Thomson DHD4000 Freeview Decoder review

 

Contrary to the spin on the web, this long expected Freeview receiver is indeed the twin tuner version that was expected. Despite some last minute rumour-mongering, the twin tuner hard drive Freeview box from Thomson is everything you've been hoping...

Sleek, records to hard drive, 40GB of space (20 hours)
