Topfield TRF-2400 Masterpiece HD PVR

 

The Topfield TRF-2400 Masterpiece HD PVR set-top box is almost identical to the Topfield TRF-2460 Masterpiece HD, except that it has a smaller capacit...

Good tuners, can record up to four programs at once, changes channels swiftly

Network streaming function isn't great, Web transfers unreliable, media playback interface could be better

The Topfield TRF-2400 Masterpiece HD has plenty of features, but it excels at being a personal video recorder. It's a top product for TV junkies who want to record multiple shows at once (up to four) and then play them back easily or archive them on a...

The Topfield Masterpiece HD is a very capable PVR that offers a lot of recording flexibility and just as many cutting edge features as the "big boys".

Good recording quality ; Excellent feature set including YouTube and Flickr ; Decent amount of storage ; DRM-free recordings playable on PC

Some recorders are capable of a better image ; User interface is a little sparse ; Component input only accepts 576p

The words media centre were first coined by Microsoft. They promised the world, but delivered very little. Now Topfield has delivered a Masterpiece media centre that sets a new benchmark for content delivery, management and storage.

Easy to set-up; Clean interface; IceTV EPG; YouTube and Flickr access; MP3 and Video player built-in; Expandable memory via USB or eSATA; FTP and web server access

IP and FTP functions more for the advanced users

Most products present some obvious problems; we politely point them out while also highlighting the positives on offer. With this Topfield, we just sat back and enjoyed a product that could almost be described as a new generation of PVR.

There is more — we haven’t even mentioned Battle Tank — but we can't fit it in. Suffice to say that in our time with the Masterpiece HD, we found its name to be entirely apt.
