Kogan’s new PVR has one thing going for it: It’s cheap. It costs $99, has a digital HD tuner and an HDMI output. Rather than house its own HDD, it’s got a USB port that let’s you record TV onto USB thumb drives and USB hard drives up to 1TB.
Compared with the market leading TiVo or Foxtel iQ2, this is a sad, featureless device, but then again, it does only cost $99. If you’re after a cheap PVR for a second TV, maybe, but it’s probably a case of getting what you pay for.
