Philips HDT8520 review


A difficult birth, but this Pace/Philips Freeview HD PVR is now as able bodied as any

Philips HDT8520


The age of the personal video recorder (PVR) dawned long ago, but the folk over at Freeview are only just catching-up. Freeview+ recorders - initially called Freeview Playback - have been around a while, but haven't sold too well. And certainly not as...

Philips HDT8520 review


Well kitted out, the Philips HDT8520 is a excellent Freeview HD+ box

Great styling and display ; detailed, vibrant HD and SD pictures ; solid sound ; 500GB HDD

EPG could have more features ; the Digital Stream DHR8205U has an even better picture

Stylish and feature-laden, the Philips is an excellent Freeview HD+ box

Philips HDT8520 Dual HD TV Recorder


This Pace unit (badged Philips) was the first HD unit I saw in a presentation in the spring, here now the production unit. If you need HD recording then this 500GB digital unit may just tick all the boxes on your wish list.

A nice unit with good sound and picture quality even in standard definition in HD it is truly excellent, it is virtually silent in use

Philips HDT 8520 Freeview HD Recorder


The Philips HDT 8520 was the first Freeview HD Recorder to be released in the UK, but at the time there was a general feeling that it had been a little rushed onto the market in the Spring, to capitalise on the World Cup during the summer.

Review of Philips HDT8520 PVR


Good points: Smart set top box manages to keep its energy consumption low, despite the bright blue LED strip. It also has a simple on screen menu system and a great remote control that allows one touch and series recording. The big 500GB capacity means...
