lyndsey , torpoint cornwall

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
As a business we have purchased a lot of these boxes and have had very few problems with them. They are easy to install and easy to use. We have tried cheaper ones but gave up as they were not reliable.
Bad points:
Like all digital equipment they occasionally freeze and require unplugging to reset.
