Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well. Straight forward to use. I’ve had this for only 2 weeks now and am quite happy with it as I seldom seem to watch a programme live! My only comment is the TV guide with its black background and narrow font text which isn’t instantly easy to read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good solid PVR I purchased this human pvr a few weeks ago to replace my previous one, also Humax. The device was easy to set up and my old remotes still work with the new one although some features don’t work. I found that the functionality of my new pvr is not so comprehensive as my old one, but having said that I am more than happy with my purchase. The only improvement that Humax could make would be to replace the traditional hard drive with a solid state one as this would or should reduce the background hum that emanates from the device. My purchasing experience withRicher Sound was excellent as usual and delivery was very quick.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Software not a patch on the freesat version We've had our terrestrial set up for nearly a year now - aerial in the attic, the Humax 500T to replace the Humax freesat HDr 1100. Nothing wrong with the old freesat box, but when it rained the signal went - so annoying. And I can see the transmitter from the garden. So bite the bullet, spend the cash. The Richer Sounds rep said the software was the same as on our old box - it really isn't. It's way more clunky, less instinctive... the programme search is primitive, the rogramme guide is ugly and less informative. Recording controls are easy to get wrong, lots of other niggles. Having said that you can record as many programmes at the same time as you want - well, I've not come up against a limitation yet. I guess three at a time is common here. Couldn't do that with freesat. My choice was between this and a Panasonic. I believed the salesman. Oh well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and install for the over 70's Bought by our son and daughter in law to replace our old and failing Humax. Delivery was quick and installation easy. We're very happy with this new and tiny box and all of the additional facilities it offers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better features than the competition I selected this machine as having the best options available. It is not quite as compatible with my Panasonic TV, but the additional facilities makes up for this. Their on-line advice service is excellent, too

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact and does the job I have only recently bought this and only just set it up. Now it is set up all the features I have used so far are working well and it will definitely be an improvement on the last one. I had one or two set up issues, where it was not quite obvious what I should do next, but I got there in the end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does everything it promised - beautifully! I bought this to replace my ee television box which was being withdrawn.. It was easy to purchase with Richer and was delivered bang on schedule. I installed it myself without a hitch and am more than pleased with the quality, ease of operation and access to a whole raft of programs and services which were previously unobtainable via ee. Brilliant picture/sound quality. I would heartily recommend for anyone looking for a. Freeview box/recorder and, whilst not the cheapest, it is definitely good value for money

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ensured reliability. I already have two Humax PVR's and wanted third. It's obvious I would buy another Humax as the other two are so reliable, easy to use with all the necessary features for recoding and play back. The reason for three; his, hers and ours.
