Score 7.0/10
Good points:
I've only had the product for a week but most things seem to be in working order. the recording function is great, just one touch of a button et voila! haven't tested most of the other functions yet but so far so good! oh, and it looks pretty too!
Bad points:
very slow when changing channel (about 4 to 5 seconds of blank screen inbetween), the tv guide is unpredictable - left the device in standby mode the day i set it up and when i turned it on most of the channel listings were there. however, since then (bearing in mind that was only a few days ago!) the whole channel listing has disappeared!! and i didn't even switch it off! very odd!?! there's no 'last channel' button so you can't flick between 2 programs. slightly disappointing that you can't copy pictures straight from your mobile phone onto the hard drive, or even look at them using a usb adaptor, and also that you can't change channels when you're recording something. but then again you get what you pay for i guess!

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
*The only line of recorders on the market which allow you to record 5.1 sound - however, they cant be written to DVD and will only save as stereo if burned to a DVD.
*An excellent upscaler of normal DVDs.
*Looks very smart.
Bad points:
*Slow to react occasionally.
*Not being able to burn 5.1 sound onto DVD.
*Cannot simply store a DVD on your hard drive, original or home made holiday videos.
*Limited editing options.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Only had it a couple of weeks so still getting used to it, overall though very good. First HDD like this (have sky plus) been good to transfer some of my older recordings off the sky box to this, freeing up space.
Bad points:
slow to start up and move between HDD to USB etc. Needs to be on if watching sky as the picture quality has dropped. Bit of a time delay in broadcast now so if it's on in the lounge and someone is watching in the kitchen the sound delay can be annoying. but I can live with that!!!
