Linsar UK launch LED TV range with built in PVR functionality 

Linsar LED television with integrated PVR function

PVR (Personal Video Recorders) have been a popular product segment for a few years now, generally relying on an integrated hard disk to hold recorded programmes. Linsar have now merged this functionality into their televisions. Rather than bury a hard disk into the product the TVs provide you with a standard USB socket to which you can connect a standard Flash memory stick or an external hard disk - up to 500GB.

Apart from the effectively unlimited storage using external devices has a number of benefits:

  • Choose smaller Flash memory devices and use them as you once used VHS tapes - build up your own library. With an 8G stick being available for under £10 this makes excellent sense.
  • By storing programmes separately you don't loose your entire library when your product eventually gives up the ghost
  • Stored in standard video formats you can record your favourite programmes and then play back on laptops anywhere you want.

To distinguish this from traditional PVR functionality Linsar have coined the term PPR - Plug - Play - Record. Will it catch on?

Initially the range includes a 19" set along with two fully 1080p 22" and 24" versions. You can see the range on the Linsar web-site. Let us know what you think!
