Humax PVR9300T review

 

Freeview+ should be considered a must-have for those without Sky TV, as it offers all the recording flexibility that the satellite broadcaster (and Ross Kemp) has been boasting of.

Easy and resonsive to use ; Fine AV erformance ; Well-featured

USB ort has been deactivated ; Limited HDMI modes

Stuff magazine

 

It doesn't offer Freeview HD, but this capacious hard-disk recorder is a fine PVR if standard-def will suffice…

A sensibly priced and highly desirable way into Freeview+

Humax PVR-9300T review

 

The 9300T is a worthy replacement for the 9200T, offering masses of storage space and superb recording quality. Unfortunately, the operating noise is ludicrous

Design ; Picture quality ; Ease of use ; Included cables

Fan noise

If you're looking for an alternative, then we suggest thinking about the TopUp-TV-branded Thomson box, which offers many of the same features, but has a bargain basement price to increase interest in the pay services of TopUp

Humax PVR-9300T review

 

Humax's latest PVR is far slimmer than previous models, including the excellent PVR-9200TB. The pale-blue LCD display isn't an improvement, though: it's not that stylish, or particularly bright.

A sensibly priced and highly desirable way into Freeview+

Works exceedingly well as both a tuner and a recorder; easy to use; well made and classy; sensibly priced; good spec

No 1080i/1080p scaling - but that's not an issue

very good buy

This Freeview PVR from Humax has two digital tuners and can store up to 200 hours of recordings on its integrated 320GB hard drive. There's also one-touch record scheduling in the EPG, a pause-and-play live TV function and Picture in Picture.

Upscaling blocky Freeview channels may be akin to slapping lipstick on pig, but this porker looks almost good enough to kiss. The Humax does a great job of cleaning up the more pixellated programmes, and has a huge hard drive with room for 200 hours of...

Is that a police helicopter hovering outside your window? Or perhaps a tsunami thundering down your street? Nope, it’s just the Humax’s cooling fan – although it does get quieter when you update the firmware over-the-air. Another annoyance is an...

Immensely powerful and flexible digital video recorder than polishes up Freeview nicely. Just watch out for that noisy fan and sluggish EPG.

Bought one the other day from Comet, £199 awsome unit ! Changes the way you watch freeview!! This has loads of features that other manufacturers just seem to leave out ! Twin tuners and it automatically buffers whatever your watching just like SKY+ ...

Twin Tuner, Pause Live TV (Just like SKY+), 320Gb HDD

None at moment, unit new.
