Technika SmartBox 8320HD


Languishing on the shelves of Tesco is the Technika SmartBox 8320HD, a clever TV set-top box that promises to serve up a veritable platter of delights. Embracing the current trend for offering connected features, the 8320HD not only offers you...

Freeview+HD, network file support seems wide, connectivity options, price

Platform stability, build quality, persistent Wi-Fi issues, USB problems

In some areas the Technika SmartBox 8320HD is a little rough around the edges. It won’t win any prizes for design and the user interface isn’t the best around - the previewed update is something that would make the experience just that little bit...

Still not bug-free ; a bit flimsy in the flesh

Who’d have thought Technika would be at the cutting-edge of set-top boxes? With greater refinement, this could be a winner

As well as the competitive price, the SmartBox has a couple of other features that help it stand out from the crowd. It's got online access to the BBC iPlayer, and is also the only Freeview box that also provides an optional subscription to the Sky...

Plus points An affordable FreeviewHD recorder with both iPlayer and optional Sky Player

Tedious online registration process, rather cheap build quality, the Sky Player costs extra

SmartBox 8320HD


Many months post-launch there are still "issues" with the performance of the Smartbox. The interface also leaves a lot to be desired. However, Fetch are issuing new firmware and slowly making improvements - it remains to be seen how long they will...
