I had heard so many negative comments about all of the PVRs across many manufacturers that I held off buying for a long time, until the need become too great to ensure we recorded all the kids programs!!

This machine is working great, simple menus which are easy to use, no fan noise, records as set including series link and so far we have made little use of the massive disc space. So very pleased with it.

This recorder seemed to be the best recorder I've tried yet. And I've tried a few of them now. My Sharp was very good but always kept freezing on me. I tried a Sagem, which had a rubbish interface and was slow, and which eventually stopped working. Then I tried the Humax, and when it worked I could understand the good reviews because it has a lot of good features and a very nice interface. But then the recording stopped working after a few days. The recording symbol completely disappeared. I found a bunch of other reviews in which people have experienced the same thing. I called up the company and they said it seems to have a faulty harddrive.

It seems like there are so many problems with all these TV recorders. Maybe the technology is just too new or something. But if you are going to get a TV recorder then I would recommend buying through Amazon, because their customer service is top and even though I had my Sagem for over a month Amazon still took it back. This Humax 500gb is not sold by Amazon but by a company through Amazon and thus does not have the brilliant service and return policy that Amazon has. Since these TV recorders seem to be so prone to messing up I would definitely recommend going through a company that has proven its great customer service like Amazon. I'm going to try and buy the Humax again, because there just is not much else on the market. Though I'm going to go with the Humax 320gb this time because Amazon directly sells that one.

I bought this to replace a previous Humax that was superb until it was killed by a thunder storm. Unlike some other reviews it did have a proper manual but trust me it doesn't help. have tried changing HDMI cable and using a scart but stubbornly refuses to find any channels except BBC and the rubbish channels only morons watch ( Also very annoyingly it will find the pay channels) All this despite the fact that my Toshiba TV manages perfectly well with the same aerial and finds all the channels without interference.
Even the channels it does find freeze and fade in and out.

Would be great piece if kit if it worked am going to persevere and try a second one...will update

Update ....

Replacement now received and is working as it should. The instructions seem clearer on this one and channel set up worked first time. When it works it is good so if you get adodgy one send for a replacement straight away!

This is one of the worst pieces of consumer electronics I've bought. It gets two stars because when it works, it works outstandingly well, but...

A Digital TV Recorder that forgets to record TV programs is somewhat disappointing - this thing has a nasty habit of working perfectly for several weeks and then suddenly decides to dump its recording schedule for no apparent reason. I've lost count of the number of times this has happened, resulting in missed programs and much bad language. Clearly Humax didn't test the firmware adequately in their rush to get it onto the market, and they also can't be bothered to fix the firmware over the air. A shame, because it could have been such a good product.

I'm going to dust off my ancient, outdated, but 100% reliable Sony and this piece of junk is going in the bin where it belongs. I won't be buying anything else made by Humax.

I really should have paid more attention to the negative reviews before purchasing this product. I have now had two of these in a row from Amazon, both of which are now on their way back due to a recurring fault. Both boxes had a jumpy, stuttering picture which lost the audio feed intermittently, as well as simply not recording scheduled programmes. Since my old and exhausted Bush freeview box can still produce a much better picture than these £200 ones (and so, it is obviously not a signal problem at my end) I am sending them back as defective for a full return. It is hard to heed the advice of negative reviews before buying a product, but I really do advise that you find another option before committing to buying this box. In the very least, make sure you cover your back and buy from a company with a good returns policy. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT IF AT ALL POSSIBLE.

My current Bush freeview box has a dying hard drive, so I now need to find a different freeview box within my price range to replace it (I was really counting on having one of these Humax boxes). I am tempted to take a leap of faith and purchase the higher end Humax HDR Fox T2 - if anyone knows of it's reliability etc. please comment - it seems to have slightly better reviews than this product, but I do not want to spend a lot more money on this model only to end up sending a third box back! I was under the impression that Humax led the world of set-top boxes, but my confidence in them has definitely been shaken.
