How many times have you wished that there was a single device that could help you watch / record TV shows (on your set) along with access a variety of internet-based media? If you own an HD-ready television, you’re in luck because 3view’s HD TV Recorder can do all this and more.

In reality, this device is worth the price of admission based solely on its ability to record up to 400 hours of programming. But when you factor in that it will also allow you to record one channel / program while watching another, you get a much better sense for just how valuable this little box truly is. Along with its recording capabilities comes its built-in internet ready interface, which (as previously mentioned) allows you to watch media straight from YouTube, for example. Even more amazing is the fact that this device will grant you the ability to stream data from your PC; what’s even more impressive is the fact that you can do this with the included remote (without having to get up!).

However, the fun doesn’t end there; this amazing TV recorder also allows you to use social media (like Facebook and Twitter) along with perusing your email box, but through your TV set. For tech junkies who have nice television sets, this is definitely worth picking up. Furthermore, this device is an excellent way to gain the functionality of streaming internet-based media on your TV without having to purchase one of the major video game consoles (which are all now offering these types of services). In other words, this is perhaps an excellent alternative to purchasing an Xbox 360 or PS3 if you’re just after the streaming capabilities of those devices.

Whether you are looking for a total home entertainment / internet to TV interface solution, 3view’s HD Digital TV recorder (with 500GB HDD) is definitely worth looking into. Highly functional and recommended!
