Ian, Home cinema enthusiast

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Reviewer left no comment
Bad points:
Some programmes it refuses to record.
Some that you record to the hard drives cannot be edited before copying.
It only has one HDMI port which is simply insufficient.
I'm fairly sure that a film I recorded was wiped by the drive when I had not watched it within 7 days.

My hard drive recorder from 10 years ago was far superior to this.

Irene, High Peak I make use of

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Relatively easy to use. Sound and vision good
Bad points:
I found recent models have no Scart connection which has meant I cannot connect to my Sky box. I find the Freeview recordings not as easy to set up and cancel as Sky although they record well. Very disappointed.
