Absolute rubbish. Switches itself off and on at random. More often than not does not record any of the scheduled programs or just records the first 2/3rds and then drops out before the end. Freezes and requires rebooting almost daily. Also, when placed in series with my DVD player it turns everything played on DVD a blue/green colour. I though it might be a rogue box but replaced it and the second unit was exactly the same.

Easy to set-up but problems with the recordings - either didn't record them or only part of them.
Also would loose picture with a blank screen appearing and only way to reset was to switch box off
Return box for refund

My Goodmans recorder arrived and was very easy to set up with some great features.
Unfortunately the box stopped working in a week so I called Goodmans help desk.
Well who said service was dead, the gentleman at the help desk just arranged with
no fuss whatsoever to have my box exchanged by courier the very next day, I was
very impressed and my new box works perfectly. Would recommend this product 100%.

Bought this for a spare room and it regularly crashes, skips most of the recordings and is a general failure at doing what it is supposed to do

This was faulty straight out of the box. I set it up following the Quick Start Guide and tried to record a programme. The device displayed on screen a "Recording Device Initializing" message for a few seconds but failed to set any recording. I used the "R" button, but this only allowed me to set reminders, not recordings. I could not access the Library (which is supposed to list scheduled and actual recordings) at all. I performed a factory reset and this made no difference. I am reform obliged to rate this a "1". In addition, I must report that the Goodmans customer service is poor. The phone help line given in a the product literature was a recorded message directing me to he website. The website offered a chat option, which was not staffed on a Saturday afternoon! All in all, a poor show from Goodmans. I am returning this for a refund and will buy from another manufacturer.

This is a small and pretty basic looking Freeview recorder, and once you've set it up, you realise that it really is a basic device!

This comes with a SCART cable and once you've connected it to the power, TV aerial and (obviously) your telly - it's ready to use. It scans for channels quickly and within minutes you can be watching Freeview through it. This doesn't have an HD receiver so you won't be able to watch any of the HD channels (there aren't too many of them but most of the flagship BBC/ITV content is shown on them), the standard definition picture is what you expect but the native picture using my TVs own inbuilt Freeview tuner seems to be of better quality.

Given that I prefer my TVs own Freeview quality I used this purely as a recorder rather than to watch live TV. It is an adequate recorder but the menus look a little cheap and the user interface isn't the greatest. It's easy to navigate through but it can be a little clunky and every-so-often is a little unresponsive which leads to you pressing a button twice after a delayed response and shooting straight past the option you were after! The 320 GB hard drive is actually quite large and you can fit many programmes onto it, but the truth is that most modern devices now offer BBC iPlayer and other catch-up services which negate the need for such high capacity and even stream in high definition.

In a nutshell: This product is average at best, if this was a low price device it would be a suitable 'budget buy' - but there are cheaper options out there which perform better, are more pleasant to use and offer more functionality.

This thing is total rubbish. The remote only works when it feels like it, then without warning the unit will erase all recordings. We consequently performed all the software updating, format hardive etc, then it did it again. It quite often did not record programs, reasons unknown. We only got this model because previously we had a Humax ( not the HD model) which was equally hideous in operation and consistant freezing. Anyway if anyone can recommend a HD PVR please advise, but for goodness sake stay away from this machine.

Picture frequently prone to breakup / pixellation whenever a car passes by the house - so excessively prone to slightest electrical interference.
If same aerial lead plugged directly into TV the picture is always fine, so not a signal / cable issue.
Failed to record some scheduled TV programmes - unaccepable (device was purchased solely as a recorder as TV has inbuilt freeview receiver).

No scart lead or RF cable was included (no leads at all), so "out of the box" you could not connect it to your existing TV unless you were fortunate enough to have some spare cables around.

If the review sytem allowed zero stars I would have awarded 0, but as 1 is minimum allowed, a 1 it will have to be.
