Q-See 2-pack 4GB Mini Ball-Point-Pen Video Cameras

Similar to another review, I wish I could aim it better. My stomach causes the pen to aim towards the ceiling instead of my field of vision.

Homecast HT8000 high-definition PVR

The Homecast HT8000 PVR does have a certain budget appeal, given its twin HD tuners and the rise of more free to air HD content, but the practicalities of using the unit make it a bit of a non-starter. We'd suggest that a single-tuner HD unit, such as...

XM Mini-Tuner

Product works great.. I wish the XM programming and the price plans for subscriptions were the same quality.

A powerful set top box, but Sky's interface makes the package look slightly dated

Panavise Windshield Suction Cup Mount for POV Cameras with 1/4-20 Tripod Adapter

I bought this mount for use with a camcorder on my cars windshield. It's IMPOSSIBLE! because it's not came with the extension bar, as shows in one of the descriptions picture. I'm really disappointed.

Dreambox DM 800

The Dreambox DM800 HD is an excellent product, though I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who is not very good with computers and/or satellite systems. It is not the easiest product to configure if you don't have a decent knowledge of satellite systems...

Humax PVR-8000T

If you're looking for a PVR this is a good unit to choose. It's cheap, does the job it sets out to do and is easy to install. The addition of Freeview should appeal to terrestrial diehards, giving them the likes of BBC Three and a barebones Sky service...

Dual Tuner Satellite Receiver

Works as advertise. However, with the standard DishPRO dish, a second cable must be run from the dish to this box (and then a cable to the second TV). The picture on the second TV is not the greatest. I may be able to clean up the cabling after the...

Thomson DT16021-50

Easy plug-and-play out the box. Simple but functional / intuitive Sky-type remote control. Good quality display and menus. Can record 2 channels at once, unlike many that could and now can't after the digital broadcast system was changed. Very small...

Sagem DTR 67500T

Well, if it always worked how it is supposed to work then this would be a decent recorder, but only ever decent because the interface is a bit rubbish and the machine is slow. But it wasn't even decent for me because the recordings kept messing up: ...
