Confirmed purchase: 20 Jul 2011

Confirmed purchaser Bargain hunter

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Networking via WiFi works well (incl. BBC iPlayer, YouTube & access to music and video on connected PC's)

Tidy looks

Very good picture quality from DVD, HDD and built-in Freeview HD tuners.

Cheap

Haven’t used Bluray or 3D functions.
Bad points:
Doesn't work properly:

Refuses to turn off.

Sometimes the HR650 continues to record well after program selected for recording has finished (2+ hour over-run needed manual intervention to stop recording).

Sometimes shuts down then immediately restarts for no apparent reason (did this after I stopped a recording that was over-running by 20mins. and it lost the recording).

Networking connection wizard stalled several times during configuration.

Requires repeated factory resets to solve some problems but it is only a temporary fix. Factory reset looses network connection settings therefore need to be re-done.

User interface/operating system should be better:

A pop-up asks if you want to record a programme that you've just set up to record.

Takes 8 button presses to delete a recorded program after watching.

PVR controls generally very sluggish.

Selecting a program to record from the program guide is not well thought out. Many on-screen menu and pop-up icons are sized for a large screen (i.e. too small to see on a smaller screen (sub 28”), unless you're sitting close.

Some on-screen icons not clear enough due to small size and poor foreground/background colour choices, e.g. recording symbol shown on program guide and at change of TV channel is barely visible.

Contributors are asked to rate the product in six categories, which I have, but it's hard to rate a product that doesn't work properly, e.g. great picture quality isn't much use if the box fails to record the requested program.
