Manhattan T3-R 500GB review
Test scoreShow Context
<p>Manhattan is better known for its set-top boxes than PVRs, but with its handful of Best Buys we have high hopes that Manhattan can mimic this success in its new T3-R 500GB PVR. It's far from being the cheapest PVR, but it's advanced thanks to its 4K capabilities and the inclusion of catch-up apps. Is this the PVR to go for, or should Manhattan stick with set-top boxes?<br></p>
