Samsung STB-E7900M

 

Lots of features

Let down by lots of problems - frozen picture, unit hangs, menus difficult to navigate, recordings lost, cut off or scheduled recordings fail.

Samsung STB-E7900M

 

Lots of random features. Good picture.

Internet browsing feature is difficult to use and very slow. Though it says "Catch up TV" it only has BBCiplayer. I.e. No ITVplayer or other catch up services. Poorly designed navigation. Wish I got the YouView box instead.

Samsung STB-E7900M

 

Easy to set up. Small and Light

Not all the functions are spelled out in the Operating Manual e.g. How to delete recorded programmes frpm the PVR. Did not come with an HDMI Cable. Therefore I could not set up the unit upon receipt.
