Grundig GUFSDTR500HD review


An accessible, but expensive hi-def Freesat recorder

Nice design ; Live and recorded pictures ; Simple ease of use

No multimedia functionality via USB ; Poorly designed remote ; Price

A stylish and easy-to-use Freesat PVR, but it's unlikely to persuade punters with that price tag

Grundig GUFSDTR500HD Freesat recorder


It might not boast as many high-def channels as Sky HD or Virgin, but Freesat has provided salvation for thousands of viewers who want HD, but simply can't afford the steep subscription fees. That is, before Freeview HD reared its head. Our only qualm...

It looks surprisingly stylish, offers cracking picture quality and the onscreen layout is excellent

It’s expensive and comes with a muddled remote

Our only qualm is the price - £300 is a lot of anyone’s money, particularly when you can find the Humax a lot cheaper online. The older FOXSAT-HDR might pack a smaller hard-disk, but with features like USB media playback and external HDD support, it...

Grundig GUFSDTR500HD Freesat+ HD Recorder


A simple, functional Freesat+ PVR.

Also on the rear is a USB port which can only be used to manually upgrade the unit’s software. Sadly you can’t use it to upload files onto the hard disk or dump recordings onto an external HDD as you can on the Humax FOXSAT-HDR, putting this box at a...

Grundig Satellite Recorder : Grundig Satellite Recorder GUFSDTR500HD


Somewhat different from the previous two Freesat units I have looked at from Humax and Panasonic. The first things I noticed are that it has no visible clock on the front and also no obvious means of knowing how far into a program you are.

Doing my Internet searches found the Grundig 500GB Freesat + HD unit at a best price of £299.99 from the links below. They also do similar unit with a 320GB hard disc. It should also be available from Argos

Grundig GUFSDTR500HD


Easy to use and install.

The tuners did not have enough signal strength, mainly tuner two, consquently when recording programs you only got the picture and no sound. I had a new quad LNB fitted to my dish so it was nothing to do with my dish. Purchased a Humax box as...

Grundig GUFSDTR500HD


Nice slim design. Easy on screen menu & set up

Recording/playback was jumpy on every recording. Tried reformatting disc as it suggested but never fixed the problem. Will not be buying another one of these.

Grundig GUFSDTR500HD


I find the grundig 500gb freesat digi box absoluteley fabulous, easy to set up and,operate. The most fantastic thing is that you can record two channels whilst still watching a third, the picture quality is fantastic and generally I am very pleased...
