Panasonic over smart recorder

I found this recorder easy to set up and easy to use. I needed to access Amazon video as my tv isn't a smart one. I have had Panasonic products in the past and this product doesn't dissapoint. Very compact design.

Pros: Quiet, Ease to use, Good build quality, Value for money, Looks good Cons: None

Very Happy

Was considering the Humax but I have a Panasonic TV and Blu-ray so thought I would give it a try so I could use the Viera link features. Despite one or two poor reviews I found the box to be a breeze to use. Tuned in, updated and working in minutes. It's a lot quicker than my Virgin V-Box. Catch up TV is smooth and slick with loads of space for recordings.

Pros: Quiet, Ease to use, Good build quality, Value for money, Looks good Cons: None

Where's the mute button

We replaced our Sky box with this and are reasonably happy - I think the main thing is having to learn new procedures which we're picking up quickly. I'd like a quicker way of going from guide to HDD, I'd like a mute button on the remote. I'd like the volume button to be more responsive. I'd like the guide pages to be more colourful and not white writing on a pale grey background. I'd also like to be able to scroll through the guide page by page not one channel at a time - these are all things we miss from the Sky box. Having said all that it doesn't keep cutting out as the sky box did, I certainly enjoy not paying the Sky money and as we get used to it we getting quicker at moving through the different screens and knowing which button to press, we've only had it set up for a week. I like it.

Pros: Good build quality, Looks good, Quiet, Value for money

Brilliant purchase

Exactly what we wanted without being tied to monthly fees. Easy to set up for basic use and only using for basic watching and recording at the moment as one of the children will give us a crash course in the other functions. Really pleased with our choice.

Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good, Quiet, Value for money Cons: None
