Pioneer DVR-440HX-S review

 

The DVD/hard disk recorder market is a competitive one, but can a respectable features list and a reasonable price set Pioneer's DVR-440HX-S apart from its rivals?

Panasonic’s DVR-440HX-S is not the highest-specced recorder, but it still performs extremely well at a bargain price

Pioneer DVR-440HX-S

 

Very Stylish, and fairly user friendly. The recording Quality is Very good, and the On Screen Instructions are Easy to follow.

The Inbuilt schedule program, updates twice a day, and the machine comes out of standby for 2 hours each time, so you can hear the fan (it's not excessively noisy) running all this time.

Pioneer DVR-440HX-S

 

Absolutely brilliant piece of kit. Provides freeview, online program guide that let's you record a program with one button - and it labels the recording automatically too. The chase-play feature is great to effectively pause a TV programme when the...

It would be nice if the recording from the programme menu would auto-start it a minute earlier than the schedule to make sure you don't miss the beginning.

No bad points.
