So far So good. I ordered this item on Tuesday with free postage and it arrived on Wednesday!!Amazon – you are wonderfully fast.This unit is incredibly compact: 300mm x 150mm x 60mm high.It has a minimalist look which I really like:. Black glass and black brushed metal finish to the body. It looks and feels like a quality item although this is slightly let down by the badges of Freeview, HD, Rovi and the model number being emblazoned on the front right hand corner in white paint. That let’s it down slightly on looks for me.Out of the box comes a remote control, a co-axial cable, a power cable, batteries for the remote, the unit itself and a comprehensive instruction booklet. Unfortunately there is no HDMI cable although this is essential for the operation of the unit – which can only communicate via its HDMI slot to an HDMI slot on the TV. Given that the coaxial cable was included and the HDMI is essential, why not include a short one with the purchase?? We had to…

This was ordered to replace a Humax Fox-T2 which has gone rogue after about 18 months and now refuses to start-up. As availability of this item was constantly fluctuating over 2-3 weeks and was never available when I wanted to order one, I initially opted for an alternative model with built-in Blu-ray player and for a similar price. Features are similar and availability was immediate but it was found after two weeks’ of use to exhibit some poor modes of operation whereby replay of recorded programmes or externally stored media must always be from the beginning as there is no positional memory to allow restart from the point at which it was stopped. That had been returned and replaced with this as it has that desired feature.In some ways it is simpler to use than the Humax but requires a little more user input. Initial set-up was automatic and it searched for channels and saved them without any input by me. Network connectivity is either WiFi or wired, by choice, the latter…

Have been using for a few days now so this is an early review and not complete. Set up was straight forward and the link to Wi-Fi is simple and worked first time. If you already have a smart TV then Wi-Fi link is no great advantage since it does it in exactly the same way as a Panasonic smart TV and with no extension of the options that include I-player and Netflix (no LoveFilm). No option to record from the NET. HD reproduction seems every bit as good as HD TV.We’ve had a Humax PVR for some years and find the menus on the Panasonic seem less intuitive than those. For example having recorded programmes with series record have found when deleting individual programmes that we delete the series record too! Also when fast forwarding prefer to see X2, X4 , x32 etc rather than multiple arrows.I am sure that most of these niggles will be overcome when more familiar with the menus.
