Good: Easy to use
Bad: Have not found a bad point yet, I am pleased to say.
Comment: Love this machine, easy to use and lots of great extras, it's Sky+ for freeview. A lot of machine for your money, I truly think this deserves five stars.
Good: Cheapish, simple to get to grips with
Bad: Only recording 1 channel at once, flaky software (still after umpteen OADs), weak interface

Good: Ease of set up; picture quality; quiet
Bad: User Guide; interface; uglier than my butt
