The review goes in to a good level of detail and includes a few pages of images. We won’t summaries it, just have a read/look yourself.

  1. Tony Hales Says:

    Panasonic are offering interest free credit on these boxes but it’s still a lot of money for a tiny hard drive.


  2. Al (Original) Says:

    I have to agree. It needs a 1TB drive at that price even allowing for the other features.


  3. Derek Says:

    Yep. I agree. The hard drive is small for HD recordings, and the broadcasters need to consider their copy restrictions. The market for this unit will be small if you cannot archive home recordings, especially given the size of the hard drive.


  4. Freddy Smith Says:

    Have to agree with Tony’s, Al’s & Derek’s comments. A 1TB HDD would have make this a killer Freesat recorder. Will have to see the actual on-line prices before considering if it is a worthwhile addition to the household gadetry. There is a danger that if the price is set too high then cutomers for the unit will be limited purely to the specialist market.


  5. Mike Says:

    Yes definately too much money, but it will be discounted soon i’m sure. Alternatively sit back and wait, allow the early adopters to take this box with the knowledge that a better version will be around soon.
