Sony, $479 ★★★★ The Lon­don Olympic Games will be the first broad­cast in 3D, mak­ing this Sony 3D TVrecord­ing de­vice par­tic­u­larly suited to the job. The HDT1000 ar­rives with a 1TB drive ca­pa­ble of stor­ing up to 140 hours of high- def­i­ni­tion TV shows, as well as two HD tuners for record­ing two pro­grams at once. The de­vice is stylish and well­con­nected, with the abil­ity to con­nect a USB stick or an ex­ter­nal hard drive if its ter­abyte of­fer isn’t enough to store it all. Clearly la­belled con­trols, such as Rec and Rec Stop, make op­er­at­ing this set­top box eas­ier for first- time per­sonal video recorder users, and TV shows are listed in a seven- day pro­gram­ming guide. Ad­vanced users may be dis­ap­pointed that this unit does not de­liver pic­ture- in- pic­ture ca­pa­bil­ity for pre­view­ing chan­nels when search­ing the guide, but it’s an oth­er­wise com­pre­hen­sive of­fer­ing.
