Advantages: Easy to use, Nice User Display, Good Storage Amount.
Disadvantages: Minor problem with recording
I got bought this as a gift for my birthday mainly because my partner had sky and didnt like the fact he couldnt record the TV at mine. At first I found it hard to remeber I could rewind pause and record and didnt really use it. However now i use it every day and often record a lot of my favourite tv programs. I found this works well with my TV a LG and wasnt hard to set up atall. The menu is very easy to follow and understand. The remote is equally easy to use and doesnt have to many buttons which can make it confusing. The quality of the programmes recoreded are of high standard and I dont have a main outside Ariel attached only a household plug in the back.
When you need to retune it does this fast usually in 5 minutes, I can also add parental controls i dont need that option at the moment however will be useful in the future. It has a schedule feature which means i can see what i have due to record which is useful because i dont have to flick through and check. The volume that you can record on the box is good as well and often i have films and series on there, I usually delete programmes off once a week which recording a programme each day.
I only had 1 problem with my box which was when it stopped recording series links and i had to record individually however it was an easy fix which was solved by restarting the box.
Overall i am very satisfied with my freeview recording box. Easy to use, virtually problem free.
Summary: Easy to use recording box, great value for money
