A lovely DVD recorder with 160 Gigabytes to play with!

Not a digital conversion kit or a set top box, but a great addition to an existing digital set-up

  • Excerpt: I have read through Nibelung's review of this Sony machine and he does make some valid points about it. I also own this DVD recorder/hard drive/freeview tuner and I have to say that it is an absolutely superb piece of kit.

  • Excerpt: I bought this dvd recorder about seven or eight months ago. I'm a bit of a sony fan, and prior to buying this model, I owned a previous model which didn't have a hard disc drive. I thought this would be a cheap alternative to sky plus.

Good if you don't have Freeview, but better if you already have it with your TV.

  • Excerpt: This is a great recorder if you already have Freeview with your Tv or a set top box. That will make it possible to watch a Freeview channel on your Tv while recording a different Freeview channel on the DVD.

  • Excerpt: Ive recently bought a whole string of new Audio and Video kit. This Sony box is by far the best of the lot!! It does everything with relative ease. Picking a program out of the EPG to record is easy, and adding series link isnt much harder either.

  • Excerpt: Previously we purchased a similar Samsung unit which, whilst slow to start up and at times fiddly to use was a whole different ballgame from the old world of VHS! Encouraged by this, and lacking Sky or a Freeview box in our bedroom I bought one of these and wow!

  • Excerpt: My parents recently bought this device to go with their Bravia LCD TV (which, by the way, is excellent). We simply could not set it up properly. Im an engineer by training, and even I couldnt figure it out! This blasted piece of kit foxed my father, brother-in-law, neighbours and friends.
