Score 2.0/10
Good points:
Easy to setup and use
Bad points:
The menu's are slow, the unit keeps hanging and needs resetting which is not any good when you set it up to record. It a good spec but doesn't work and isn't worth it, I returned mine after the first weekend of trying to use it.

Sue, Chichester

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
It does what it is supposed to; it records up to two programmes at the same time, while a pre recorded one can be watched. The fast forward function is really good.
Bad points:
I found mine a little unreliable and it takes a while to wake up. The library is awkward to navigate through as it lists all scheduled programmes first. The picture quality is not brilliant.

Robert, London Stuff should work.

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
It occasionally recorded what I had programmed.
Bad points:
It often did not. It froze and after 2 months would not get past its initiation process. A piece of junk. It was not cheap and the money would have been as well spent fuelling a barbecue.

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
easy to use and set up
Bad points:
When recording scheduled doesn't come if in standby mode. Tends to "boot" quite a lot when 1st turned on. Delay when remote buttons pressed, sometimes pauses for a short delay or you have to press control on remote again.

Lisa, Cumbria

Score 2.0/10
Good points:
Not alot
Bad points:
i don't know if it's just a fault with my product but i put programmes on seris link and at least twice a week when you knock it back on from stand by it auto scans and i lose all the prgrammes i've set to record, so you have to set them all up again which is extemely annoying!! it can also be slow when looking through the programme guide and can just crash when your in the middle of watching something!
