    Thomson DHD4000 review

    8  

    Thomson used to make TVs where you could clip on your own choice of coloured frame to match your decor. If only it did the same for its PVR, because this is an ugly box that seems more like an unfinished prototype

    We reviewed DigiFusion's FRT101 back in November, so you can imagine our surprise to discover that the added T suffix on this model doesn't just stand for Top Up TV compatibility - this is actually a completely new box!

    This Bush Freeview box, the DFTA1, is a stylish slimline affair, with rounded corners, a silver exterior and a blue fascia piquing interest. Other than that, it's business as usual

    Sagem ITD66 review

    7  

    Sagem's ITD66 gets off to a good start in this head to head by being much cuter aesthetically than its Fusion Digital rival. As well as being even smaller, it makes itself easier on your eye courtesy of a neatly curved fascia

    Thomson DHD4000 review

    10  

    We first reviewed Thomson's 40GB hard-disk-based Freeview receiver in August 2004. However, like many set-top boxes and hard-drive recorders, it accepts new software via aerial, so you wake up one morning

    With prices in freefall and a myriad of manufacturers churning out a vast selection of different models to suit different tastes, there's now no real reason to put off buying a Freeview box (unless you already have Sky or cable, of course)
