Score 9.0/10
Good points:
HUge amount of storage. Easy to do timed recordings but I can't seem to programme repetative programming even though the series I want to record is shown as a 'series' it won't do it. However, I am very old and it is probably operator error.

Marnie, Streatham Film lover

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Sleek design,easy to program well in advance
Bad points:
If you record through the 'Guide' button,it doesn't seem to shut down properly and therefore makes quite a bit of noise. Not great when it's in your bedroom! However, recording through the Timer function seems to eradicate this but it did take a few sleepless nights to figure it out!
