3 out of 5 eggsWorks great until it breaks

Pros: Excellent device, that I used with my projector. Did exactly what I needed it to do

Cons: It does not last. I have been through two of these device. The first lasted about 14 months, and the second about 9 months. I did not even use the DVR function on it, it just decided to stop working one day.

Other Thoughts: Did the job and worked great until it decided to stop.

1 out of 5 eggsLESS THAN 1.5 year life span

Pros: Did what I wanted it to. It was a cheap way to get local channels when I "cut the cord" and cancelled my Cable TV. I purchased a 1TB USB drive so I could record and play back later.

Cons: Not the most intuitive, but I figured it out without too much difficulty. Gave only 1 star because I purchased it 5/30/14 and it died 10/5/15. Emailed their customer support and was told it Only has 1 year warranty. Was offered $8 off (from the price of a new item) on a REFURBISHED item... Joy!!! (Sarcasm).

Other Thoughts: I MIGHT.... MIGHT try another unit, but only because there arent too many options that are cheap.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Affordable PVR Anywhere

Pros: Very reliable.
Outstanding price
Guide works great
Never miss a recording
All 3 still till work well after 21 months of ownership

Cons: Wish recordings were named for the show recorded
No "commercial" skip, can only fast forward through them

Other Thoughts: All 3 units are still working well after 21 months of ownership. I have never had a problem with them. My other PHD-VRX dvr cost over $200 and has had major issues from day one. I just use it now for the clock. So overall these MediaSonic models are pretty fantastic. At less than $50, they are outstanding bargains.

1 out of 5 eggsBroken After 8 Months

Pros: When the unit was working, simple to use, setup straight forward, picked up channels better than my TiVo,

Cons: Broke after 8 months. Tried calling Mediasonic using the phone number on their website. The phone number just rings and rings. Tried several times. Very disappointed.

1 out of 5 eggsGreat tell It just brakes

Pros: All features work great just as described.

Cons: Just at the 18 month age it fried shows splash screen then nothing.

Other Thoughts: By all the other reviews I see that the unit only last a little over a year. They have a newer model out now that does not have component video output just hope it works as good as this Model HW150DVR and last longer than 18 months.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat until it breaks

Pros: Was cheap. Did everything I needed it to.

Cons: Lasted 1 yr 6 mos. Seems like these breaking before 2 yr of ownership is common.

Other Thoughts: Would like to buy another perhaps, but wish I knew they had fixed the hardware to not make it so fragile.
