Most helpful reviews

Steve,

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The program guide and how it integrates On Demand is very intuitive and easy to use. It looks good too.

Integrated wifi is very good.
Bad points:
No matter how I try to configure it switches off when I put the TV to stand by which means it has to reboot and take 30 seconds or so to start up everytime you switch the TV back on.

As it was the top of the range model I was hoping that it would act as a DNLA server as well as a DNLA client but it doesn't.

Would rather have had a black metal case but this model is only sold in white plastic.

Apps support isn't that good I had to buy a separate media streamer to do Netflix etc.

Edward, Newport

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
No monthly bills. Easy to operate.
Bad points:
TV guide only show on now and next program on screen you have to page forward to see others. My box also seems to get locked up when changing channels and goes to a blank screen, but is cleared by switching to another channel and then switching back again.

David, Critical me

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Excellent bit of kit, should have got similar years ago. The wife has all her soaps recorded automatically. I dont miss the rugby. The kids love the online archive and the wireless works perfectly. There are so many good films on every week that we have tonnes recorded that we have not seen yet.
Bad points:
Should have got one years ago. 15 years of sky subscriptions, ouch!!
