Metronic 441816

Do not buy this unless you are in an area with very good reception. It is a very low sensitivity receiver. I had to bin mine and buy the dearer, but much more sensitive and better featured Metronic Eco Zapbox.

Dish Network VIP 222k

Every night the box goes into standy mode and you must physically turn on the box if you want to watch tv. This means you can't TIVO any shows while on vacation. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!

Samsung Electronics Samsung YA-CD200 NeXus Home Docking Kit

I pulled the connector off my Nexus antenna pulling it through a hole in the wall. I couldn't find just the connector at all. Radio Shack had the antenna alone for $50. I paid $30 for this whole kit. Good to have the spare parts.

Echostar T-101 FTA

Originally, a good product. Since the much publicised NTI split however, this box is now one of those displaying channels such as BBC 1 out of the correct order (800 in this case). So you end up with an odd channel list and no way or sorting it. BBC1,...

Sigmatek DVBR-520HD

This is NOT an HD receiver. However the product is of a neat and tidy design and very easy to install, but the way it initially lists your channels may prove puzzling. The overall software performance is somewhat slow and cumbersome with its delayed...

Sirius ST5TK1 Starmate 5 Dock & Play Radio for Sirius Satellite Radio

This is a great choice if you're a new Sirius subscriber. The radio with a big screen/LCD type look is a waste of money if you live up north where the cold weather can cause the screen to freeze. The "pause" capability is exactly like a DVR/Tivo in...

I had previously an FTA by Lemon, which revealed to be really rubbish and died after less that 2 years of very light use. So I bought this Strong; I payed 30 euro for shipment in the continental Europe. The shipment was very fast, but the box was...

Pinnacle PCTV nanoStick

The Pinnacle PCTV nanoStick is not without its quirks, but it remains a fairly decent tuner for the asking price. In optimum conditions it will not disappoint, with the included features boosting its value considerably.

Openbox S11 Skybox S11 HD PVR

Bought this upon recommendation. The guy that installed my box told me that it was an inferior product and demonstrated to me the difference between the f3 box and his own. And the difference was around 200 channels and less configuration choices. Had...

Cable-Tex Coaxial Aerial Cable Right Angle Plug to Socket White 0.5m

Good short cable for the price, exactly what I needed for a small wall mounted TV on a white wall. Only problem being that this seems to be an extension cable rather than an aerial cable on it's own as the ends are male and female rather than two...
