Mike, Strathaven

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good size, slim and not too wide. Good user controls. Plain front, not tacky with loads of chromed bits.Handset is easy to use. EPG is straigtforward to access. Recording is easy and the library of recordings is easy to use.
Bad points:
Hard drive sometimes throws a wobbly, but it sorts itself out. When fast fwd or backward, then press play, the sound mutes, so you have to touch the vol up/down button to restore sound ( a minor niggle)

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Simple to use.
Bad points:
Not a 'real' twin tuner PVR - the fault isn't with the tuners themselves, it's with the disk which (unlike other models available) can't seem to do two things at once. Other models can record 2 channels while you're playing back a recording from the HDD - all simultaneously. With the Evesham, if you're recording something, you can't then record something else (you can't even pause the live channel). Overall, disappointing due to its limitations.

Easy to set up only too me 15 mins and I am a bit of a technophobe.The front

Bad points:
No slot for top-up tv,but at the price I can't grumble
