Great screen, decent battery life

Heavy, doesn't support all formats

Consumer review (



It is easy to set up and use and great to be able to just press the button and be confident your program will be recorded. It is also cleaver and if you try to overlap a program it will offer to record the same program when it is on at another time

The handbook is very thick and I am sure if i had the time I could learn to do even more with it. No real bad points
