Can you set this to record remotely over the web?
For a similar price you can get the Panasonic DMR-PWT420 which includes a Blu-ray player and has similar features. All the new 2012 Panasonics have really quiet hard disks and are very stable. I am surprised What Hi-Fi have scored this Samsung so high as it would seem to be a 4 star item not 5.
Agree with the general overview but the one key point that they missed out is that harddrive is as noisy as hell, even when not recording or in playback. I have this in the bedroom, and I can hear it over the TV speakers. It drives me crazy and for that reason alone I wouldn't recommend it to anyone else.
Strange how this, and other Samsung PVRs, get such mediocre reviews on Amazon...
I'm hoping HD PVR prices will drop after the Olympics so will consider this along with the Humax Freeview HD one.
On my 2nd one after the 1st failed to record anything, Amazon replaced with no hassle. 2nd unit is great, it took a while for the smart features to come along but iplayer and lovefilm are now supported. Very pleased.

It has its drawbacks, but this Panasonic is easy to live with and has an insightful and dynamic picture performance – it’s a great set

A decent, affordable effort from Otone but sound quality is tainted by a distracting brightness
