Not bad, but I don't think it has a dtt tuner which means a separate set top box and no access to the simple recording of the dtt guide functions offered by most hdd recorders.

Still a decent bit of kit if you want to convert your old VHS tapes to DVD on the cheap

With freeview and/or HDMI or a better price, this would be scorching, but as it is, may be of use for those who are not in a freeview area/use sky a lot.

PS I think this item would be worth an extended warranty - 3 functions to me means 3 times as likely it will fail on 1 or more. I wonder are there any aftermarket comapnies who do cheap extended warranties?

Other than premium brands like Topfield, tell us what isn't? Limits choice a bit ;-(

I personally use Humax which I think are originally Korean and issue firmware updates regularly, let's face it so called "premium brands" are not much more expensive these days

This deal is also available at instore

I don't really know much about dvd players, recorders, etc. but I'm thinking of getting this for the parents. They have a lot of VHS tapes which they want to playback and want to record from the Sky Digital too, maybe even some VHS to DVD transfering.

Would this be ideal for this use? And is the price a good deal... I see it has only reached 9 degrees in 3 days

Well, we have used it a few times and it seems to do what it says... I have made a few copies of our wedding video and put them on dvd. All of it seems to work fine.

Thanks mate. I went for it (for the parents). Hopefully I won't become Tech Support!lol
Thanks OP.

To get 10 hours of recording on a 12 cm DVD will hardly be worth watching. Even at 3 hours the quality is very inferior to VHS recordings of 4 hours/tape (LP) - and tapes are far cheaper and even free to get (used once ones).
The unusual facility with this machine is that the HDD also has variable speeds for quality differences - never seen that before.

I saw this in Instore today and was gonna post the deal, but found this thread first. I have had one of these for 2 years and cannot recommend it highly enough!

The negative posts from logo junkies on this thread are a bit unfair, as it's definately not rubbish. It does exactly what it says...transfers from HDD↔VCR↔DVD with ease. I use it with Sky and it's a breeze to use. Even the lowest quality recording on the HDD is very watchable if you're not planning on transferring to DVD to keep.

Currently I have 174 programmes on the HDD with room for plenty more, and most importantly, no tapes lying around the house.

OK there's no Freeview in it, but a Freeview box can be had for £16 or less, and most people have one of these or Sky already.

I first saw it on QVC for £250 and Argos had it for £200, so the £99 price tag is a real bargain for a good peice of kit. If you're still thinking of getting one, I wouldn't hesitate before they're all gone.
