Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Has a lot of capabilities considering the budget-friendly price,including HDMI connectivity easy recording and versatility.
You can edit and trim recorded content right from the EzRecorder interface.
Intuitive no hassle user interface with useful DVR features eg. timed schedules, editing etc. Simple file transfers between internal HDD and USB flashdrives.

What reviewers didn't like

It's a bit confusing to set up and construction are lacking.
This DVR is intensely strict in upholding copyright law, and it automatically prevents you from recording with a splitter or anything else violating restrictions set by HDCP protection.
Officially, the AverMedia ER310 is certified to play back only what it has recorded (ie. mp4, AAC) so other popular AV formats eg. mkv, AC3, DTS are not supported which makes it not versatile enough to be a standalone HTPC media centre.
