Plug, play and record away, from a choice of 30 free-to-air channels. The EPG (electronic programme guide) makes it all painfully easy. The picture could be a little sharper but recordings are as faithful as an ugly old dog. You could do a lot worse than this jack-of-all-trades bargain.</p> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-pricing"><legend>Pricing</legend><div class="field field-type-number-float field-field-test-price"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> £0.00 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-ratings"><legend>Ratings</legend><div class="field field-type-hcmreviewrating-rating field-field-overall-rating"> <div class="field-label">Overall rating:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="hcmrating-default">10 stars</div> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>Review Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-verdict"> <div class="field-label">Verdict:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> This Goodmans recorder is a jack-of-all-trades bargain: one box to rule them all? </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /review/goodmans-gdvd305dvbt </div> </div> </div> http://www.stuff.tv/gdvd305dvbt/goodmans-gdvd305dvbt/review#comments GDVD305DVBT Goodmans PVRs and Set-top Boxes Mon, 18 Sep 2006 05:00:00 +0000 Simon Osborne-Walker 1886 at http://www.stuff.tv
