Storex MediaZapper HD Review

The Storex MediaZapper HD looks good on paper: support for all the latest HD formats, digital HD tuner, timeshifting and, above all, budget pricing. Is it really reasonable to expect all this from a media centre hundreds of pounds cheaper than the best? Does it do what it says on the tin? Lets check it out.


HD digital tuner

High sensitivity tuner

Rapid photo viewing


You need to contact customer services to get timeshift. This feature is difficult to get working.

Frequent instability

Graphics interface from another era

Average compatibility and stretches videos

Poor 2.5″ hard drive support



Although on offer at a budget price, the current faults are very numerous, perhaps too numerous. The media centre part needs a complete overhaul, while the digital HD tuner needs to be greatly improved, starting with timeshifting. Lets hope that these features will soon be updated.
