Nice design ; Live and recorded ictures ; Simle ease of use

No multimedia functionality via USB ; Poorly designed remote ; Price

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
