Not up to the job

Advantages: Has a big hard drive, up-scales pictures
Disadvantages: Freezes, Slow, Power Consumption

I bought this product purely because it "allowed" you to record one programme whilst you watch another. Sadly, this device is the worst thing I've ever used. The EPG built-in to the device takes forever to scroll across or down which makes it unbearable. ...

Free of you at last!

Advantages: compact, functional, low-power and cheap

Picture the scene - 6pm, a weekday, and the kids sat in front of the telly watching their post-homework episode of The Simpsons: "How do we get a better picture on our TV, Daddy? Channel 4 has Homer living in a complete snowstorm. Network2 on channel 99's ...

Better than just OK for the money

Advantages: Cheap, neat, does what it says on the tin
Disadvantages: Basic, too short scart lead

I have to confess from the outset that I'm not much of a telly viewer. I spend more time on the 'net than watching TV, but my wife enjoys her telly and she had begun to make ominous noises about NTL and Sky. In vain I pointed out that 99 channels of dig ...
