Sagemcom RTI95-500 Smart 500GB Freeview+ HD Digital TV Recorder 1.9 5 8 8
Perfect for me!, I have found this product a very useful thing for recording anything, very easy to set up,instructions very clear, all of the free view channels access able with the added bonus of high definition where available, a great thing to have. 25 June 2014
Very poor product After 13 months this unit has totally failed. Will not boot up at all after numerous attempts at disconnecting from the mains. It is now connected to the dustbin. Before this failure it would often not record series linked programmes. It would give on screen messages that hard drive was full, yet only 70% usage was indicated on menu. Sagemcom help line said a total format would be required to solve problem. Not much use when you have a library of programmes you wish to watch Programme ends would often be missed. 19 June 2014
very pleased kids love it. Just purchased this, the kids love it, especially the TV record option, if they are happy I am happy. It came with all the cables and took 10 minutes to set up and seems very straightforward to use. 13 June 2014
Don't buy this We have had this free view recorder for 4 months and it has been nothing but trouble. It is very slow booting up (from standby); programs that are set to record via series link do not always record; when pausing live TV, the box will often revert to real time playback, rather than picking up from where we paused; and, the box has become increasingly prone to freezing - when this happens it does not respond to the remote control and the only option is to unplug it and start again. We have sent it back to JL and hope to get a refund so we can buy a more reliable alternative. 09 June 2014
Dont go near this product Its the worst product ive ever purchased!! Keep having to turn on and off to re boot and then for no reason, although showing disc occupancy, all recordings have gone. Dont waste your money its total rubbish PS I gave no stars but wouldnt let me input so sadly have had to give it 1 star 10 May 2014
Disappointing. Firstly, the handset is not the one pictured in the manual. Several keys are labelled differently e.g. the 'Home' key on the handset is 'Menu' in the manual. Setting up the box was quite straightforward, and picture quality was good. However, after a few days the box would not respond to the handset and had to be rebooted. Then several programmed recordings failed to record, even though series linked. I will be returning the box to JL in the next day or so. 08 April 2014
Crash Some decent features but first box regularly crashed when in standby mode. The red light would flash continuously and no signal was found on TV - remedied only by unplugging. This fault occurred 15 times in three weeks. Sagemcom support offered no suggestion and eventually offered an exchange. Instead I arranged for JL to exchange it for an identical machine. After one week it also went back, the same fault having occurred five times. There were a number of smaller problems but I never got round to requesting answers to these because of the main fault. JL replaced the second box with a Panasonic DMR-HWT130EB - it is very good! I must complement JL on their handling of my problem. 06 April 2014
Very disappointed Would not touch this brand again. After having problems within weeks of purchase. Sagemcom will exchange the item with a refurbished box and not like for like. John Lewis are even surprised at the outcome and tried to get me a new box but no luck. So beware. 13 March 2014
