It's the "digital switchover" in our region next month, and this looks to be the best value Freeview HD recorder as it is a good brand and has decent-ish reviews (apparently the picture quality is fantastic, but channels take a few seconds to change annoying some users). £179.99 delivered. 3.53% Topcashback too.
A 5-year service plan covering "breakdown, failure or mishap" is £59.99 extra, which at a third of the device price is too expensive in my opinion, but may suit those who want peace of mind.
If anyone knows any better deals than this, please reply in the comments below or post them to this site. I expect the Humax and Sony devices are a bit better, but they are £100 more.
