If you watch BBC1, then watch BBC2 you can go back to BBC1 and still rewind it, without setting a recording. You are able to watch the TV while reviewing the EPG. Have had good support when phoning about any issues. (Hard drive corrupted once, support was able to help me delete the data and have the drive fully functioning)… Read Full Review

I bought my Thomson from Dixons but at a reduced price due to it being out of box with no remote or instructions, with the correct remote it can do a lot, even including subtitles. I think it's a class act and overall very reliable as mine is now about two years old… Read Full Review

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder - the DHD4000 isn't as ugly as people say - especially when its behind smoked glass TV cabinet, the blue LEDs are quite nice. Some say the internal fan and hum of the hard drive is noisy but its not a problem for most, again, especially when its in a cabinet… Read Full Review

A super piece of kit, most of the bugs ironed out except for the overheating problem.
I am in two minds as to whether the limited (about 14 hrs) recording time is a good or bad thing. It sure makes you keep up with your recordings! (or transfer them to another recorder whilst you are doing something else)… Read Full Review

This Thomson DHD4000 is a high quality product I got on special offer from Argos so I'm well pleased, even though it has only 40gig. I had hoped that it would record from terrestrial & from Sky; not so, but that is my fault for not looking into it better, it does not detract from the quality & performance. I am still experimenting with the connections as I have a Sky box + a video/DVD combo attached too & the interaction via the scarts is not easy to foresee. Anyway buy one, if you can find one!… Read Full Review

A great box and recorder. The Thomson DHD4000 really feels like Sky+ in a freeview form. You can feel this will be a product built to last, and it loves to be used. With websites by Thomson and home users out there supporting this, and with auto software updates overnight, it's a breeze to maintain and modify. This stands alone as a box that can give you a good range of enjoyment options for Freeview channels. If you find one out there, buy one!! Nothing can touch this… Read Full Review

After a few months, I was looking for a new freeview box because my Goodmans GDB3 had a mind of its own and just did everything but work properly. I read about the Thomson DHD 4000 hard drive recorder on the net and found it in my local Argos for £99, and I got it there and then.
Within 10 minutes of getting home I was making a cup of tea because it was such a breeze to set-up, and it didn't require any input from me after pressing OK. Menus, Recording, Sky+. The feel to it all and a clear… Read Full Review

Just does the job very very well! All consumer goods should be this easy to use.
I'm sure in 5 years it will be out of date, but you can be 100% sure that nearlly every HD recorder around today, will also be out of date.
Stop worrying and buy it… Read Full Review

Thomson DHD 4000 - What can I say? This piece of kit is fantastic. Never let me down yet. Playback is excellent from programmes recorded. It is so much easier to use than most DVDRs. Instant record or you can set it up for a daily or weekly schedule. Sleek design with easy to navigate and understand remote. Simple. Well worth the money… Read Full Review

Being an ex-Sky+ user I was waiting and waiting for Panasonic to release the TUCTH100 to have the same functions on Freeview. Having waited for FOUR months I thought I'd give the Thomson DHD4000 a chance. This PVR is something else!! GREAT picture and sound-14 day planner (take note Sky) great menus and so easy to use. Panasonic have just lost a customer, as I will not part with the Thomson-and it is £100 cheaper!!… Read Full Review

The DHD 4000 is a PVR containing twin internal Freeview digital tuners enabling the unit to record two channels simultaneously or watch one and record another. It can even record two channels and playback a third simultaneously. You can pause the live feed to answer the phone or make tea, then resume upto 30 minutes later.
The picture quality is excellent. I watch through a 40 inch rear projector so any picture defects and artefacts are obvious. I can not see any problems.
The unit is small… Read Full Review
