The price is fantastic for what you get for your money. I have used it mainly to put my camcorder recordings onto disc as its so simple, you literally 'plug' camcorder straight into player and press record. Easy to set up and as mentioned easy to use.

Renowned for freezing up alot. It has happened to me once so far but no more annoying than when it happens to my sky box, computer etc. As yet not a real issue.

Cheaper than other brands & looks nice

*The channel freezes regularly & the only way to solve is to switch off at the mains & go through the lengthy time waiting for it to re-initialise itself. *When changing channels, it's very slow switching over to the new chosen channel. *When arriving...
