Summary: Bought this to replace an earlier Humax model. It's a great device. So versatile. Network connectivity is a major plus, able to play video and music from my NAS server. Also can play from USB stick; there's a USB socket on the front (hidden) and one on the rear.
Summary: Love this machine, first time I've had a Humax. Had a few Panasonics of which the last 2 developed the same fault so thought it was time for a change. Its really easy to use, quite similar to the Panasonics.
Summary: The recorder was not difficult to install or operate, which is more than can be said for the remote unit supplied. I like many others have found the buttons to be inoperable after a relatively short number of operations. Replacement remotes costing £37 are no different.
Summary: This is by far the best Freeview DVR out there. I made the mistake of buying a Samsung Freesat DVR and it was awful. So slow and buggy. Although the Humax is Freeview instead of Freesat, it was worth losing the extra channels for the speed, reliability and flexibility of the Humax.
Summary: My daughter persuaded me to buy this, saying it would be better than the DVD recorder I already had. I record A LOT of programmes due to working shifts, and I have to say that this is so much better.
Summary: Supposedly new unit arrived with a dent in the top. It had been hard to track down, so I didn't complain. BUT any recordings made (during the very first week of use) for later playback turned out to skip between one and five seconds, making it virtually impossible to view what we'd recorded.
Competent recorder, but not a user friendly remote.

Summary: I purchased this for my father (who is in his nineties) to allow him to record and watch programmes when he wishes. It has performed well, and was straightforward to install. However, aerial connector required but not provided.
Summary: We did have a Humax before, but this one is a great improvement with many additional features. It is interesting to note that having bought an HD ready television, we thought we would have to invest in a separate aerial to receive HD broadcasts, but this updated Humax recorder manages to offer HD...
