ADB i-CAN Easy HD 2851T receiver review


Wow - a Freeview HD receiver that does other stuff! Not only does this debut box from ADB feature a cutting-edge DVB-T2 tuner, but it also sports an interface for the BBC iPlayer - and a quite magnificent one, at that.

BBC iPlayer interface, Freeview HD menus, high-def pictures, price

SD pictures, basic remote, iPlayer menus can be slow to load

Featuring two stunning interfaces for both BBC iPlayer and Freeview HD, it's initially hard to find fault with the i-Can. Though a pleasure to use with impressive high-def images, the i-Can nevertheless falls at the final hurdle by proffering very...

I-Can Easy HD 2851T review


You may want to purchase an i-CAN if you are one of those people who bought your HDTV just before manufacturers started building in Freeview HD tuners. Or you might be in the market for decent sports coverage without an unsightly dish, or because you...

Superb results from SD and HD Freeview channels; ready for pay-TV

iPlayer support not HD; no multimedia playback or USB recording ; Performance: 4/5 ; Design: 4/5 ; Features: 3/5 ; Overall 4/5

Not exactly plain sailing


Got off to a bumpy start with this product, but because my viideo, dvd recorder and tv didn't have digital tuners, a freeview box seemed the most favoureable so I could keep using them. Plus the added option of the bbc Iplayer was a bonus.

i-Can Easy HD


The set-up is quite straight forward, I did need to re-start the process once though before the channels tuned in. No built-in WiFi I had expected but luckily I had a spare wireless network adaptor that I could plug in and it worked okay, it even takes...

A Bargain!


Thirty pounds lets you try HD and iPlayer on your TV. Thirty pounds! Okay, so the box isn't as sophisticated as offerings from Humax, et al....and tech support is akin to handing a cigarette to a man who's on fire....but hey. It's THIRTY QUID. It...

Great little box, snappy, good menus, nothing to fault!


Got this for an old TV for my parents, been looking for a unit for a while and the reviews on this one were positive. Very surprised when it arrived, a lovely little unit with stylish simple menus and EPG, a good snappy response. Very surprised the...

good for a legacy crt tv


A seven year old Philips freeview box died, the crt tv was ok and fits a unit that none of the new tv units fit. Box does sd and hd. So ok for our needs since standalone freeview replacement boxes are becoming rare as there now in the tv rather than in...

Returned due to jumpy picture on HD channels


This freeview box was easy to set up, the menu system is good but the channels are listed in a strange order making it difficult to find the ones I wanted, I couldn't find a way of altering this either. The HD picture quality was great but...
