John, Corsham

Score 2.0/10
Good points:
Reviewer left no comment
Bad points:
Extremely difficult to use. I followed the instruction manual exactly and still have had to call Samsung support twice. They even sent a repairman out and he was baffled.
Also, the hard disk sometimes freezes while playing back and I have to fast-forward for a few seconds. It does this several times during a program and really detracts from what I am watching.

Albert , Blantyre, Glasgow

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Easy connections via HTMI cable.
Bad points:
Slow to start up with anynet button command from TV. Slow fast froward when playning from either the hard disk or a DVD. Other makes seem to be able tovary spedd by pressing button several times but cannot do that on this model. I have experienced problems with making timer recordings, despite the red clock coming up against a programme to be recorded, the programme does not always record. Because of these difficulties I would not recommend others to purchase this model. My wife cannot use it at all, she finds it far too complicated compared with the much cheaper Grundig hard disk recorder that we use on our other television.

Ian, Stratford-upon-Avon

Score 2.0/10
Good points:
Attractive appearance
Bad points:
Thought that coupled to a Samsung tv would be easy to use. Still havent worked out how to work it despite several calls to Samsung help line. (I have an engineering degree from Cambridge so I dont think its me being a thicko!)
