Clear picture and sound. The actual freeview box is a nice design.

The TV guide is quite annoying to use as you can't keep watching the channel that's on, it switches off the channel to the guide. It also isn't easy to use the guide and goes into the timer when all you want to do is view the information. I paid extra...

Because it was small, relatively few materials were wasted in its pointless production.

It didn't let me enter the postcode or proceed to any subsequent screen.

Turns itself off after a period of time. Some people may think this is a good thing but I find it annoying

Easy set up and works on a powered aerial, also has an auto turn off setting incase you fall asleep with it switched on.

with the TV off it's hard to tell whether the unit is on or off.

Easy to istall. Small physical size.

Green LED indicates stand-by operation. Light extinguished indicates 'ON' Could be confusing? Causes herringbone patterning when receiver is operating on analog signals.
