Phil, Gwent

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Good freeview reception (we live in a fringe area), easy to use (remote control works the TV and the DVDR), and high quality recordings.
Bad points:
Having to switch the machine off with a special button on the remote in order to enable timer controlled recording, not being told when setting the timer that there isn't enough space left on the disc, and a programme guide that is really there to enable you to set up timer controlled recordings rather than to review channel content (for example, if a programme has already started you can't always select TV from the guide, as trying to do so sometimes starts the recorder).

Confirmed purchaser

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Simple to set up and use. Highly clear menus and quick execution of recording set up and replay. So far, a reliable and quality product for the money.
Bad points:
Handbook could be more explicit and should contain more information about the different types of recordable DVD's that can be used. Also more advice on error messages and fault resolving. Usually best solved by disconnecting and reconnecting power.
