Good storage capacity. The dual record and watch is also great along with the fact that it stores programs that you have recorded as a series and lets you know when they are back on again. Very good at letting you know if you have overlapped recordings...

Dubbing takes ages and isn't the most reliable. Image quality for the best of DVD's at the highest recording quality isn't that good either and then only lets you record one film at the most

The initial setting-up is easy and straightforward. The machine does everything that it is supposed to do and does it well. Unlike some, I find the programme guide invaluable and it is simple to use

To keep the programme guide up to date requires that the recorder be left on standby - this is a nuisance but would appear to be unavoidable. A minor niggle is the number of operations required to delete a recording when it is no longer required. Note....

Doesn't do as much as you would hope. I cannot stop recording once I've started for example
