"Surprisingly Efficient"4.5 starson by HDTV Addict
Pros: Flawless Setup for HDTV and PVR
Cons: Flimsy Front Doors
Summary: I bought this PC to record over the air HDTV, I do not have cable nor satellite subscription as I have been dissapointed with their set top boxes, extremely poor service and outrageous fees.
My main objective was to combine a new powerful PC for the family and record high definition tv programs without having to buy separate components and I found exactly what I was looking for on this HP system using Windows Media Center.
As you can tell I am thrifty, I try to get the biggest bang for my money and the HP has been an excellent investment, right out of the box.
I also have a wife that just wants to punch a button and enjoy her favorite tv program so I needed to make sure the new system would be easy to use otherwise I would be the one on the other side of the phone line telling her what to do or explaining why the system was not working.
The setup was easy, the HDTV tunner worked on the first try and we recorded our first show right after we connected the DVI cable to my TV. Thre is no difference at all between live tv and recorded tv, we love it!
