This machine keeps failing and cancelling out your recordings which defeats the purpose of buying it in the first place.
Waste of money.

Bad points:
remote control is sometimes hard to use the buttons are not sensitive enough to make using the handset easy. any body with dexterity problems should not buy this product. the reciever does not always respond to the remote control which can be frustrating.

Aitken, Northwich

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use and value for money.
Bad points:
Initially we had an issue with the unit because the red light did not come on when you switched the unit off. A replacement unit did the same thing. As the colour of the indicator light does not change you never know if the unit is on or off. Apparently this is part of the design but it is not mentioned in the instructions.

Jerry , Dartford

Score 2.0/10
Good points:
Easy to record
Bad points:
After setting the box to record the rugby world cup opening ceremony, the opening match, all of Sat games and all of Sun games, F1 Quali and the F1 race, only 3 mins of the opening ceremony has recorded, F1 qualify didn't record, the England v Argentina match didn't record (not happy), one of the Sunday matches shows as 'must record' but it didn't and is still in red and various other matches are only partial record. I followed the instruction manual fully but this is what has happened - 1/3 not recorded properly or at all. Compared to my previous (which had move forward scene by scene and up to 64 x normal speed) this appears to be very basic in comparison. I therefore want my money back and I'll buy an alternative.
