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

Expert review by:

Sharp TU-T2HR32 review


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 models to its HD boxes, and Virgin Media's V+HD has had three tuners for yonks.

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 it an attractive option for...

This digital TV recorder has the ability to pause and rewind TV

User interface ; HD & SD picture quality ; Highly customisable

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

Sharp has made one of the finest Freeview HD recorders, though it's a one-trick pony; media playback and transfer of files from USB would be a nice addition, as would some kind of media streaming. It has an (presently unused) Ethernet LAN port, after all.

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

Expert review by:

Sharp TUT2HR32 review


Sharp's TUT2HR32 Freeview+HD recorder ticks the right boxes, with twin HD tuners, a 320GB hard drive and bright, colourful interface. Unfortunately, it also generates more fan noise than a Take That concert.

Colourful interface ; Easy to use

Intrusive fan noise ; USB for firmware updates only ; No channel display

Overall, the TUT2HR32 is a workmanlike PVR, devoid of the niceties offered by rivals such as Toshiba's similarly priced HDR5010. The fact that it also doubles as a Dyson Airblade does not really count in its favour.

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...

Sharp TUT2HR32


It works and found all the channels I expected. It was relatively inexpensive given that it records HD

I am using this as a replacement for a Topfield TF5800PVR which died unexpectedly after many years of loyal service. I am using it with an SD box but got it as we anticipate upgrading to HD at some time ; All the reviews seemed to be pretty good so we...
