  • Summary: I have two freesat receivers, the Echostar's Slingloaded number and this one. The quality of the Humax box is definitely superior although the Echostar is very good as well. It's easy to see why Humax is the class leader simply from the refined look and feel of the whole thing.
  • Pros: Quick, great quality picture
  • Cons: Nothing really

A Great Product For a Great Price

  • Excerpt: "For £130 this is an incredibly versatile and reliable model. I found it to be a touch yesteryear in appearance, but it delivers so much in terms of quality and quantity that its physical inadequacies can be easily overlooked. The FoxSat FreeSat box is ideal for HD TVs. With dimensions of 280 x 45 x 200mm it is discreet enough to conceal around your television set, too. The box has facilities for HDMI, video RCA, scart (x2), Ethernet and USB. Video ...
  • Pros: Inexpensive, great choice of channels
  • Cons: Box a little yesteryear in appearance

  • Summary: The Humax Foxsat HD is simply, to me, a "what is says on the tin" job. Its great, I found it very user friendly, I mean sure the manual is a bit... lacking in friendliness but its easy to get your head round. Upon using the Humax set-up with out any issues and went straight into watching television, tried HD and worked fine.
  • Pros: Easy set-up, BBC iPlayer integration is easy to use
  • Cons: Remote is cheap

High-quality reception? Humax. What , the Foxsat?

  • Excerpt: "...salesperson, who showed me the Humax Foxsat-HD. He told me that it cost £149 (it is a little cheaper now) and tried to sell me an HDMI lead to connect it to my Toshiba tv. The Foxsat came with an HDMI lead in the box, so I declined his kind offer to spend more money. I paid my £149, and carried home the box to see how easy it was to install. Installation ========== Basically, all you have to do is disconnect your Sky box, plug in the Foxsat, and ...
  • Pros: Easy to use, easy to install, good performance
  • Cons: Can we have some more Freeview channels on Freesat, please?

  • Summary: When I can make things happen, fine, but a user friendly manual with straighforward commands would make it a fantastic product - THE MANUAL IS ABSOLUTELY GOBBLEDEGOOK!
  • Pros: The idea that it is easy to understand the user manual
  • Cons: The almost umcomprehensible use manual

A bit of a disappointment

  • Excerpt: "Excitedly bought this when first released over a year ago for high definition. After all this time we still barely have one and a half HD channels. It seems there have been problems (perhaps with monopolistic Sky?) and there's no more free satellite HD on the horizon? Instead it seems we have to take a backward step and purchase the new HD freeview box about to be released if we want more HD? The other annoying thing about this Foxsat HD box is ...
  • Pros: one and a half high definition channnels
  • Cons: mostly poor standard definition pictures

  • Summary: The best thing about this is the great menu system, I'd say it's definitely one of the best I've seen.

  • Excerpt: "...waste of time. The Humax box has been a revelation. We watch our programs all the time through it now. My first impression was its small neat size, not dominant at all in the cabinet. Living in the "sticks" I was stuck with 4 channels and quite poor picture quality. I only have an SD TV but the picture quality has improved considerably. It is sharp with good colours. My last set had manual set up but the Humax is fully automatic. I had trouble inputting ...
  • Pros: ease of setting up .   Good on screen info .  easy to use .
  • Cons: none that I have found
