TVonics DTR-Z250 review


A competent twin tuner PVR that packs a 250GB hard disk

Ease of use ; Well designed ; Twin tuners

Limited connections ; Picture noise

It might lack the extensive features of some rivals, but the generous price, neat styling and ease of use make this PVR an enticing proposition

TVonics DTR-Z250 review


Twin digital tuners and a 250GB hard drive, and all for under £180. Is this Freeview+ PVR too good to be true?

A great value PVR that combines the required functionality with top-notch performance

TVonics DTR-Z250 review


This great value Freeview 250GB personal video recorder combines the required functionality with top-notch performance

Slim profile ; plenty of hard disk capacity for the money ; excellent tuners and recordings ; simple usability

Lurid green menus seem a strange choice ; no HDMI or upscaling

A great value PVR that combines the required functionality with top-notch performance

Slow to switch on. Leave it alone to sort itself out before trying to change channels or select any function

Very good value for money! Installed 2 of these for customers and have had no comebacks.

Not HD but for the price you would not expect it!

Superb! Bought my mum one too when her dvd went on the blink after the digital switchover.

Tvonics DTR-Z250


Picture and sound quality are good. Silent operation. Good, solid remote control.

Tends to record repeats of programmes already recorded. Sound sometimes goes out of synch, but not as often as on some freeview boxes I have used.
