Good points:
Fantastic PVR - best on market for the price
Bad points:
Don't forget there's only one tuner though - if you want to record and watch two different channels - you need to pay more for two tuners!

Stan, High Wycombe

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
We like the menu driven interface and the quality of the mpeg streamed straight on and off the disc. We were pleased to get it a good deal as I'm sure we will need to replace it when HDTV is more available. We have got 2 off them in fact so I think that says it all.
Bad points:
Sometimes you need to rebooot it when you feel you shouldnt have to, Jane runs it more than me but I seem to recall it's after you have watched one recorded program and want to go to another.

Paul, Manchester

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Worked striaght out of the box, no problems so far. The guide makes recording v easy - no more entering start/stop times. All the old vhs tapes are now in the bin!!
Bad points:
Only minor niggle is that once whilst watching a recorded program it suddenly did an 'update' so we had to re start the program & ff to where we had got up to.
