Sagem DVR64250T

A fantastic price for a unit boasting smart, user-friendly features, good image performance and a very large hard drive

Sirius S50

This sleek receiver can save satellite radio's bounty for later, but on such excessively dictatorial terms that we're not inclined to play ball.

Rosewill RMS-HDA5000 Amplified Digital TV Antenna - Indoor/Outdoor

I wasn't able to get any channels with this. I tried another antenna and I got two channels at least. When I bought it, it cost 15 dollars more too. Oh well

Strong SRT 6500

Bought mine in February from Harvey Norman - then found they didn't have it in stock so had to wait a month to get it! That wasn't Strong's fault I suppose, but when I did finally get it I found the tuner was so useless it couldn't even find half the...

sagemcom rti90-500 t2 500gb hd digital tv recorder with freeview

This is a very poor product, with little or no quality control. As many have said, the box is incredibly slow to operate and requires extreme patience to use. The "past program" glitch is infuriating, and seems to require that the box be turned off and...

Strong SRT 7000

The stb7000 connected up without any problems, the problem was the dvr didn't dvr. A message would come up," no internal device" , the hard drive was not being recognised. After studying the instructions and searching on the internet, I decided to ring...

This product is ok unless you have a good quality one. It's slower responding and makes unnecessary noise. It is red

Tao TXM1020 XM2go (XM)

There's not much to differentiate this player from other XM2go products, but its black shell certainly gives it the edge in the cosmetics department.

Thomson DHD4000 Freeview Decoder

The DHD4000 was one of the earliest PVRs on the market and, in its day, was excellent. However, since the support for its EPG was withdrawn in 2010 and with the coming of the new standards for switchover it has become virtually useless. It should be...

AVerMedia AVerTV DVB-T Volar

The Volar is handy for a notebook, and it's inexpensive. Its tuner found all the digital channels and displayed them with good signal strength, but it was let down by its software. It needs more convenient time-shifting capabilities and the ability to...

Roadstar DVB 2012 T

This is a first class job. It does just as it says on the box. So easy to use and I cannot recommend it enough.

LG LST-5402P

Works very well, is very reliable and can have a lot of recorded shows saved on the hard drive. I set up a week worth of recording and watch it back so I never have to watch live TV and the stupid ads!!! It is quiet whilst on and recording. I think it...

Goodmans GDB9 Digital Set Top Box

The GDB9 is easy to use and offers a useful range of features, but it's not exactly pretty – the identical Grundig is a much more stylish proposition

A powerful and expensive device, this unit is clearly aimed at advanced users, who will find themselves more than satisfied with its incredible range of features. Newcomers to the PVR market would probably be better served with a simpler model.

Bauhn (Aldi) 250GB Twin HD PVR

I agree with previous review. The item is taping well BUT there is little room for adjustments or program shifts or changes. It gives little information - so once programs change you end up with anything. Struggles to give little or no information on...

Strong SRT 5429 / SRT 5429A

We have had this about 2 1/2 years. It works well, the upgrade feature is good and it is easy to work. We have another one which is really hard to use so mainly we dont bother and just use this one. I am just going to see if there any any updates for it.

Teac HDR2500T

I purchased this unit in September 2009 for $580, which I thought was a lot of money, but it did have twin tuners. After two years it needed a new hard drive, a further $265 and has regularly played up since then. When it works its great, but I...

Purchased this product and most frustrating thing is that recordings just drop off with 5-10mins to go. This is even though I prompted the unit to record 15mins after the finish time. Some shows do not record at all and some shows that I did not record...
