Goodmans GDB3

Bought this after reading the reviews and one said can be used on portable with just a loop aerial - and it did. For the money it works ! what more do you want !!

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.

Supernet 8000-T PVR

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...

Philips DTR 320

I've had this set top box for three years and it is constantly freezing between channel changes, crashing, muting itself, getting picture ratio wrong and turning itself off. Just recently it has started not storing any of the channels so every time you...

Grundig PVR

PVR button on remote won't work at times, yet all the other buttons functions do, when it was working just ∞ minutes before hand, then suddenly not working. F### junk. Unit freezes up. Reboot everything yet to no avail. Never ever buy Grundig!!!!!

RCA DS4220RE Dual-LNB DIRECTV System with Free Pro-Installation

This is an excellent product. I recommend it to anyone contemplating switching from the poor quality of cable to the high quality of DSS.

Toshiba DST3000 High Definition Digital Satellite Receiver

I was an early adopter of a Toshiba 40H80 Theater Wide HDTV and the DST-3000 back in late 2001. I have always been a fan of Toshibas products and to me they are top notch and for the most part have lived up to and exceeded thier expectations. The...

Samsung SIR-T351 - HDTV tuner

I bought one of these used for about $40 for an older widescreen TV, for OTA only. Set up was simple and it worked right out of the box. Scanned my channels and I'm ready to go. I have an outside newer antenna and the closest broadcast station is...

Sony SVR-S500

Ours has just packed up again. One replacement, one reconfigure and now broken completely. Unfortunately now out of guarantee. Will defintitely not buy a Sony one to replace. Didn't buy on Amazon - should have and checked the reviews first!

Gigaware® PC to TV Converter

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...

AVerMedia AVerTV Hybrid STB 1080i

AverMedia has launched a wide number of TV products that work a lot better than the Hybrid STB 1080i and we’d readily recommend any USB TV tuner and a notebook over this version, as the results are far from satisfying.

Bush DFTA13HD / DFTA13HDSIL

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...

RCA DIRECTV System DRD480RE

Hauppauge DEC 1100-T
