Great product, available at a good price now

  • Excerpt: I purchased the Humax 9200T PVR (Personal Video Recorder) about two years ago, for the bargain price of £160, online. It's revolutionised TV watching, it's been so useful to be able to record programmes and watch them when you fancy, and to rapidly fast forward through adverts, or pause when the phone or doorbell goes.
  • Pros: Reliability

Bit of an old model now but still very useful

  • Excerpt: On a whole this is an excellent PVR set top box. It works very reliably and records a large number of data. I think it is quoted as being able to record around 30 hours of stuff which isn't too bad, however by todays standards the hard drives are a little larger now. This isn't too much of a problem if like me, you record something then when you've watched it you simply delete it, however if you want to keep stuff you rapidly begin to run short on space!

  • Summary: Worked like a dream when new, but over last year the unit freezes and will not allow any changes to channel selection, preset recordings don't always take place, or unit keeps recording on one channel all night long. When unit is working the time to change channels gets longer as time goes by. Humax know of problem, but first software change did work. They are trialling new software with some customers but does not look like a fix is coming anytime soon.
  • Pros: being able to record 2 channels and watch 3rd (depending on channel)
  • Cons: has become almost unuseable with age

It's a good box, but it's certainly not finished. Think of it like a beta.

  • Excerpt: We bought the PVR 9200T, essentially, as it had been recommended by The Gadget Show on Five (who generally know what they're talking about). Unfortunately though, the box hasn't quite lived up to its reputation. First, the good points. The picture quality is actually very good. I think it's noticeably better than my Digifusion box, and actually as good as the inbuilt tuner in my Sony TV. The remote is of a good quality and is very easy to use.

Great VCR replacement. There must be better options today.

  • Excerpt: First of all, let me say that at the time it was bought, this was reviewed as one of the best set-top boxes out there. And when you're coming from a VCR, it really does work like magic. The EPG allows you to record programs without worrying about programming times, and the dual tuner lets you record and watch at the same time.

A great machine when it works, sadly fails too often

  • Excerpt: I bought this on a recommendation. I also recommended the machine to someone else. So we are talking three machines here. The one belonging to my friend who recommended it. The one I bought. The one belonging to the friend who I recommended it to. One has been back for repair. Ultimately, all three have been returned for exchange. These were all bought from John Lewis.

Humax 9200TB Freeview PVR

Deru, Dooyoo

  • Excerpt: HUMAX 9200TB I had previously been using my PC's TV card to watch and record Freeview programmes but in order to schedule recordings, I had to leave my PC on all the time, which I don't like doing. To combat this, I decided to get the Humax 9200TB Freeview PVR (Personal Video Recorder).

A great replacement for the VCR

  • Excerpt: I have used the PVR for 3 years now and it is an amazing PVR for recording from Freeview. The features on it are excellent. You can record 2 programmes at the same time and watch a recorded one, or record one programme and carry on watching live TV. The box has series link so you will never need to miss a programme again and can record TV and radio.

  • Summary: Having battled with a Thomson PVR, I guess that any product that actually works without hassle would please me. Intuitive to use, does exactly what it should - a pleasure to own.
  • Pros: Easy to plug in and go.
  • Cons: Nothing much

  • Summary: Fairly easy to operate after initial learning curve.Edit function is good where you can select a portion of a recording to keep & then delete the rest of the recording thus saving hard disc space.
  • Pros: Picture quality,reliability.
  • Cons: Remote could be laid-out better & is a bit big.
