Philips has only recently started putting DVB-T tuners inside its recorders, but this neat set-top box looks confident enough to take you to digital switchover

Thomson DTI6300-16

Let's face it, Top Up TV was never cool. With Sky subscribers watching brand-new episodes of 24, the idea of paying for a subscription to UKTV Style looked as enticing a proposition as the Last of the Summer Wine DVD boxset

Freesat HDTV Receiver (320 GB)

The recorder is easy to set up & understand even for a novice like me! It records & plays back well & fast forward/ back can be rapid if you wish.

This box keeps freezing and crashing. Constantly have to reset factory settings to make it work. Says hard drive full at only 50%. The only answer helpline has is reset the box or format hard drive which makes you lose all recordings and therefore is...

The M-1000C makes use of the extremely powerful 66 channels MTK MT 3329 chipset that tracks 32 satellites. It consumes very little power and the battery is rated at about 20 hours, to be recharged via USB or the included travel power supply. A...

Goodmans GFSAT100SD

The external design shares relatively little with the other two – a grey plastic front panel has a 'cluster' of control keys at the right-hand end (rather than the line of buttons), and there's no chromed stripe across this model. But that's about it....

PanaVise, 809-PG Suction Mount, PortaGrip

I purchased this unit with the intent of attaching a camera to the inside of my windshield for videotaping my autocross runs. My cameras all have mount holes on the bottom (like most standard cameras do)so I was quite dissappointed to discover that no...

This is the cheapest HD box available for Freesat (and, indeed, the cheapest HD satellite receiver full stop) but it still fulfils the basic Freesat promise; it offers neither more nor less than the other Freesat HD boxes from the Alba group.

Sagem DTR64160T

We have no problems with the quality, and think the connectivity is well suited to the casual user. The 64160T's only real competition costs £100 more, and, while rivals have better storage space, that's not the be-all and end-all

Comag SL 100 HD

Very similar to the Lidl HD receiver, not so easy to use though, as the handset layout is badly configured- too many buttons in a confined space but it works well. The RENAME feature is a great improvement as is the EPG and TIMER function. I would have...

Metronic Zapbox T2 HD

We've had this well over a year and its still going strong. I did get a better aerial and that has boosted the signal even more. Loads of channels and radio stations.
