Found 14th Jan 2015
Just bought a Humax HDR-1800T Freeview+HD 320gb twin tuner PVR in Sainsbury, Arnos Court, Bristol for £99.
Most places have them marked up at £149.99 (inc Sainsbury before reduction) and the cheapest I can find online is £135.
They had a couple more on the shelf @ 09:30.............

Yes, it did. But my son said that I should have it on 24/7. An way, Humax arranged return and I was refunded. Signal is a funny business. But that was 3 or 4 years ago. Now, I don't want live TV. I just catch up with The papers, some gardening programmes and weather on iplayer! I take great exception to the BBC executives throwing money at one another - making colleagues redundant and instant release of cash and then rehireing them again ...

I've had an older humax pvr for many years. Its been faultless.

National deal. Just got last one from Cameron Toll, Edinburgh to replace a 9200T.

Thanks.

had mine about a year now, a few niggles, but its OK...
picked up the extra cover from Argos at same time so not worried if fails big time........

Excellent advice when buying any electrical equipment, thanks for passing that on to those of us who'd never thought of it.

Having owned 6 Humax PVRs within our family, from the first version to the current Youview machine, we've never had any significant problems (ie those that need more than a reboot to correct).

Humax remains the best PVR brand out there and as their prices gradually drop they become more of a bargain.

Have a Humax Freesat Plus box in living room and bought a Goodmans for another room. Having used the Goodmans for a couple of weeks, I now realise just how superior the Humax one is. I have no hesitation in recommending Humax.

Great find, OP

One left on the shelf, I just had the other

HD and only 320GB doesn't seem a winning combination!

IMHO you are better off forking out £29 quid more and getting the critically acclaimed HDR FOX T2!
Once you flash the hacked firmware onto it nothing can touch it with regards to Freeview HD imho, I bought a referb well over 2 years ago and it's been fantastic.

This is where I got my one and it arrived as-if brand new, search this forum for info and links on setting up the hacked extra features!!

80 hours of HD recording time is plenty more than I'll ever need

You may think that but it soon goes, especially with series link!

This is my 5th humax, I'm an early adopter, 320gb is plenty for me.

just picked an hdr 1800t up from sainsburys st clares £99

I've had 2 Humax boxes and both are fantastic. Had a virgin media Samsung box before I switched too freesat. The Samsung Virgin media box was so bad I had to reset it once a week. Goodbye Virgin media.

For £15 more on eBay, you can get a 500GB YouView box instead (branded as BT but manufactured by Humax).

It is much smaller and quieter (no fan) and has access to all the main catch-up services, plus others including Netflix and Now TV.

Granted, it's not "new", it'll be a refurbished customer return. However, the one I received appeared to be unused and is in perfect working order.

Hope this helps someone.

This ^

I've recently bought 3 of these off ebay
1 for me 2 for Christmas presents
All brand new sealed
The most I paid was £95.00 delivered (and that included a BT Home Hub 5)
The other two, think I paid ~ 85 collected
Fantastic bit of kit 500GB and about half the size of the one in the OP

I agree got one off Gumtree for £15 it was the latest model dtr-t2100. Really fast works with all my internet channels on talktalk along with all the extra services such as nowtv, Netflix etc.
