It does 'pause' well; once the channels are understood, it works well

Kathryn, Kenilworth

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy to set up and use. Menus are very user friendly and system intuitive. 80Gb is perfectly adequate for storing lots of films and other programmes to watch and delete or to dub to DVD.
Bad points:
System slow to power up. When opening DVD drawer the system will not let you do anything else until the drawer is shut again which can be a little frustrating/time-wasting but is perfectlly livable with.

Ian, Weymouth

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The hard drive is well worth having.
On-screen menus are easy to use. This was our first DVD after a video and it is so much ebetter and easier. it was not a problem to transfer videos.
Bad points:
It takes time to set up, especially checking tuning for getting best reception stations, but worth the effort. For some reason it does nort always record from the satellite channel (Line 3) when this is set on Autoview for chosen programme.

CK, Stoke

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The sony RDRHX510S DVDR has good editing features that makes life easier when piecing together a series of programmes recorded.

It is easy on the eye as it seems slimmer than most dvd recorders.
Bad points:
There is no direct link from a digital camera like a usb socket.
