For the money, this Goodmans set-top box isn't a bad option, but it needs to be slicker, and the remote is horrible

Modern looks ; well designed menus ; bold, colourful picture

Auto Standby - Be Warned!


Whilst this box might suit people who are looking for a relatively cheap box for High Definition television reception and used to channel hopping, it is of no use if you wish to record television for more then 3 hours, because this unit TURNS OFF AFTER...

easy to install, stylish looks

turns off after 3 hours inactivity, system hangs quite easily, remote control a little over-sensitive

Can't believe it's a Goodmans


Finally got my Goodmans Freeview HD box after the delivery was delayed for a few days due to the heavy snow we've had recently, and it was well worth the wait.
