Samsung BD-DT7800 review

 

This networkable PVR has taken its cue from the brand's Blu-ray players and is feature-rich

Exclusive first UK review of Samsung's ‘smart' twin-tuner PVR.

Lots of features ; Slick Smart Hub and DLNA functionality ; Freeview picture quality

Can't record two channels simultaneously ; No Scart outputs ; Editing menu could be easier to access

The allure of the BD-DT7800 lies not so much in its bread-and-butter Freeview recording functionality (which is good, but no better than its rivals) but in the extras. The combination of Smart Hub, slick DLNA functionality, 2D-to-3D conversion and...

Nice appearance. Does the job. So far very pleased with the purchase after getting used to the remote control. Picture and sound fine and recording quality.

Hi Def. picture ok but sound could be better but that is probably the fault of the broadcast. i.e. dialogue.
