PVR and DVR reviews

We test 13 PVRs to find the models to best suit your TV habits.

Last updated: 21st October 2015

Never again will you need to choose between an emergency trip to the loo and the bloody climax of a Game of Thrones season finale – not when you can pause, rewind, replay and record your 'can't miss' television shows on your personal video recorder (PVR – also known as a DVR, with the D standing for 'digital').

Tape-free, disc-free and (ideally) hassle-free, PVRs should be straightforward and easy to use; we find out which PVR works best in the home to save you time and effort.

Want CHOICE's advice on what to look for, based on our years of experience testing digital goods? See our PVR buying guide for everything you need to know before you hit the shops.
