I bought a refurb model from Centricube for £43 plus del came to £48. And what a great product it is too! It came in the original packaging, was sealed up and looked like it was new. The set up was really easy. just needed to plug in my old scart lead and the aerial, and bingo, it starts scanning!!
I have set it to record some programs so will see if they record, which they should as I have no reason to think otherwise. The remote control is easy to use, and is quite responsive when a button is pressed.
I would definitely recommend this Bush product to anyone looking for a cheap TV recorder. At less than 50 quid, it's an absolute bargain!
