5.0 out of 5 stars Discounted - but spot on
This digital TV recorder box was advertised as 'slightly used' and came with a £30 discount on the cheapest new price. I'm very pleased that I took this route. The box really is 'as new' and works perfectly. It was also delivered promptly, with all of the original contents.

1.0 out of 5 stars WOULD NOT RECOMMEND
Worked fine to begin with but started chopping the end off programmes after a couple of months. Despite trying to contact via email I had no response and also the phone number was unobtainable. Would NOT recommend buying this product or dealing with the company. Absolutely no communication at all. A complete waste of money.

This Hitachi Freeview recorder is wonderfully easy to set-up and operate. Just plug it in and it does the rest for you - so simple. All functions are straightforward and the recording facility is the easiest I have come across. I write as a complete technical duffer, - if I can use it anyone can!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great All Round, 5 July 2014
This review is from: Hitachi 500gb Freeview HD Digital TV Recorder with Smart HDR5T01 (Electronics)
Great box, fast, easy to use with a clear interface, comes with all u need including a hdmi cable most new boxes you have to buy one separately the only thing is just turn off the low power setting so the box turns on faster and that's it no other issues or problems.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great., 18 July 2014

This review is from: Hitachi 500gb Freeview HD Digital TV Recorder with Smart HDR5T01 (Electronics)
Great service, the only sign that the unit was a return was the batteries were loose in the box, the unit had no scratches,and was pristine.
Manufactured for Argos, by Vestel, faboulous HD picture, both on HD, and on upscaled SD.
A great unit have had it for quite a while, has not missed a beat, very pleased.

Bought this recorder for my caravan to replace a noisy Thompsom box that was playing up. Already had one at home so knew how it would perform. Was delighted to find I could get HD channels as well from my old caravan aerial. Very pleased with my purchase and would recommend to anyone thinking of buying one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value - does the job, 2 Oct 2014

This review is from: Hitachi 500gb Freeview HD Digital TV Recorder with Smart HDR5T01 (Electronics)
Good value, easy to set up and use, 250 hours of programe storage. Okay it's a reconditioned return unit but value for price. I did have an occasional problem with an error message ("out of range") when tv connected via HDMI but the scart cable connection is just as good. Option for it to record a series which is great. I'm pleased I bought it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to set up and use, 10 Aug 2014

This review is from: Hitachi 500gb Freeview HD Digital TV Recorder with Smart HDR5T01 (Electronics)
Small, neat, light and efficient. Does the job. Easy to set up and use. Takes a long time to boot up (as much as a minute) and at first you think there is a problem as there is no message to say what is happening. The highlighter in the library menu is far too red and dark oblitorating the item you are trying to find. But overall a good bit of kit.

so small bought as a present. I have one and this is new generation, up to date and worth the competative price paid. No complaints at all.

This is a decent backup machine for recordings, but the smart aspect is a bit limited and I can't get youtube to work.
