Easy to set up and great that you can connect to Wi-Fi. Its very quiet when in use and you barely notice it. Compact and tucks in nicely under the tv. Love how it switches off when its not been used for a while and you dont need to keep it in standby mode. There is nothing bad to say about this product at all. I love it

ant's machine

Well,what can you say about a machine that's just what you've ordered. It's smart,and very versatile,small enough to fit in the most cramped space,does everything you want,simple to use and set up and so quiet you would not know it's there.Why would not everyone want it? Exellent unit..

Top quality product

Bought this to supplement the Panasonic TV in our caravan. As we are confident in Panasonic products, had DVD hard drive recorder for years, had no hesitation in buying this. Easy to set up, excellent picture quality and compact.


Great Freeview play box. Enables me to series link all my favourite shows and watch whenever. Pause and rewind live TV. Connects to my TV. No need for expensive cable costs anymore

Lasted less than 6 months

Having read mixed reviews on this item elsewhere I decided to take a chance as it matched my Panasonic TV. Was fine at first apart from some limitations of the EPG. Now having issues with playback when trying to watch recorded programs. From experience its a faulty hard drive. Been trying to ring Panasonic support for 2 days but its constantly engaged. Should have bought a Humax.

Everything you need

I only have the option for sky subscription in my area and as a result receive no discounts or deals... So I purchased this product as an alternative as sky is way over priced. This provides everything from recording one channel whilst watching another to an App store with a wide range of Apps. It's very easy to use and set up, with the built in WiFi and the quick set up I was up and running in minutes. Also the remote can link to you TV wich means you only need one remote wich was an extra bonus.
