Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Menus are easy to use as is the guide+ for selecting TV programmes to record. Silent in use.
Bad points:
Use with a camcorder gave various problems which required resetting. Does not allow connecting an external hardisk and does not allow copying video files to the USB port (even if they come from a camcorder). Fairly slow startup.

Bad points:
The clock is very strange as it stays at the time you have closed the DVD player for a very long time and then starts moving. It is NEVER at the correct time and the manual is not very good at explaining how to rectify this problem. Another problem is that I wanted to record directly on to disc but it appears I cannot do this and you have to record to the hard drive then to disc. This is extremely annoying
