Customer Review

on 21 July 2006
I've always been wary of buying stuff like this at fairly steep prices, but my oh my is this machine worth every penny!

The massive hard drive is a godshend; i was away last weekend at a steam rally, and set it to record 10 different programs at the highest quality - with a disc this is nigh-on impossible without coming home and changing discs - and there's still 50 hours recording time remaining!

there's a great "idiot" button - otherwise know as the Guider - which lists all the available functions and guides you through them step by step, such as copying from the hard drive to disc or vice-versa, timer recording and even playing something.

You can even copy CD's on this, which has bmade things far easier for my dad.

Not experienced any lock ups like some people ahve complained about, then again i do update the firmware every month by downloading it from their website.

Takes about 25 seconds from pressing the power button to fire up and ready for recording/playing.

You can't watch DVD's whilst recording, but seeing as i've already a PC, Xbox 360 and PS2 within 3 feet of the recorder, I don't see that as a problem at all.
