Summary: Not as easy and straight forward to use as the original.Everything seems to take longer to achieve.Im not the quickest to grasp technology but this seems to have beaten me and im loosing interest quickly.
Summary: This is my second one. The first one worked fine for a week and then just froze. I could not record or even view a previous recording. Went straight back and got a replacement. So will wait and see how this one fairs after a week. The maual is hopeless and does not go into details about the functions. " you can record programmes at the same time but have to then watch a previous recording"That is not quite true. You can still watch live TV.
Summary: it has one fault that i can find is that the clock cannot keep time it gains five sec a day. you have to turn the box off and back on to set the time right that's why it gets 3 stars has you can miss a recording. could have been made better.
Summary: Had some trouble first time round, managed to iron them out, picture quite good, but the sound having to be turned up full on unit is a step back, when you switch back to TV the TV set is loud, normal viewing TV on sound 20, watching a recording TV sound 25, hand set very big, unit very quiet when on, the clock and message on front too small and wrong colour may as well been left off much use as a chocolate fire guard, over all pleased better than the Sony that kept...
Pros: record whole series, good start up, plenty of storage
Cons: too much plumbing got to scroll through too much, hand set could have been better layout, sound.
Summary: Bought this product on the basis of the review here and on other websites. Functionality and user operations are fine. Trouble is the machine froze twice, so am now on my second box. Too early to tell whether this will behave, but if it does, nice piece of kit.
Summary: Read so many reviews before purchasing this product, and even though it isn't a complete let down I have some niggles. Firstly HD isn't as fantastic as everyone says, maybe because on my Sony Bravia the picture quality was always excellent. Had some issues with recording programs, i.e wanted to record a series didn't tape the first episode, said there was a power failure, which there wasn't.
