Hitachi HDR5T01 500GB Freeview+ HD Smart Digital TV Recorder 3.9 5 134 137
Poor The box was not sealed up when we picked it up, Had to take it back day after Could not set it up, Things missing ?? ( got my money back ). DO. NOT agree with terms and conditions Had to tick the box to sent this message, 20 May 2015
This was bought for an older gentleman.He is very pleased with the ease of use and looks forward to many years service as it is a good named brand. 19 May 2015
this product is disappointing Easy to install and get going however there are a few things that make me regret my choice the layout of the remote control is poor, regularly used buttons are on the bottom and awkward to press the main problem with it (and it appears I am not alone) is series linking...I have now missed programmes I thought were series linked but after recording the first one subsequent programmes are not recorded, despite showing in the epg as being series linked. Giving it one more week before returning 30 April 2015
Really good Very pleased with my purchase , Very easy to use . 28 April 2015
Awful product I found the external quality good but it suffers from internal issues. It regularly freezes, it slows down over time if you don't turn it off at the mains which indicates the internal memory is leaking and if you want to record 2 channels it slows down considerably when you want to scroll through the guide it can take forever. 11 months in and it has started switching itself off and back on again. Avoid this product as it has serious flaws. 26 April 2015

I want to archive programs once recorded and to be able to
change the hard disc once full.
I do not want to erase the recordings but add to a collection by
substituting discs.

Answer: 
Hello, thank you for your question. Unfortunately you are unable to replace the hard disk in the Hitachi HDR5T01 as it will void the warranty. The Hitachi HDR5T01 also does not support copying of files from the hard disk to an external USB drive. More information about this device can be found at http://argos-support.co.uk. Thank you for using Argos Q&A.

Hello, Thank you for your question. Yes the Hitachi HDR5T01 set top box will work with an indoor aerial but for the best reception a roof or loft aerial should be used. More information about this device can be found at http://argos-support.co.uk. Thank you for using Argos Q&A,
