Imagination Technologies Pure Digital Move portable DAB radio
- Compact, portable and can double as a speaker for your MP3 player
- DAB sucks power noticeably faster than regular FM use
The Pure Move has lots going for it: it is very compact and not much larger than a hand span, weighs about twice as much as a mobile phone and can double as a speaker for your MP3 player.
The Pure Move is a portable battery or mains-powered DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting) radio and is made of lightweight aluminium with an attractive grille front. It sits back casually on a flat, U-shaped hinge and serves up crystal clear DAB radio stations without fuss.
There's a sturdy aerial and, where both are available, the Pure Move lets you choose between listening digitally or over FM.
Maker Pure says a full battery charge should see the Pure Move through up to 14 hours of listening, although DAB sucks power noticeably faster than regular FM use. The Pure Move isn't the most feature-packed digital radio, but this is about the best-looking battery-powered model we've seen and is among the lightest.
The Pure Move's volume cranks up higher than you might imagine for such a compact model and the resulting audio is very clean.
Assuming you don't need fancy frills such as being able to act as a speaker for a portable MP3 player or a hard disk or removable media on which to record and playback recorded programmes, the Pure Move is a solid choice.
We took a look at Pure Digital's compact portable DAB radio over the winter and found ourselves favouring it as a music source to listen to while we tapped out copy over an MP3 player.
We've had a look at a couple of other battery-powered DAB radios and reckon the Pure Move is the best of the bunch in terms of practicality, portability and longevity.
As we all know, winter was a total wash-out, but on the few occasions when we were able to venture into the back garden, it was fantastic being able to listen to crystal clear Classic FM and other cut-above radio stations while enjoying a chilled wine and catching up with the Sunday papers.
Not only that, but the Pure Move's auxiliary input means you can make use of its surprisingly loud single speaker to play music from other sources such as an iPod. It can connect up to a hi-fi for the same purpose, so even if you're not in the mood for idle banter on the radio, you can enjoy your own music collection.
Once you've had enough of chilling out to Chill or head-banging along with Kerrang!, the Pure Move's telescopic aerial can be clipped back into the groove on top of Move and the rubberised but sturdy stand stashed back into its recess round the back.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
I rate the printer as a 5 out of 5 stars as it has been able to fit seamlessly into my busy and mobile lifestyle.
It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
