    Half Functional

    posted by number4 on 03/03/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Works just fine playing just about all formats, not H.264, but plays all the formats listed in the description. There's little to no audio lag until you get to some higher quality videos but mostly unnoticeable. Easy to use interface and quite easy to intal...
    Cons:
    THE RECORD FUNCTION DOESN'T WORK! Don't buy this as a recorder, the recorded video goes blank every couple of minutes and comes...

    what a time saver!

    posted by ARMCHAIRQB16 on 10/26/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    This exactly what is needed for a "entertainment" library. I love this DVR for loading my library of Avi movies instead of burning copies of my DVD's and CD's. Also love the record option when you don't have the time to watch it on T.V. Comes with...
    Cons:
    Was a little disappointed that it didn't have a HDMI option on it,after doing alot of research on DVR units it seems that you b...

    Just get one

    posted by GarethWilliams on 08/15/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    The first thing I noticed was the build quality, it really really suprised me, this is a cheap unit but the build quality is excellent. The instruction manual is very easy to follow, and it (so far) has played every avi file I have transfered on it with zer...
    Cons:
    The fan is a little noisy, but in no way distracting. It would be nice to have a USB port to transfer files from my portable HD...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    also plays video_ts files (menus within the file aren't useable, but select the main play file). waiting on an adapter to try the record facility, but someone's left details below. have tried using (takes sata/sataII only) 40GB samsung spinpoint, 320GB se...
    Cons:
    not really a con but thought i'd mention - doesn't play iso's or variations of (i never expected it to though) mine's got teen...
