Hitachi DV-DS253E


The Hitachi DV-DS253E packs a very useful 250GB hard disk, which is bigenough to store up to 338 hours of video in the lowest-quality setting. More importantly, it gives you 66 hours of theoretically perfect recording capacity

Operating system is well designed, Great clarity and colours, Plenty of storage

No Freeview

Throw in solid home cinema audio and you have a very tempting deck at a really good price
