I think the Curry's unit is the older 9520 model. I picked up a Humax 9200T today and they price matched their own Dixon's online price without problem - £171 instead of £199.

After a painful experience with the recent Aldi unit I hope the more expensive Humax is worth it.

You may well be right. What's the difference? Maybe the one I bought only has one tuner so no recording + watching?

It's worth stretching to get a Humax IMO.

The 9200T is an excellent piece of kit capable of recording two programmes at once while you're playing back a previous recording! Also they're constantly improving it by releasing revised software to download that improves it functionality - the development team is constantly listing to feedback (via the Hummy website) and trying to act on it.

Another for the Humax.
Definately worth spending the extra money if possible to get this - Best bit of kit I've bought for years!

I've been playing the the Humax I bought which is my Mums Xmas present and
think it very good. It works out of the box, user interface seems okay and has
a few features I prefer over my Topfield (nicer remote, better front panel indication
and record in standby) - but for my I like the ability to customise my Toppy.

I know its a lot more money than some of the new 99 twin tuner units that are
hitting the market now but may work out cheaper in the long run. Haven't
Humax said they are going to do a software update to support Freeview Playback,
which I doubt a lot of the cheaper boxes won't.

This seems to be getting good reviews over at DigitalSpy. Seems to have the new acurate EPG implemented in the software (BBC are the only channel broadcasting the triggers at the moment) - the digital PDC equivalent. Might try and pick one up for the parents as I don't think they'd use any of the features that the Humax boasts over this (and there aren't that many).

the 9520 is the old single-tuner version and the 9502 is the new dual tuner model.
