Humax LP40-TDR1


The LP40-TDR1 makes an admirable attempt to ride the next wave of digital TV

Great price ; Decent ---live--- pictures ; Good sound

Second-rate recordings ; Dated looks ; Single HDMI

Onscreen menus are simple, but there's a fly in the ointment: you can only access the 7-day EPG for the channel you are watching, which is annoying. Still, the remote is zippy and the TV responsive, which puts that glitch into perspective

Humax LP32-TDR1


The Humax 32in LP32-TDR1 comes with a built-in hard disk drive (HDD) and two digital TV tuners

Novel concept, Good standard-def pictures

Only one HDMI, Restrictive Freeview tuner defaults

In the all-important picture department, the LP32-TDR1 puts in a credible hi-def performance, but nothing to rival the frontrunners in this class

Humax LP32-TDR1 LCD television review


Humax has produced some of the more successful PVRs over the last year so it's no real surprise to see the name behind the feature-rich LP32-TDR1. This 32" LCD is most notable for the inclusion of a built in PVR sporting a generous 160GB hard drive and...

Impressive performance from the digital tuner, PVR integrates well, decent range of features

High definition and audio performance could be better, no twin-tuner capabilities for synchronised recording / time-shifting

Those choosy about performance might find the LP32 a little lacking, but in terms of offering a nice range of features for the average standard definition user it

Humax LP32-TDR1 32in LCD TV & PVR


Humax has packed a lot of functionality into this 32in TV and kept the price affordable.

Inevitably there are limitations to what this HDD system can do; you can’t, say, record HD material from external AV sources like a Sky HD receiver or Blu-ray player. But it will record absolutely anything you like from the built-in Freeview tuner.

Humax's clutter-busting LCD comes with a built-in Freeview PVR, bargain price and some sharp styling. But can its picture match the CV?

A stylish and impressive TV and PVR combo for the price – just don't expect the earth when it comes to performance

Humax LP32-TDR1 review


A good budget television for people who want an LCD for standard-definition TV but aren't too bothered about high-definition material. The built-in Freeview PVR is an added bonus that will make it attractive to those who want an all-in-one system

Built-in PVR ; Standard-definition picture quality ; Ease of use ; Price

HD picture is a little lacking ; Twin tuner receiver is slightly limited ; Poor viewing angle

Ultimately, if you're trying to cut down on the clutter in your front room, buying this TV with a built-in Freeview PVR will be just what the home electronics doctor ordered. Otherwise, take a look at some of the other PVR-less options available

Humax LP32-TDR1


Don't expect the earth at this money you shouldn't and you won't be disappointed

Built-in PVR and digital tuner; smart looks; decent performance; good price

Picture lacks the class of some rivals; max length recordings lack some composure

Consumer review by:



Excellent picture and great sound quality, packed full of features - as good as others I looked at which were twice the price. Has a large Hard Drive for plenty of hours of recording too

None I've encountered as yet
