    By 20 January 2014

    When the Pure Jongo S3 arrived in the office we didn't quite get the point at first. A battery powered Bluetooth speaker is always handy, but we'd seen enough to know that if we're going to get on with them, they need to have a unique selling point. Where...

    Pure Avalon 300R Connect review

    By 2 March 2013

    Selling your very first Freeview set-top-box in 2012 is the move of either a company that knows what it's doing, or the move of a company so adept at missing the boat that it has evolved into a fish to avoid further boat-missing agony. The Pure Avalon...

    By 20 September 2012

    With YouView arguably landing with a plop. rather than then splash LordSirAlanSugar would have liked, the set-top-box arena still has plenty to play for. So, with that in mind, Pure is stepping out of its radio comfort zone, and into making Freeview PVRs....

    By 11 January 2012

    We at Pocket-lint are big fans of Pure and its ever-growing range of DAB and internet radios. But the Pure Sensia, so long the flagship of the range, left a slightly sour taste in our mouth. It wasn't that we didn't like the Sensia. We loved it in fact....
