Consumer review (

I like this one that much I bought my mother the same model.


as the title says we both got one each and we have had no problems and my one has been out side under the patio with my LG flat screen.I'm not an LG fan but this is to me was a good buy.

Poor performance for the price, failure to adequately instruct users via manual.


I have had the HR699D model for approximately 1 year. My experience has been soured by a few factors that I consider critical: 1) There is a lapse of approx. 6 seconds between button pressings! This is extremely frustrating in many circumstances; for...

Not much at all really.

Very expensive, way too slow to respond to commands and very user unfriendly.

They know it is rubbish!


I have been frustrated by this machine for months now. Like everyone else here, the product is really great on paper but so poor in practice. I called up LG Customer Service to talk about the slow response of the machine to the remote and they know...

The specifications of the machine

Poorly implemented software and frustrating response delays!!

Terrible :-( So confusing and didn't record properly!


We ended up taking it back. Programmed to record same show over 5 nights and it recorded something different every night. No Editing facility. You can't watch something while it is recording! Really needs a "chase play" option. If you are watching...

LG have over engineered this one.


We had purchased the LG MS408D media station a couple years ago, it had so many issues it was replace on the 4th visit to LG repair centre (out side of original warranty time) We had extended warranty and that paid off. They offered us the LG HR698D as...

It has a confusing menu. It does stuff in the background that is annoying eg we have to turn it off to use our wireless internet - SO we cant tape movies in the evening if we r using our computers. It takes 3 minutes to load. heap of rubbish. do not...

Expensive and does not do the job

Heap of rubbish I wish I could afford to buy another brand and throw it out

Poor choice


I bought this product to replace my LG RH397D, which broke 1 month out of the extended warranty period. Depite my reservations on build quality, I bought the HR698D, which offered all of the features of my previous model (now defunct), with extra...

Offers lots of features at a reasonable price

Poor usability. Technology is inferior to earlier, cheaper models
