  • 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

  • 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

Simple yet effective box with HD

Metronic, Ciao

  • Excerpt: "I have been using this box now for around 9 months and have found it relatively easy to use. The EPG is not as easy or as clear as Sky's offering, but it works. I particularly like the way in which is shows how long a program has been on and the resolution of the broadcast. The box itself is actually very small and streamlined, hardly takes up any room at all - very impressive. Most of the buttons are hidden under a flap on the front of the player ...
  • Pros: Smart, compact, picture quality
  • Cons: Slow, volume issues

Freeview HD

  • Excerpt: "Having this product for over a year now im still unsure whether it was actually worth the money, living in an area with honestly pretty shocking analogue TV reception we were kind of forced to go digital, which definately was a good idea. The large number and variety of channels means there is always something to watch on TV. The reason we chose to convert to freeview digital was due to the poor reception we got with sky, constantly having trouble ...
  • Pros: Good quality reception, plenty of channels avalible
  • Cons: Expensive, limited HD channels so far

  • Summary: I live in a rural area where I am only able to get TV reception via a satellite dish. The new Humax Freesat set top box has enabled me to get quality pictures without having to pay the high prices commercial enterprises charge. I am absolutely delighted with this product which has improved on the standard of pictures I have been paying through the nose for over the last 8 years.
  • Pros: It has enabled me to receive quality TV pictures without SKY
  • Cons: Not a great deal. Manual could be a little more user friendly.
