Stephen, Manchester

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Installing it, is very simple, assuming you’re using an HDMI cable, the box simply scans in the channels, which takes minutes.
Picture resolution is set to upscale to 1080i by default but you can alter it to 1080p.
Looking forward to the upgrade of the network port pending a possible IP services in the future
Bad points:
Blue LEDs arranged in a square on the fascia is a distraction particularly as it can’t be disabled.
The sound reverts to low when viewing a HD channel. Tried changing it on the Reciever and on the TV but to no avail?
Cannot understand why the HD channels are buried down the EPG around channel 45-49? why not in a logical order? BBC 1 - BBC1 HD
Similar problem is if your watching the National News on BBC 1 HD you have to change channels to BBC 1 to watch Local News then back to channel 45 for BBC 1 HD?

Joan, Liverpool

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I bought this for my daughter as she so admired my machine and it is the answer to not having Sky for ease of operation - who wants to make Robert Murdock and his family more wealthy than they already are and have more of a stranglehold on the world.

kenneth, kenilworth

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Picture quality is excellent, the upscale on normal definition broadcast works well and HD receiver appears better than that in tv.
Bad points:
Expensive for a FreeView box without PVR facility but picture quality worth it.

Good points:
Easy to install and operate. Fast response from the remote channel change etc. Small size make it easy to hide away. Fantastic image processing, the picture quality is excellent.
Bad points:
That blue LED array on the front needs an intensity control, far too bright.
