    4.0 out of 5 stars Unanimously the best buy 23 Dec 2008
    UPDATE: I have had this for about 2 and a half years now. I have had relatively few problems. I have found that it does lock up and freeze but this only happens when the disk is nearly full. Deleting a few programmes does the trick. The box, like all of them, does suffer from forgetting to record programmes when re-tuned. You have to re-reserve the programmes you want to record after a major re-tune. I think this is beacause the box understands channel numbers and not channel names so can't follow a station if it wanders around. The Panasonic that I have has the same problem but its a bit more forthright in its warning about re-tuning meaning it needs to be re-programmed.

    I bought it in December 2008. Here is what I wrote after 2 weeks (and I have not changed my mind!)

    A great buy at just over 100, and only a little more than a plain set top box. I did a lot of research, and the Humax comes out top for a dual tuner freeview recorder. Now its not perfect, but it has the following advantages: from other reviews, its more reliable; Series link and automatic timing are really great and simple to use. A couple of button presses and you will never miss an East Enders episode again. There have been some grumbles about fan noise, mine is in the lounge and the PC in the other corner is much noisier, I think Humax may have fixed this since it was first raised, as I do not find it an issue at all.
    Reception: it should be obvious from reviews and forums (actually fora) like Digital spy that you need good (not fantastic, but good) reception from a roof-top aerial for any freeview box. A TV top aerial won't give you what you want, and a proper aerial fitted on the roof is absolutely necessary.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Humax PVR150T - a very good little machine 15 Aug 2008
    By Nicki
    I bought this 2 days ago, after long being interested in the already well-reviewed Humax PVR 9200T. The reason for hesitatng over the other was that it was on the expensive side (at least for some of us!) so I was delighted to see it had been updated at a price I could afford. It came out on 1st August. I literally plugged it in according to the very simple quick start guide, and the freeview channels loaded so fast and smoothly. The full instructions seem quite wordy, but are perfectly clear and simple to follow. The reception and picture on my -rather old- television is now excellent, whereas it was a bit temperamental before, eg with traffic, the reception deteriorated, had a lot of fuzz and had to juggle the aerial. None of that now.
    Despite being cheaper, it seems to have all that the 9200T had and more. It is also more economical, using only 1 watt on standby.
    You can record a series at touch of button. And have subtitles if wish. And loads more, but rather than go on, I will say confidently- see for yourself.

    O one small niggle, the same as the above mentioned PVR- for some the fan noise may take some getting used to. But I think it is every bit worth it. still deserves five stars.

    UPDATE 23/8/08
    Ok , so it's only a week later, but I would like to add a few things. i have now recorded a number of programs, and tried watching 1 while recordiing 2, and it works. And having watched back some of these, the picture is very clear, and it starts and finishes correctly when the programmes do, even when they run a bit late. It is truly simple to use.

    5.0 out of 5 stars This is an excellent buy 21 Jan 2009
    By Nick
    Verified Purchase
    I bought this because my previous Bush PVR, which was only 18 months old, had started playing up so badly it was no longer usable. I dismantled that one and put the hard drive in my PC! After surveying the reviews for a new PVR I settled on the Humax PVR9150T. The only real downside from the reviews that I had read was that many people complained about fan noise. I have had it for a little over 2 weeks now and it really is a superb bit of kit. It takes a little while to get use to the features on the remote so it is worth taking the time to read through the manual and play with the settings a little to see what they do.

    The signal from the twin tuners is excellent. You can record anything on freeview at the push of a button. It copes with a TV series really well and adjusts for time shifting in the programmes very well...mine has only cut one programme short so far and that was only by about 1 minute.

    The feature that really impressed me was the timeshifted recording--my old Bush machine didn't have that. Basically, anything you are watching it records silently in the background so, if there's a good film on at 9pm for example, but I don't want to start watching it until say 9.30--provided I have the Humax set on that channel from 9pm, I can come along at 9.30 and just rewind the film back to the beginning at up to 32x speed. Then when I'm playing it back, if the phone rings I can pause it, if I miss some dialogue I can rewind it, if I get to an advert break I can skip over it...it's brilliant and it all works perfectly. I've watched a lot more TV since I bought this!

    As for the fan noise, I can't actually hear any on mine. I was a bit concerned at first. Perhaps my fan isn't working but then it doesn't seem to get really hot so maybe it just has a quiet fan? Perhaps this is a problem that Humax have fixed?

    This is a superb product. I would highly recommend it.
