As complete technophobes the wife and I have found this box so simple to use. Plug in and go......it worked without having to read the book and spend ages pressing buttons. Recording really could not be easier and so simple to watch what you have in the "library".
Would recommend this to anyone who struggles with technology

I was quite impressed by this recorder at first but it has developed the habit of not stopping the recording at the correct time but continuing to record, indefinitely until I force it to stop. This quickly uses up the hard-drive space and even when I delete the file I am not convinced I get the space back in it's entirety, which negates the advantage of having 500gb of disk space.
Finding the file causing the problem is a bit cumbersome because of the recorder's library option.
I am not sure whether this is normal or a one-off fault, but I see no reason why my recorder should behave any differently to others.

Excellent service, Very pleased with the Freeview Box. At 78 and a female I found the instructions very easy to follow.
What a bargain.. Will certainly be using this Company again.

Fantastic product, easy to use and does what it says on the tin. If you are looking for a HD recorder at a great price, this is the one to get and it was delivered within a few days.

Quite happy with free view box. Only one complaint and that is that the text in guide and library very small and difficult to read at a distance. Much smaller than on my previous free view box.

It keeps freezing when trying to watch a recorded program and record an other program. and when switching on you would think it was operating on valves and not modern day tech. its like watching paint dry!!!!!

I bought this else where, but to say that I am disappointment would be an understatement. I have a Phd in IT and electronics so I thought I knew my way around all things tech but with this it has defeated me.

It is the best of the worst. I have never come across a Freeview box that really works. I thought that I had messed up at first as I love to watch news night (10:30 - 11:20 BBC2) so I put it on series record but it insisted on recording the previous program as well.

I thought I had messed up, so I did a completely new install and set the timer to record individual programmes not series but it still sets the timer to record at random (awkward if you have the adult channels and kids in the house). By recording things at random it means that it stops me recording what I want and it will not allow me to delete its timers.

This was a replacement box for our old one with broke due to old age! This box started off fine, though the writing is very small and hard to see from a distance. After a few weeks it stopped recording half our programmes and just stayed 'scheduled' it does this repeatedly and is very slow when changing channels, turning on or going onto the library, very disappointed with this product and don't seem to be able to contact anyone about the issues we've had! Wouldn't recommend buying it

DON'T EVER WASTE YOUR MONEY ON BUSH RUBBISH!! I bought one and will only record a maximum of 5 hours of programmes the the whole box plays up..... turns itself off and on, deletes planned recordings and recorded programmes, box totally freezes and you can only turn it off via the plug, records continuously. ONE BIG WASTE OF MONEY NEVER AGAIN WILL I BUY A BUSH PRODUCT
