Looks good. Only realistically priced recorder with dvd burning. Better menu layout than older models.

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.
