Samsung STB-E7500 review

 

Unlike subscription-based TV services like Sky or Virgin, there isn't an official Freeview set-top box for recording all the shows you haven't got time to watch when they go out live. That's why there's a huge market for products like Samsung's...

Two HD tuners, great smart features and DLNA streaming make this a high-quality PVR

A Smart and sophisticated 500GB Freeview PVR

Generous feature list ; Slick, speedy operation ; Superb live and recorded picture quality

Cumbersome web browser ; Not enough catch-up TV ; Online content not as well integrated as YouView

A Freeview Dual Tuner PVR : Samsung STB-E7500 PVR

 

Bringing together the various streams of entertainment content that is readily available is the stated aim of a black box from Samsung.

The Samsung STB-E7500M is a Freeview dual tuner personal video recorder (PVR) box that comes with a built-in 500GB hard drive for storing content. While not the smallest device of its type, this reflective black box, with dimensions of 330 x 270 x 45mm...

Samsung STB-E7500 review

 

It's no longer enough for a PVR to simply receive and record digital TV. These days they're all-singing, all-dancing multimedia hubs, with networking, web content, Blu-ray players and whatever else manufacturers can shove under the bonnet. The...

Plentiful features Dazzling hi-def pictures Fast, attractive operating system Clunky web browser

No ITV Player No SCART output

Picture and sound reproduction is excellent

Not user friendly - instruction book misses out valuable points - still trying to work out how to delete a recording we have already watched.
