Ease of set up /low noise when running. Easy to record programs and to watch bbc / itv I player but 4od and others are in the apps for some strange reason .

It takes a few button presses to watch a recording ,don't buy this to surf the net,

HD Image quality is great; even normal definition is good on most channels. Recorded programmes start at the beginning of teh actual programme, i.e. without adverts/trailers beforehand (unlike Sky!). The box itself looks great - very sleek design.

Schedule manager not quite as slick as Sky's, but not bad at all.

Consumer review by: Geoff (productreview.com.au)

appallingly bad and unreliable

 

Bought in December 2013. Recording is completely unreliable - maybe half the programs actually record, despite it saying at the time that it is recording. The TV guide often does not work, despite my TV and Panasonic TV guide on other HDD working fine...

In theory it has lots of smart features, but they are often slow or don;t work at all.

See above - toally unreliable and incredibly frustrating.

Works well after initial problems with activating the Apps. Convenient to have everything in one box. The only media player we could find which offered access to Lovefilm instant.

Not easy or intuitive to navigate. Handset takes some getting used to as the control buttons are not where you'd expect them to be and the biggest buttons aren't necessarily the most used!

Not Great

 

We are also having problems with the Samsung player. The recording feature is pretty hopeless and unreliable. I would guess that only half the programmes I try to record actually do - otherwise they are just blank files on the hard drive with no...

Not many pros to be honest.

All of the above review
