Humax-9300T Simply brilliant!
Have had one of these for about 18 months now, and it has never missed a beat, the fan was a bit noisy at first but an automatic over-air firmware upgrade sorted that out and it is now virtually silent.
This is my second Humax and they have both been great, in fact the first one is now still giving good service at my parents house, I only upgrades to this model to get the HDMI output with up scaling.
I did have a couple of other makes before these but to be honest they did not compare to the Humax for reliability and ease of use.
This is a first class product and I wouldn't consider any other make, Now looking at the Humax HD recorder.
