Kevin, Berkshire AverageGuyWhoWantsToRecordTVtoHDDandDVD

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Works really well once you work out the cryptic instructions. Can hold a lot of media on the HDD. Copies DVDs that work really well. Looks impressive ;-)
Bad points:
Written instructions are not comprehensive - I managed to find the options to copy media to DVDs and vice versa by searching the menus. Has a lot of "quirks" - interupts what you are watching to tell you what's about to be recorded - why?! And cannot record more than 1 program at a time - cheaper models without DVD drive could do this.

Virginia, Ferring

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
none. not fit for purpose
Bad points:
Had to be exchanged for a later model within 3 days of purchase due to inadequacy of manufacture/design or fault with input (call it what you like). The unit needed to be totally disconnected and reconnected each day in order to use it.

Paul, Perthshire Nothing

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Quality of recordings as good as watching live TV. The ability to timeshift (pause live TV when interrupted and then catch up, or to watch a recording from the beginning whilst the programme is still being broadcast) is superb. Value for money is excellent.
Bad points:
Probably none in the long run, but difficult to learn how to operate all the features at first and we did get "stuck" in certain features and had difficulty in taking back control from the machine.

Donald, bexley kent Film lover

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
nice looking and slim ,like the idea of the red light in the centre that comes on in certain procedures .operation points have been made easier and it is easier to erase what you do not want .
Bad points:
i cannot honestly say that i have found a bad point , i had a previous lg hdd recorder and i was pleased with that one ,the only reason i got rid of it was because of the change over and i had it for six years without any trouble.

Andrew, London Bargain hunter

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
See above.
Bad points:
Remote doesn't have Channel Select rocker switches. buttons quite small for people with large hands like me.
Videoplus would have been nice, but EPG is the substitute. Guess I'll get used to it.
Instruction manual not the best; some parts confusing, and some stages left out or unexplained.
But all in all. certainly a worthwhile buy.
