Expert review by:

Topfield TF5800

 

The TF5800 is the most expensive player on test and the Topfield brand has an army of diehard fans behind it proclaiming the brilliance of their PVRs. But is it worth the extra money and does it live up to its owners' enthusiastic praise?

Solid build; fully customisable; great picture quality; tonnes of options

Expensively priced; disappointing EPG

THE BEST GADGET I HAVE HAD, IN A LONG WHILE.

Quality, amazing versitilty, programmable, the video is dead, long live the PVR. connections. mp3 playback
