Many Freeview PVRs are so busy cramming in outputs and tuners they neglect the most important thing – ease of use. So when a simple, well-considered product like the DVR 64250T comes along you just want to jump on it like it’s a lifeboat.
From the set-up process, which walks you through the introductory phase with clear, graphical menus, through to the similarly assured EPG, it’s all so easy.
It ain’t pretty
If anything’s worth complaining about it’s the slightly tacky build quality, both of the main unit and the remote control, which sports horrible squishy buttons set in a plasticky, cheap casing.
You’d be embarrassed to sit the Sagem next to Humax’s shiny, lovely-looking PVR-9200T but then the Humax costs £60 more and holds 90GB less than Sagem’s plain Jane.
