Rather tempting. Do you have the exact model number? I am guessing this is single tuner/lnb.

Excellent deal, will have a look in a Tesco store tomorrow.

i believe its a recorder that has twin tuners.

Its instore & not online so cant tell. Tesco have been getting rid of their freesat boxes so I presume its just priced low to get rid.

Argos selling on ebay for £120 is the next cheapest.

still £129 at winchester but they do have the freeview non sat one for £79.99 so might just be the one shop got it wrong lol just my luck

worth getting for me to try out freesat at home and if I like it I could sell this and save up for the Humax! Hot

Which Store did you see this in?

Prices are set by head office and get communicated electronically to stores. One store cannot get the price wrong. The only control they have over pricing is with the yellow reduction stickers or a manual override at the till.

Dont know then maybe the poster got them confused freesat and normal freeview recorder or it was just my luck to get a tight till operator lol

Goodmans.....................haha................

These are so cheap because the goodmans/grundig/bush epg cannot be trusted and therefore it can't be trusted to do the job it was designed for. I would love a freesat recorder at this price, as I can't afford a humax, but my head tells me these are a waste of time (while my heart is saying go for it).

Still voted hot, even if I'm too scared to buy one myself.

Same box apart from it having a bigger hard drive as the argos bush one

Quite good box lots of these boxes branded as bush grundig ect fan bit noisey other wise great box better pic quality better than expensive humax bargain if you can get one for this price

Why is this going so hot? I posted the same box for just £38 extra and the general opinion was "save your money and get a humax" ?

maybe cause its 38 extra is a good guess

lulz.. voted hawt.

Not bad. Might have been interested if I hadn't just picked up a Humax Freesat-HDR for £129.97 from PCWorld.

It was the last one on clearance, but it was brand new and not a display model.

for those of you that don't know there is a new freesat standard out now, boxes are starting to come out, its called the G2 standard: joinfreesat.co.uk/ind…and

maybe because at this price you could compare it to a HD box, but with live pause and maybe trusting the thing to record one channel while you watch another? While I would not trust it with a series link, this price compares well with the RRP of a standsrd HD freesat box.

Redditch.


Its one of the big stores.

And it definitely was a freesat recorder.

Thanks.

£129.97 in Kettering store so not nationwide.

Tesco deals like this one are invariably limited to at most a handful of stores, so hot if it's in your local store but a wild goose chase if not. For that reason I'm out.

What are you on about? One person said 'save your money and get a humax' as you paraphrased it, that does not mean it was the general consensus. Regardless of the fact that two people said it was crap, your deal still got 46 degrees of heat. JUST a week after your deal was posted, this one comes out at £30.00 cheaper, of course it's going to be hot. As a fellow City fan I am embarrassed by you.

I ordered Humax FOXSATHD (without recording capabilities) from Amazon for 109.95 yesterday. Thinking of cancelling that order and getting this instead.

Just to understand, how 'unreliable' are these - at this price I think they are worth going for..

See hotukdeals.com/dea…01/

Hot, although I don't hold out much hope of my local store having any as they only seem to stock Freeview

Hot IF you can get it at this price

£129 in Tesco extra Baldock & I had it scanned to double check.

£129 in my local Tesco as well. Also got it scanned.

£129.99 in Tesco in Coulby newham Teesside and Stockton freeview goodmans were £79.99

Only a local deal by the look of things...is there really any point in pumping up the heat if it's not nationwide???

Oh, £129.99 in Slough branch too....

Got one scanned in Bromborough and it's £129.99
