Sharp TU-R160H Freeview Personal Video Recorder review

 

This is Sharp's first stab at the PVR market to accompany a range of high performance LCD TVs. Following up on the recent success of rivals such as the Humax PVR9200T it offers similar features in the 160GB hard drive and built-in Freeview tuner, but...

160GB hard drive for up to around 90 hours of TV, attractive front panel design, effective remote and panel controls

You can’t record or time-shift two channels at once, below average picture quality, frustrating time-shifting functionality, no common interface for PayTV

The performance of the Sharp PVR falls short in too many critical areas to encourage a recommendation

Sharp TU-R160H review

 

Sharp's TU-R160H is a standard twin tuner recorder that does what it says on the box. It's easy to use and effective but light on features and the design appears to have been borrowed from a budget model

Stylish front panel ; Quiet operation ; Records subtitles ; Decent TV and recording performance

Average build quality ; No CI card support ; Basic functionality

Recordings are faithful to the original and don't introduce any flaws that didn't already exist. The single quality mode means that all copies are recorded at the same standard, but hard drive space is consequently limited

AN EASY TO USE AND FUSS FREE TUNER

 

A good little tuner, I purchased it direct from Sharp in thier sale and paid 149.99. I note that there are several versions of this, all using the same casing, branded Hitachi, Goodmans etc.

Very easy recording, just find the programme using the guide, highlite it and press record. The playback quality is very good, colours a bit more pronounced than my JVC LT-26DX7BJ, however the TV cant take you direct to a programme from the EPG so the...

So far, none, after a month's use.
