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...

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...

DGTEC DH-2000A

When HD began to break into the TV market, we were forced to buy one of these units with our new HD 1080p CRT TV as the tele didn't have a built in HD tuner. (Remember those days?). Well, that's when the problems began. As soon as we brought this unit...

RCA DIRECTV System DRD480RE

We bought this RCA receiver when we got satellite 16 months ago. Its features were adequate but not intuitive. After 4 months of minimal use as a second-room receiver the unit stopped receiving 2/3 of all channels. Tech support offered very little...

RCA Ultimate TV Satellite System - DS4290RE Digital Video Recording

I bought one of these from a bricks and boards store and (fortunately) bought a replacement extended warranty. My 4th unit since 12/9/01 has just failed entirely. Don't waste your money. Extended warranty or no, I'm ridding myself of this nuisance.

Hauppauge DEC 1100-T

I bought one of these when it was just about being discontinued. Bought it to use with an old analogue/SCARTless TV and it's been brilliant. Plus Hauppauge even sent me a replacement mini SCART lead when I wanted to use it with my main TV and couldn't...

DIRECTV Plus DWO2-10021 HD DVR (Lease)

This was much better than the last non Tivo DTV DVR I tried. I tried the last one for 2 months before I had my TIVO repaired. I recorded last years Superbowl on DT HDDVR and on my old 2002 DTV Tivo HDVR2. I watched the game on the SD HDVR2 Tivo because...

Thomson Top Up TV - 160GB Freeview Digital TV Recorder - With Free Top Up...

I am on my umpteenth replacement box in the last couple of years and have finally given up with this box. It seems to mis-time the starting of programmes which usually means that I end up with 10 minutes chopped off the end of programmes such as Family...

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.

Dish Network Dish 500

If you have the patience to set-up the system yourself. It's great - pay only for what you want to watch and when you want it, no contracts. No monthly payments. I love it, but getting it set-up and working was no simple task. Since I had no...

Teac HDR1600T

For the money its nots good value as problems occur around 1 or into the second year of operation. There are better units out there but you need to spend a few more dollars

Grundig Freeview 1TB HD Digital Video Recorder

My 1TB machine does all of the above plus picture turns green no way to right it, except turn it off for a week or so. I threw it in the garage where it can rot. Customer service does not exist.

DIRECTV Plus DVR (Lease)

Yes, I am going on my 5th DVR in less than a month. I have no clue what is wrong. I recently relocated my DVR from my bedroom to my DEN. When the tech came out and installed it, the DVR was working fine. It was a refurbished unit. Two days later I come...
