  • Excerpt: What can I say, bought this and its awful. Record quality is poor set-up and controls are difficult to get to grips with. It only has a single tuner as well. My advice is buy somethng else.

  • Excerpt: So far we have not been at all impressed with this. It is too hard to operate unless you have a degree in electronics and the instructions are useless. I am thinking of sending it back.

  • Excerpt: Bought this hoping for a simple way to record to a hard drive, series recording, TV pause, rewind etc. The DvD recorder was an extra for keeping things that you wanted, the odd good film and such like as the hard drive would eventually fill up. I have a BT Vision box and it is a pleasure to use. As soon as you change to a channel it begins recording allowing you to rewind all the time. The menus are pleasing to the eye and well laid out.

  • Excerpt: I received mine today and will probably be sending it back. I am reasonably technically minded and fairly competent at reading and understanding English but this has me defeated. I though most things like this were simply plug and play now. I have it set up - after a fashion, but the instructions such as they are seem to pay little attention to the needs of cable subscribers. It is all very fiddly and I have no confidence that anything | set will actually record.

USER UNFRIENDLY MACHINE

  • Excerpt: The Sony 'RDR-HXD890' is both a Freeview Hard Drive recorder, and a DVD recorder, which has a current price of £174.80 from Amazon. The capacity of the hard drive is 160GB, which equates to roughly 23 hours in the high quality recording mode, and 455 hours on the lowest quality setting. The machine is labelled as being 'Freeview+', which means you have the ability to pause and rewind live TV - handy for a quick trip to make a cuppa without missing anything. Sounds good?
