Can Philips impress with Freeview HD?

SD and HD pictures, Dolby Digital sound, easy to use

The DTR5520's faultless performance with both Freeview HD and normal Freeview channels is the kind of performance that gets top marks, but there's no getting away from the fact that this is a rather basic box. The interface is good and we like the...

If the price takes your fancy, this is a solid enough proposition

Philips DTR5520 receiver is looks good. Designed by Pace and sold under the Philips brand, this well-made and nicely organised Freeview HD box is little more than a simple receiver. Gadgets And Gizmos -

This product doesn't have any thing that I would class as good. It is a basic HD receiver, nothing special in any way. It really isn't value for money

The control buttons are not in the user friendly. Th main large centre button ypu would expect to reveal the EPG is actually the record button which drives you made when you constantly press it by accident
