Disgusting

 

We have had this machine for 6 years now and it has given little but trouble. It has been for warranty repair twice (luckily we took out a 5-year warranty), but now that has expired and it has failed again. The situation is actually much worse than...

Nothing stood out that was really likeable.

It was very temperamental and only occasionally worked as it should.

Old machine now (6 years old) and still a great interface and going strong!

 

Have had this machine since new in 2007 and it has been great. So, so easy to program and the little icons with images of your recorded programs in the file manager is great. Wife loves it so much that when the only problem we've had has been our son...

So easy to program. Even Blind Freddy would know it is only an SD channel recorder. Upscales to 1080i and it plays DVD's region free.

None really. Not sure why others are so damning of this unit.

Ok unit

 

Bought in Nov 2008 and had issues with timer. But after firmware upgrade that fixed it, October 2009 the DVD drive decided not to read DISCs anymore. Sent it in for warranty which seemed to fix it. No problems since.

Heaps of inputs and outputs. Good user interface.

quality is average.

Terrible

 

Bought two units new in 2007 at $420.00 each. One failed to initialise the hard drive in the first week. Replaced by the retailer with a new one. In the second year one unit had a optical drive fail, so we decided to use that one for hard drive...

Menu system easy to use, remote responds quickly (no lag), fast forward and review speeds consistent (unlike Probox PVR), HDMI out.

Hardware failure, specifically the optical unit and hard drive. Also, the hard drive in the 80GB unit too small for any decent amount of recording.

Good

 

I've had this recorded for a few years now and it is still going strong. No hesitiation in recommending this unit or LG products to others.

Easy to use and flexible unit. Able to play DVDs, record TV shows onto hard drive and also to record files to DVDs. This also has an inbuilt digital TV tuner which is far superior to the old TV signals that are going to be phased out soon anyway.

Thers is a limited amount of recording hours on the unit. It would be better if it could have a bigger memory to be able to have more recorded files.

Bad

 

Now just over two years old. When we bought it, it had a software problem which prevented recording from channels who broadcast status changes. The recorder stopped and waited for user input when none was actually needed. LG took it in for service and...

Price, features, usability, flexibility of operation. Upscale of video output to HD.

Not reliable enough, software glitches, must be turned off to start a timed recording otherwise it is skipped. No USB, SD-only tuner with no down-scale.

Terrible

 

Overall- This recorder is rubbish! I would never buy LG equipment again! For an expensive HDD recorder and endless trips to the electrical store, I has been a complete lemon- sorry LG.

Easy to use, but read below

Played a DVD once and has never worked since! Oddly will still play DivX and HDD works. LG repaired once but his lasted less than one month! I would never buy again!

Terrible

 

Not worth buying. DVD played up after 18mths - press play and tray would open, etc. everything seemed to be scrambled. wouldn't turn off - had to switch off at wall sometimes. after about a year it became very noisy when operating. we still have it to...

Easy to use. Slimline look. Don't recall having much probs setting up.

Bit of a nuisance requiring tv to be on to read menu to change functions, play music etc.

Bad

 

Not good. I wouldn't recommend this product. It seems that it is not very well made despite the 'reputable' brand and the decent price tag. Very disappointed but feel we have to persist with it becasue of the money we spent on it not that long agao.

Fairly easy to use, easy set up, good storage capacity, love the record daily (excludes weekends)/weekly function

Have had nothing but problems with it! The DVD recording stopped working after a couple of months and then it wouldn't play DVDs and then the DVD drawer wouldn't even open. We had it repaired within warranty period but the repair only lasted a short...
