Had to get it replaced on first day because power supply failed. Not user friendly, too many yes/no answers to do simple things. Not logical in commands, ie the buttons you would think would work don't

Very good quality picture, and full recording is fine. It is inexpensive

It is so complicated to use: simply recording a programme is complicated, and requires a manual after several attempts. Same for when you need to watch the programme, then erase it, is a complicated process. Why is there not a "simple to use manual"...

Small attractive design. Good clarity of image and sound

All Phillips instructions refer to the MENU key but on the remote it is labelled HOME. For someone who is not technical this is not good
