Very impressed. We live in an area which went digital two months ago.

Easy to use and excellent quality. I am considering buying another for our second television set.

Only comment is that you can only record seven days in advance. This is a problem when you go on holiday.

Would not hesitate to recommend this product.

This is a lovely Freeview box. It is very easy to set up and use. It looks smart and is very slim. I would recommend this to a friend.

Not had a lot of luck with cheep recorder free view boxes in the past, I went for a brand, been looking on eBay Amazon... this branded one came up for £150 ish, also a complete re-furb one for £50. I thought I'll give the branded re-furb a chance, so far so good set up really well, the pic is good, the remote is hard to use "its seems slow to respond" but OK the menu screens are poor (That could be down to the huge TV I have) but it works and works well, which is the main thing.

PS the lip sink sometimes plays up, Any ideas?

Since I bought it, my mate came over to sort it out, no lip sink probs, I'm used to the remote and yes the menus are a little slow ie the recorded library and TV listings every thing else is fab

I brought this product from Barton Books and I was unable to use it for a month as I could not move back into my flat. When I did move back in I plugged it in only to find it 'DOESN'T do what it says on the tin'!
For a start it fails to record programmes (which is like buying a skateboard with no wheels!), it also cuts out all the time whilst you are watching TV and when it does actuallly record it seems to record a 1 hour show in 3 parts, missing out bits inbetween!
I contacted Barton Books who were about as useful as an ash tray on a motorbike who told me I could do nothing as it was over the 14 day warranty! I'm continuing to challenging this as I've brought a product which fundamentally doesn't work.
So just a warning, DO NOT buy this product and don't USE BARTONS BOOKS ..... THEY ARE INCOMPETENT!

Very slow in loading library up to 5 mins!!! slow response in fast forward and rewind so it is best not to bother if you want to skip ads it came jump 20 - 30 mins at a time. Just got it to record but have to be very patient. I brought two and they are both the same. Contacted seller they said that the low power might be on (i have tried on and off and makes no difference) I only have my TV licence till the end of month so did not have the time (or warrant p&p) to send it back. On plus side quick delivery and even with faults better than a bush recorder.

The quality of recording is exact from source, I bought this to record off my Virgin Media box and it doesn't suffer any degradation.

Can then record to any number of DVD types. Now just trying to get my One4All to work with it, so I dont have yet another remote knocking about.

I bought this ages ago and forgot to leave a review. It works perfectly well. Good menu format. Downsides though, if you are recording 2 programs them you have to watch one of them, or watch something previously recorded or just switch it off! And it takes about 2 minutes to load when you switch it on. Mine has a habit of freezing too but that's probably more to do with the signal. All in all, I'm happy with it and it's aesthetically pleasing,.
