Good: Full of great features
Bad: Not a lot - maybe it's life expectancy
Comment: The recorder not only looks good it has great easy to use functions, probably not used by most owners.
The tuner picks up freeview really well and its a doddle to record from the guide.The picture and audio output quality is fantastic.
The recordings on the hard drive can be easily edited (remove the commercials etc) but 250GB is probably too small for a lot of users like me, must go to 500GB minimum next time.
Its easy to compile and transfer hard drive recorded programs to disc, the high speed dubbing is great ,probably too easy? i have amassed loads of archive discs to watch on the many rainy days we get.
The downside is i have knackered the DVD drive to the point that it is now on the 3rd drive , maybe you are only expected to record to disc once a week ? just as well it came with a 2 year warranty, hopefully i will get 3 years use out of it before it needs the 4th drive, or i replace it with a Freeview HD /Blu Ray version.
Overall I really enjoy using this machine.
