns into a digital clock and the display light can be dimmed if it stops you from sleeping - Which it has stopped me in the past.
After an update which was easy to do via USB cable and my computer the product now includes an EPG meaning that you can browse radio shows which are coming up on different stations. - A great feature!
- Disadvantages -
I have come across one problem with this radio, but they really wouldn't stop me purchasing another of these radios:
The circle rocker button feels very 'plasticy' and it can sometimes be difficult to press the button in when you want to select a station.
- Conclusion -
I was recently looking for a similar product as I was disappointed to find that it had become very difficult to find another "Bug". - I am amazed to find that Pure have discontinued this product. They can however be found on eBay. I feel that this product is an amazing product especially considering it wasn't as expensive as some of the modern DAB radios which have fewer features.
My verdict: This DAB radio is ahead of the pack in terms of features and looks. Great product Pure - Bring back The Bug!
Summary: This DAB radio is ahead of the pack in terms of features and looks.
