 Easy HDD installation and format

| | See all StephenWort's reviews (1)

Installation of HDD/formatting can be done thru HMR-700A unlike other Media players that should be done in your PC and deleting/editing titles also can be done itself. This means that this unit is designed to support more features on its own. I have recorded around 40 sky titles and converted to mpg files to transfer to a separate HDD, that is a very unique feature. Well-designed editing menus of the recorded contents. Flaw is you can not transfer more than 5GB file directly from your PC to HMR but only via NTFS partition in a PC HDD , which I hope a future firmware upgrade will solve. I will keep an eye on ellion site for further firmware updates

 Reliable & Easy to navigate with the latest firmware upgrade

I have downloaded the latest firmware A318HP_S1001_081231a.zip from the Ellion Digial Incorp site and it has changed the whole main menu screen i.e. an initial main menu screen when pressing the Guide button. This new GUI is designed more user-friendly than the previous one and makes me navigate thru each menus much quicker and easier. I also felt that all functions have enhanced. The remote response time became much quicker and the wired LAN connection became very solid. I really appreciate the Ellion support team's efforts to keep loading enhanced version of firmwares and I am so glad to be a owner of the HMR-700A with continuous support to keep the unit progressing.

 it's a great product - buy one

I've had mine for about 6 months...I have a 350 GB internal hitachi drive that I bought with it and connected an external 1TB HDD. I record tv and pause live tv using the 350GB internal HDD and have all my mps and DVD movies on the 1TB HDD. No more discs....this is the future! It's easy to use and looks great too. If I were to improve the product I would want to have 'random' play available when playing mp3's and a search tool for searching by artist, genre etc... at the moment the only way to search files is alphabeticaly. I searched for months and comparred all the like products out there. This one stood out for me. The customer service from ellion is first class.

 Do not buy this item

Before buying this item, ask ellion Customer Services a question. Any question. You'll get the response.....Please be kindly understood it may takes few hours or days to provide you with answer according to the inquiry contents.... and that'll be the only response you'll get.


Record something from CamCorder and then try to copy it over to the FAT partition and it hangs, creating multiple large files of the same content.

My remote has to be within 6 inches of the box, and even then it barely works.

This item is a complete waste of money!!! Be warned.
