BT YouView+ PVR

The BT YouView+ PVR still in the top slot

BT's YouView+ PVR is still top of the list of the top 10 most popular product reviews on in February 2016, alongside blenders and fitness accessories. 

If the list of popular products on Which? are any indication, then there were lots of great TV programmes you were keen to watch in February, all while sipping healthy homemade smoothies.

Tablets feature too, from big brands with heavy price tags to less well-known contenders at much more modest prices. 

Read on for the full list of the top 10 most popular product reviews over the last month.

1. BT YouView+ (Humax DTR-T2110) personal video recorder

You can either get this popular video recorder in store for around £70, or for free with BT TV’s monthly subscription. YouView combines Freeview TV channels with on-demand services, so you can watch live and catch-up TV. But how easy is it to use and is the picture any good compared to other PVRs from brands such as Sky, Virgin Media and Panasonic? 

Find out in our BT YouView+ (Humax DTR-T2110) review.

2. Nutri Ninja BL450UK blender

The personal blender fad that was first kicked off by Nutribullet shows no sign of abating, as Nutri Ninja and other blenders continued to be popular in February. The Ninja claims it can blend whole fruits and frozen ingredients, has a 900W motor and two cups with lids.

It's the most popular blender on our list for February, but find out if it's actually better than the Nutribullet in our review of the Nutri Ninja BL450UK.

3. Salter Nutri Pro 1000 blender

Still keeping your interest is the £49 Nutri Pro from Salter. It's a bit cheaper than other mini blenders but still claims to blend quickly and deliver smooth results. On the face of it, it's very similar to the ubiquitous Nutribullet, so we put it through Which? lab tests to uncover what the real differences are.

Is it a bargain or are you better off spending a bit more? Find out in our Salter Nutri Pro 1000 review.

4. Microsoft Surface Pro 4 m3-4GB tablet

If you want a tablet with bags of processing power then the Microsoft Surface Pro might be for you. But at more than £700 it could be a very expensive disappointment that leaves you pining for your old laptop. 

Our Microsoft Surface Pro 4 m3-4GB review reveals the results of our rigorous lab tests and expert verdict. 

5. Silentnight Classic 1200 Pocket Deluxe mattress

This pocket sprung mattress is affordably priced at £349, but if you're a poor sleeper or have back problems will it really give you the comfort you need? We've tested it against mattresses from big brands such as Sealy and Tempur.

Find out how it compares in our Silentnight Classic 1200 Pocket Deluxe mattress review.

6. Fitbit One

It seems you're sticking to your resolutions to get fit, or perhaps it's just the promise of spring, but either way interest in the Fitbit One increased in February. This little gadget promises to help you get fit and sleep better - who wouldn't want that?

However, at Which?, we don't take these claims lying down. We get our testers to carry shopping, sweep the floor and read a book, all while wearing face masks that measure oxygen and carbon dioxide production. This allows us to accurately log calorie burn so we can compare it against the readings from the Fitbit One.

Nutribullet 600

Is the Nutribullet 600 bullet blender better than the Nutri Ninja?

7. Nutribullet 600 bullet blender

This diminutive little blender is still popular despite larger and more powerful models being available. We've tried it out making smoothies, soup and crushing ice to find out whether the Nutribullet 600 review can stand up against the stiff competition.

8. Samsung UE40JU6400 TV

It's all about 4K for televisions now and for close to £400 this 40-inch TV looks like a bargain from Samsung. As well as 4K, you can watch subscription-free high definition channels thanks to this TV's Freeview HD tuner. It's also a smart TV that you can use to record. But all the extras are no use unless the picture and sound quality do justice to your favourite programmes and films.

Read our review of the Samsung UE40JU6400 TV to see how it shapes up.

9. Fitbit Charge HR

This fitness band tracks steps, distance travelled, calories burnt and heart rate data, as well as being able to alert you to calls on your phone. It's exactly the same as the Fitbit Charge, just with an added heart rate monitor built in.

Read our Fitbit Charge HR review to find out if it will keep you motivated. 

10. Lenovo TAB 2 A10

It's no surprise that the Lenovo TAB 2 A10 has made it into our top 10 popular products. This 10-inch tablet has a high 1920x1200 resolution HD display and claimed 10 hour battery, both of which make it sound appealing. But is this tablet a genuine contender against Microsoft's Surface Pro or the Apple iPad Pro?
