Darren, Nottingham Multi-purpose viewer

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Great picture and sound quality including HD channels.
Inbuilt wireless and smart hub.
Quality of picture through smart hub is also good
Bad points:
It has good potential but a few points let it down - it does not rival Virgin's Tivo or the Sky+HD boxes.
The remote control and some of the menus are a little complicated.
It's a shame that only one channel can be recorded at a time (including pausing another channel).
The online features cannot be used when recording.
The smart hub would benefit from having 4OD and ITV player etc rather than just the BBC I Player.

Nice looking design on the outside

Not the least bit intuitive to use, menus are awkward to navigate and my box gave me loads of problems connecting to the internet.

David, Shoreham by Sea Film and documentary lover

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Nice appearance. Does the job. So far very pleased with the
purchase after getting used to the remote control.
Picture and sound fine and recording quality.
Bad points:
Hi Def. picture ok but sound could be better but that is probably
the fault of the broadcast. i.e. dialogue.
