Summary: My new home had a satellite dish already installed. Plugged this in and it worked. The programme guide is a bit clunky but picture quality is excellent although my TV isn't really big enough to make HD necessary.
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.
Summary: It is so easy to make an informed choice on Amazon, after looking at all the other reviews I was almost sure this Humax box is the right choice. It was easy to setup with my old SKY dish antenna...
Summary: The box arrived in FRANCE. from England, in four days. Not having too many installers in the area, and already being on satelite I decided to install it myself. All went well until it came to entering the postcode.
Summary: When Sky put up their prices again I decided to go for Freesat, and the Humax was a Which? Best Buy. Despite the "Installation Recommended" tag it was simplicity itself to install - just disconnect the Sky box and connect the Humax. I am very pleased with it.
Summary: having decided to go for an HD Freesat receiver, this one seemed to fit the bill. It arrived from Amazon within five days ( I live in Guernsey)and as i was doing a self install i read the nice clear instructions. I would say a minimum of knowledge is required to install the unit.
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.
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.
Pros: Easy set-up, BBC iPlayer integration is easy to use
Summary: The receiver was easy to install and worked straight out of the box (no installation required for most people I reckon). Quality of the picture is very good and no quibbles with the HD either.
