Capable picture and sound quality ; easy to use ; good EPG ; capacious hard disk ; relatively affordable

Easy to install and use.

The device seems to struggle to play back programmes recorded in HD. The image can break a little and it gets laggy so that the sound is behind the pictures. So annoyingly have to pause and hten start to play again to get it all back in sync. Suspect...

Good product with a large hard drive - a lot cheaper then most other freesat + boxes in the shops. I have had no problems, easy toset up and record.
