  • 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

  • Pros: Picture quality,reliability.
  • Cons: Remote could be laid-out better & is a bit big.

  • Summary: After running with Sky and a DVD recorder this is fantastic, it is slow in gathering all the programme data but I turn it on before I need the EPG and then a full week or more is loaded when I want it. The picture is excellent, the logic simple to use, it is a joy to own and use, it's a pity there are not more good TV programmes to watch with it.
  • Pros: Never misses a programme
  • Cons: Slow EPG update

  • Summary: This product will revolutionise your television viewing. It is dead easy to use and has plenty of space for recordings. The add fast forward button is great, as is the ability to record on a weekly/daily basis. Cons? Missing end of programmes (although this is supposed to have been sorted with the new software - just need to update mine!) No series record option. Thats it! Overall a fantastic product that changes the way you watch tv.
  • Pros: Never miss any show ever again. Or watch pointless ads.
  • Cons: Due to programming shifts can sometimes miss the last two minutes of a programme leaving you feeling cheated.

  • Summary: I've had this machine for about 6 months now and it's an excellent machine. Plugged into my sound system, it also doubles up as my radio tuner. The only major complaint is that it has been known to freeze up so if that happens when you are away for a few days, your programs don't get recorded. That having been said, mine has not done it for a few weeks now. Still worth it for the price though - one of my better buys.
  • Pros: Great feature-rich product
  • Cons: Software reliability

  • Summary: An excellent bit of kit that has transformed my TV watching habits. I now rarely watch anything live as it's being broadcasted, and instead play back things I've recorded on this. So I always have something I want to watch when I have time, and I can skip the adverts quickly and easily.
  • Pros: Ease of use, looks good, skip button
  • Cons: Programme guide doesn't cache

  • Summary: We bought a Humas PVR 9200T unit to enhance our viewing pleasure with a recently bought 37" Dell TV. Great we thought, can't wait to get both hitched up. That's where the problem started, as soon as we connected the Humax to the Dell TV... we couldn't record two programmes simultaneously, one was with sound, one without! We returned the unit and changed it for another one thinking it was faulty, but no, we still had the same problem.
  • Pros: Ease of use
  • Cons: Remote control is tacky and cheap

  • Summary: Excellent functionality for the money. This is something that is really easy to use by the whole family and will probably change the way you watch TV
  • Pros: Ease of use; "just works"; good picture quality
  • Cons: No automatic padding before/after recording; time taken to refresh EPG; moving recording to PC slow and prone to errors
