Gary, Preston I like cool stuff!

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
It a fantastic piece of kit. I have been using PVR's for over decade and this device has been designed to be very user friendly and easy to understand and set up. The facility to look back in time on your on your programme guide and click on ones you've missed (that are available on catch up TV) feels like witchcraft - amazing! It all works brilliantly well from your own TV (and Humax box) so no need for a computer or any other device to watch your catch up TV from now on. Apparently around 20% of us now watch our TV on catch up services and I predict YouView will massively increase this percentage. This is a brilliant device so get one now - you won't regret it.
Bad points:
It doesn't handle scheduled programme recording conflicts all that well.

I get lost in the menu system sometimes.

It's not cheap (but it is still good value).

Good points:
When you already have 2 simultaneous recordings scheduled and you request a 3rd recording that overlaps, it asks you if you would like to record the 3rd item from another time that it is broadcast - neat.
Bad points:
There is no single key from the remote control that takes you into the TV guide - one of the most commonly used keys

James, Guildford

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Very easy to setup, nice menu system, finally all catchup TV actually on your TV, No subscription.
Bad points:
Streaming in HD can occasionally pause to buffer (fine in SD with 10Mb Virgin Media). Remote makes an annoying clicking sound every time you press a button. Remote doesn't 'properly' control TV volume.
