Excerpt: I bought this DVD Recorder with built in Free-view from Littlewoods for £149 on buy now pay later. It is a smart looking player/recorder and it only took 10 minutes to set up and install all the digital/free-view channels. I have recorded on DVD -R, DVD -RW, DVD +R, DVD +RW without any problems.

Excerpt: If you are in the market for a no nonsense dvd recorder, this model should be seriously considered. It does all the things described in the listing above. It is easy to set up, and I particularly like the transparent menus.
Excerpt: Went from a Samsung to this model and this is a giant leap in comparison. Clear pictures, easy recording, freeview no problems, lets me plug in a usb stick (!!!!!!!!!!!!!). Great stuff for the price. I found the negative reviews here slightly fair - its not for advanced users.

Excerpt: The nice thing about this recorder is it records on both + and - DVD formats so you dont have to worry about getting the right blank DVDs. It can also record to +DL disks if you need extra recording time and in the box there is a SCART lead which most manufacturers leave out.
