Dual tuner; recorder; good quality; easy to use and set up; one button record; on-line guide;
Bad points:
Can't pause TV whilst recording; doesn't automatically keep 30 minutes of the chanel you're watching (so no "realtime" rewind. Be careful when watching paused TV - hit the stop button and its all gone!
