BEST VALUE I HAVE FOUND
Bought this as needed a more up-to-date device to record and playback. Easy to set up but not impressed with picture quality. I use the device on a second TV, an old 43 inch samsung LED, 7 or 8 years old, maybe more. The freeview on the old TV gives a much brighter picture, the picure from the Manhattan T2, on the same TV, is very dull in comparison. The menu and other screens seem OK its just the picture Also I presumed, as it had a ethernet connection, it would have the ability to browse the internet. Silly me! All smart TVs do it so why not? The T3 has Smart in the desciption but from what I've read it only has preset Apps.
Super Value, Easy Setup, Great Support
I did lots of research before selecting this model. This Manhattan brand, (unknown to me previously) seem to have identified problems with TV recorders from other brands and learned lessons from their mistakes. It's a very small, compact machine, very easy to navigate the "set up" (even came with an HDMI cable). The stunning picture and sound quality is every bit as good as my almost brand new Samsung Smart TV. Also, I had reason to phone Manhattan regarding a feature that I didn't quite understand. They answered my call within a couple of rings (UK based - NOT offshore) and explained everything perfectly. I can 100% recommend this model..
