Rated 3 out of 5 by from HR599D - Pros and Cons Hi all, this is the first time I have written a review of any product, so I'll try and put in both the good and the not so good I have discovered with this device. Overall I would recommend this product, but if you are a techno-head, I think you would find some of the idiosyncrasies annoying enough to buy a different one. Pros: - Well priced for the amount of features - Picture quality is excellent - Very intuitive (didn't really need the manual# - Able to playback files from PC using wireless - this is really handy feature. - Easy to copy to USB device - Easy to create directories to categorise your programs on the hard drive - Easy to program to record of the Guide Menu or from the Recording Menu - Very easy process to update the firmware - if you have an wireless conection to your PC, you can get automatic internet update. Loved this feature. Cons - Funny noises on start-up - Takes a while to actually get to the menu, so if you want to record something quickly, if it's not actually on ... forget it ... or just miss the first #almost# minute of the program - Sometimes when recording a program using the quick record function #from the guide), it would actually record the same program twice ... easy to delete ... just annoying - when viewing anything from the aforementioned directories, the machine would automatically default to using subtitles. Again ... easy to turn off ... just annoying. Also, it would sometimes re-activate when going to adds. - Sometimes when playing back from the PC, the DVD Player would 'hang'. When this happened, it would sometimes take several minutes before I could actually turn it off. - Some DVD movies would take up to a minute or more to actually read and appear on screen. I found this with a couple of Disney movies when trying to keep the natives from getting restless ... - The guide usually didn't contain much information on many of the up-coming programs Also, I don't know if this is a product of the television networks, but I could never get the program recording to consistantly come up with the correct name from the guide. I tried to manually change the time so it would match up the channels from which I would regularly record, but I found that the timings from other stations would vary, so I would end-up having to rename the files recorded off different channels. I think this is more a television network issue, but it is really annoying to the individual who just wants to record the programs, and watch them when they can without having to extend the process by renaming 50% of the recorded programs or more. Overall, I would recommend the product for the average user.
