An adequate unit, but too many picture flaws for a better than average rating

Sagem ITD68

Nowhere near the best Freeview receiver around, but affordability certainly helps it make a case

Teac DVB420

The set top box itself is very good, very clear pictures but the remote is shocking. I returned it to the shop I bought it from and they tried it with two other identical remotes but the result was the same.

I bought this box to use in my study for recording motorsports etc. I have always held quite a high regard for Philips products in the past, but this is not up to the usual standard. I have three main complaints about it. 1. it is unacceptably noisy....

Now have had it for over 4 years, and it finally died earlier this year. Replaced all the caps in the power supply and it is now good as new!, and even more reliable than before.. Shame it doesnt have USB or an easy method to extract stuff off HD. Good...

I too have had some problems, but all are easily fixed, wouldn't recomend unless you're at least a bit tech savvy as the fixes can be a bit awkward to implement. When working it is a good box with plenty of features. As for the problem some people...

Would not waste my money of buying a Bush product again, the after sales service is a waste of time and effort as it gets you no where. I'll be buying the cheap ones from now on and replace them when they stuff up which always seems to be just out of...

OK, I use this product for watching netflix on my TV. The quality is pretty good, depends on the DVD or Stream most of the time, but no worse than my non HD Dvd plays on my non HD tv and no worse than the picture on my laptop, taking into account that...
