Advantages: Easy set up, nice remote. multiple recording
Disadvantages: Noisy, Doesn't say how much space is on hard drive
It was incredibly easy to set up and didn't require much input from me. Simply scanned the channels and connected!
This model is extremely noisy and can be a problem if your watching tv quietly (for somebody sleeping, for example) as you can't hear it over the "hummm" of the box. There is an update for this, which gets rid of this problem, but you shouldn't need to download an update in order to make it quiet in the first place.
The USB port can only be used for displaying photos as far as I am aware. It ignored any video files that were on my USB pen drive.
The picture in picture option is really handy. You can have the sports channel playing in the corner while your kids or whatever watch something different.
The hard drive is massive, holding upto 200 hours. This makes it suitable for recording entire series and keeping your own personal on demand collection.
All in all, it looks good and does the job. The picture quality is excellent. Just the matter or the noise/noise update is my only discrepancy.
Summary: Works really well, especially for families as programming clashing is easily solved
