Summary: This product has failed on so many levels. It freezes when you bring up the TV guide and regularly fails to record on every occasion even when you have selected "Series Record" I wish I'd stuck with the panasonic brand I had previously. What a waste of money.
Summary: I've been quite disappointed by this device considering the price. We had a very cheap PVR that failed after 3 years of constant use previously. We bought this because we also needed a blu-ray player and we already had a non-smart Samsung TV. Compared to the Sony devices my family have the menus and smart functionality is much easier to use. However I feel there are some fundamental issues in the way this works.

Summary: The player arrived two days early opened it up plugged it in and it set up very quickly no problems tried the blue-ray brill recordings brill wifi easy to set up brill smart all apps loaded up brill used to have 2 boxes which this does that now so love it would highly recommend to my friends and family.
Summary: Other reviewers have had some mixed ideas about this machine. It plays almost every disc is WiFi enabled it records easily what else would you need. One person said they could not delete while it's recording, Well this is not a problem, After all this is not a computer it's extremely good for what it was made for.
Summary: Well, I'm shocked at many of the review comments and nearly didn't purchase this but am so glad I went with it. It's extremely easy to use, very intuitive & recording is straightforward from the guide, prompting to series link where appropriate. Recorded programs can be viewed seamlessly and as we have our NAS drive linked, we have easy access to photos, music library, videos etc.
