seb, london tech savvy

Score 2.0/10
Good points:
Freeview receiver pretty strong.
Bad points:
Very poor control system, i.e. tiny buttons for the functions you use the most such as the guide.
Pausing live TV takes about 5 button presses and is not automatically done.
You need to have the machine turned off for it to record anything.
So basically the PVR functionalilty is a real pain to use.

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Extensive versitility, portable between locations, brochure was reasonably explanitory
Bad points:
This equipment has many functions and is therefore complicated to use, it should have been simplified
Hard drive recording proves to have faults in playback ie every few minutes a pause and then it catches up again.

Jim, Chesterfield

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Clean and simple looking design - aesthetically pleasing. Reasonably simple controls The manual is concise and understandable. It does what it says on the box
Bad points:
The controller is too small with legends that are only just readable - All paper documentation should be in 14 pitch ariel at least with no odd colour combinations. A CD / DVD version of the documentation viewed through the TV would be useful.
