5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Device, 11 Jan. 2010
This review is from: Panasonic DMR-XS350EBK HD Twin Freesat Tuners 250GB HDD DVD Recorder - Installation Recommended (Electronics)
This Panasonic device replaced a Sky+ HD box and a much older Panasonic HDD/DVD recorder. It has proved to be a very good choice.

Having downgraded from Sky to Freesat, we find the Programme Guide as easy to use as the Sky one, although obviously Channel choice is severely restricted. The biggest weakness at present with Freesat is the lack of High Definition channels. Currently, Channel 4 for example, which has been available on Sky for a long time is not available.

In use the machine is better than Sky HD. Picture quality is excellent, the system is easy to use, facilities for moving around within a programme are much more flexible. The box is very quiet in use.

The box is not faultless. The biggest drawback is that it is slow to start up. It takes a long time to start when first switched from standby to on. It is also slow in other respects. The programme guide is slow when moving, for example, from morning to evening programmes.

Overall, I am very pleased with the device and think it performs well. I have also unexpectedly found its ability to handle pictures and music useful.
