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.

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.

I like the fact that you can choose a menu design when you finalize your DVDs.

No bad points.
