Summary: Frequently locks up, requiring switching off to get it working again, obviously losing any recordings in progress. Frequently loses recordings and forgets programmed series record timers. Becomes increasingly unstable over time, suffering more and more lock-ups and lost recordings until its almost unusable. Then only a Factory Reset will get it working again.
worst remote EVER, freezes, loses recordings, need I go on?

Summary: Bought this to be able to record and pause the free channels, very stylish and that's about it, no point in having bucket loads of features if you can't use them, It is without doubt the worst piece of electrical equipment I have ever bought, we are going to have to stick our neck out and buy sky, PLEASE check every review and look long and hard before spending your hard earned cash on this.
Summary: I was very excited when I first purchased this item as I was expecting to be able to recieve all the "car=tch up" services via the smart service advertised BUT unfortunately the only catch up service available through the Samsung Smart Hub was BBC iPlayer there was no sign of itvPlayer 4catch Up or Demand FIVE, when I questioned Samsung about this they said there was only BBC service available although a press release says that BBC now allows you to search for non BBC...
Good picture quality however only a few HD channels and no ITV player

Summary: The EPG is good and easy to use, my main issue is that recorded programmes disappear for no reason but after switching between contents and timer in the library some of the recorded channels may reappear.
