1.0 out of 5 stars Awful, 3 Feb 2013
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value, works well, 22 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Purchased as a replacement for a more expensive transmitter that stopped working after a few years use. As easy to use and performs as well as the model it replaces, but far cheaper than comparable models from the manufacturer of our previous product.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bring back the white look, 9 Sep 2007
The brushed aluminium look fails dismally. With accessories such as mighty mouse and wires all white you have an aesthetic mis-match, maybe if accessories and wires all had that metallic look it would be a different experience.
It all smacks of cost cutting; back of the display not aluminium look but black so viewed from a different angle your aluminium iMac is a black plastic and aluminium iMac.
The white iMac had a purer visual aesthetic, it was a machine you would be happy to have on "open" display whereas the new one is best viewed with the black plastic back is hidden.

Beyond the aesthetics it is fine, the basic model of their range but good performance on everyday computing tasks.
If needed you can easily access memory slots to upgrade RAM - however nothing else is *easily* user accessible so ensure the hard drive and video card is sufficient for your needs when you buy.

The keyboard is a bit of an irritant, the height cannot be adjusted and the keys have a very "dead" feel with little in the way of feedback - it's like the days of the ZX80 all over again.
