Byron, Reading

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Works really well, good signal etc. Recordings look good.
Bad points:
Has to plug into the front of the ps3 so you can always see the usb sticking out, this will probably not annoy you but it annoys me! This is more of a PS3 issue though.

nigel, coventry like the thing

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
it does exactly what it promises and more.
Love the recording facility and that it is so compatible with the PS3
I like the fact you can scroll down pages which include discriptive comment whilst being able to watch current programme and also being able to jump between 2 programmes
Bad points:
poor design to put aerial socket on the front and also to have to hook it to a front usb on PS3 it should be made more discrete perhaps a plug in would be better suited.

L. Williams , WARRINGTON

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
It worked straight from the box as soon as you loaded the disc it updates onto the hard drive then your away. all the channels are there on free view and i have just received a free patch for BBC I Player which is just as easy to work. I would recommend getting the Sony remote with this . . if like me you record a lot of TV or watch Blue Ray Films Its easy to work and has the benefit or sires link and search mode and 7 day preview. I like it a lot, and would recommend it. I can not wait for the next free patch whitch is H.D Channels
Bad points:
Like everything it has a negative and that is it needs a USB port and if like me you have the slim model with only two USBs then one is Always in use. Sony should have put two of them at the front and two at the back. Also its a bit slow to start up as it has to load from the hard drive i think. it takes about 7 seconds to to switch it on. but if recording it will turn itself on and off. unless you are watching another channel on it. which is a PLUS.
