Goodmans GDB300HD FreeviewHD photo gallery

I’m working on a roundup of Freeview HD receivers at the moment, for Register Hardware. You’ll have to wait until it’s published there for all the full details and to find out what I think about the different bits of kit – it’s a comparative review, so I shan’t be jumping to any conclusions until I’ve had time to play properly with all the various bits of equipment that will be featured.

But, in the meantime, to whet your appetite, here are some photos of the Goodmans GDB300HD, which arrived today (courtesy of my friendly courier, who seems to have recovered from being clamped outside my flat a few weeks ago).

The Goodmans is from Harvard plc, who also own the Grundig brand in the UK, and there’s a corresponding Grundig model, the GUD300HD, which differs only in looks. Both should cost the same, around £150.

So, here are my photos of the Goodmans:
