For well under a grand you get an HD-ready, HDMI-equipped set with a built-in digital TV tuner and 160GB disk drive. In other words, pretty much all your viewing and recording needs in a single box.</p> <p>We all know that's no good if it looks like something put together on Scrapheap Challenge, but luckily that isn't the case here. Finished in a designer décor-pleasing black and silver, the Humax will slot into any self-respecting minimalist lounge, no problem. </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"> £700.00 </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">8 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"> A stylish and impressive TV and PVR combo for the price – just don't expect the earth when it comes to performance </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/humax-lp32-tdr1 </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/humax/humax-lp32-tdr1/review" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/humax/humax-lp32-tdr1/review#comments Humax LP32-TDR1 TVs 32" to 42" Wed, 31 Oct 2007 05:00:00 +0000 Simon Osborne-Walker 8175 at http://www.stuff.tv Humax F2-FOX-T http://www.stuff.tv/humax/humax-f2-fox-t/review <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> It likes to be known informally as ‘the fox’, but Humax’s cheeky set-top eccentric is far from all mouth and no trousers </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="582" height="308" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/humax_f2_size_10_0.jpg?1364300486" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>This budget Freeview box has long been one of our favourites and, and not just because of its name.
