Confirmed purchaser

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
We purchased this after purchasing several other boxes. It is a nice box and small however the plastic does look a bit cheap so therefore would give it a 8/10 for rating for quality - design. The picture quality is exceptionally good with no signs of ghosting, not grainy at all unlike the Goodmans which we returned yesterday. The menu and software is modern and up to date and is easy to interact with. The only downside is that if you rush it, it will crash. It also shows what programme you are watching scrolling across the led display on the front of the box.

The only HD channels available at the moment is BBC1, ITV and C4 and BBC. We use a HDMI cable and our T.V is a HD ready with 720 pixel resolution.

Overall good box and good value for money.
Bad points:
Lack of HD channels with high price tag just for specifically being HD, quality and build, freezes if you try to rush it.

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Very good recording options including 2 program record facility.
Very quiet while recording i.e. no disc noise.
Bad points:
The remote control cannot be set up to operate the Volume and Mute for my Panasonic Plasma TV so 2 remote controls are needed. Toshiba has not offered a solution.

ROB, Barnsley Film lover

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
recordings 98% of the time start exactly at the beginning. for some reason only the gadget show begins after the credits. it doesn't have claim a time slip feature but you can time slip.
nice guide
Bad points:
slow to start up, unless already recording.
not so good when 3 recordings clash; ie; 2 recordings about to start and one to finish. it has locked up twice.
