Pure Fi review is Pure BS
I upgraded to Pure Fi from Logitech's earlier speaker, a model that had already earned accolades on several iPod sites. The Pure Fi improves on the original in every respect. It's louder; the bass is a bit stronger; for slim traveling, the AC power adapter can now be stored in the iPod slot (neat!); and it's beautiful, especially in black.
I agree, though, that the Pure Fi turns itself off or goes into sleep mode after too short an interval. It needs a good 5+ seconds to wake up.
I don't even own an iPod, yet I use my Pure Fi at work. When I go to a presentation, I take it with me, together with a mini-to-mini cord. If the presenter's laptop can't connect properly to the loudspeaker, I plug in the Logitech and become the hero. I also use it when running a booth at conferences.
One of my clients at work liked mine so much, she ordered one, too.
