Croxton, Thetford GB Gadget lover
Very easy to setup and use even for someone who is a complete novice on anything technical.

The USB ports are a great asset. Be careful what external HDD you attach because all may not work with the device - heed the manufacturers advice on which external HDD you purchase.
Nothing to dislike.

Sutton Coldfield GB
Quality of picture excellent.
Recording two programmes at the same time very useful.
Not enough info about record modes.

Unable to turn off parental guidance code. Panasonic support say that this cannot be done.

Livingston GB Movie fan
Fantastic piece of equipment. You can record 2 programs and either watch a 3rd recorded or go back to your TV. With built in WiFi you can watch programmes on BBCi player. Not difficult to use, but I was replacing an old panasonic unit.
No HDMI cable in the box, but that is easy to get from Amazon. This recorder is one of those items you wish you had bought ages ago.
