Pretty Good Alarm Clock
Logitech makes pretty good systems. Their speakers systems are durable and have pretty good quality. The Pure-Fi Anytime is a pretty standard alarm clock iPhone/iPod docking system.
For an alarm clock one may only expect an alarm and a clock put into one device. Now, think about adding some decently loud speakers, an iPhone, radio, auxiliary input, an LED screen, and a motion sensored backlight, now that’s a product. If you’re looking to fill your whole bedroom with sound, your bathroom with jams or the office with ‘focusing’ music, the Pure-Fi Anytime will accommodate you. It’s not going to blow you over with wind from the speakers, but it offers a loud enough volume and crisp enough sound to be considered ‘Loud’.
It only has a few draw backs compared to other iPhone/iPod Alarm Clocks out there. Mainly the buttons could be easier to see and use, they could reduce the size of the power adapter, and potentially add a little sound dynamic.
On the other hand, if you’re not looking for a top-shelf speaker system, but just want one that works better than an alarm clock, the Pure-Fi Anytime is a great choice. The best thing about this device is it’s simplicity when using the iPod and iPhone. You won’t get confused by the controller, it protects your iPhone/iPod in it’s recessed dock, and you are able to charge your device without worrying about missing a call.
Overall, the Pure-Fi Anytime works well, sounds great, has cool input functionality, and has solid construction. It’s a good system.
Pros and Cons
Protects iPhone/iPod well
AM/FM radio with presets
Buttons could be easier to use
Large power supply
Great all rounder
The features and the display are fantastic.
I previously had a gear4 24h but it was not really suitable as an alarm clock (too bright, minimum volume was too loud and level could not be set for waking up without jumping).
Size is good (and it looks much better than iHome ip9).
Only the sounds is a small let down (when comparing) but it is very good for what this should be used for.
Pros and Cons
-feature rich (2 x "alarm lists", 3 x preset lists, gradual wake up volume,volume set up)
- sound can be turned right down to very low level
- gound sound but...
- finger prints magnet!
logitech pure hi fi radio alarm clock with ipod dock: a very bad product
Do not recommend buying it. A faulty product as it distorts sound. OPity because it looks nice but you have tot up with 5 minutes of distorted sound until it warms up
Pros and Cons
Very good system. Just what I needed.
