Les, Middlesbrough not an anorak

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Quality and clarity of reproductions, seems reliable
Bad points:
Some menu points can be long winded. also, having to disable some function to get others that seem unrelated.
not that easy to use at first, but gets easier with familiarity. can be slow to start up so don't rush to record as program starts
