Sharp TU-T2HR32 review


Sharp produces one of the best Freeview+HD recorders around

User interface ; HD & SD picture quality ; Highly customisable

Relatively small hard disk ; Poor remote control ; No USB media playback

Sharp TU-T2HR32 - Pocket-lint


As always, the cable and satellite boys have already gone one-up in anticipation of this first batch of Freeview+HD recorders - Sky's added 1TB hard drive

GUI, HD pictures, speed

Remote, noisy in operation, size of HDD

Lively, colourful pictures from both standard definition and HD channels are an essential part of its allure, but the way it's built around good-looking, easy to use onscreen menus - and the speed of the box itself - makes for an attractive option for...

When it comes to fundamental Freeview HD functionality this PVR is hard to fault.

Poor product best avoided


Fan is extremely noisy, and only cuts out 10 minutes after the unit is turned off. Constant problems with recording, I have lost count of the number of times this item has either failed to record a programme, or part recorded one. Also, it will record...

Signal strength required to stop pixilation, turn it’s self on for no apparent reason

Sharp TUT2HR32


the menu is easy to follow, there is plenty of memory, recording is simple with the choice to record the whole series or just one episode, great for holidays

it seems to switch it self on to enable the fan to cut in, turn it off at night and its back on in the morning (if i had known this before i would still have bought this)

Sharp TUT2HR32


Box is very compact and aesthetically pleasing. ability to record two channels and watch another is good

would be nice to have a clock display on the box and also an indication of what channel you are watching. Is a little slow moving about the electronic programme guide. EPG isn't the most intuitive or good looking that i've seen
