  • Excerpt: Although we have a good range of the latest technology in our household we do also still have an old CRT TV built long before the new digital era. Due to this it was never designed for the digital switchover and therefore we needed a digital reciever for it to be compatible with the new channels.
  • Pros: Allows digital TV on non - digital sets, sleek design, affordable, easy to set up .
  • Cons: Bulky remote control, cheap feeling box, no longer needed due to new technology .

A decent box for the money

  • Excerpt: I wanted a free view box for my bedroom so I went to Curry's to shop for one. I found the Philips one to be one of the slimmest machines I could find. It was priced averagely compared to the other boxes so I decided to give it a go.

Does the job on a budget

  • Excerpt: OVERVIEW: With the inevitable switch over to Digital TV, I decided to purchase a cheap Freeview box for my TV in the bedroom. As I only tend to watch TV for about half an hour before going to sleep, I didn't want to spend a lot of money on the box.

  • Excerpt: A while ago my girlfriend and I were looking for a small digibox for the bedroom as we had gotten so used to watching freeview in the lounge that when we went to the bedroom and there were only five channels to choose from it felt like we were stepping back into the dark ages.

  • Excerpt: I have to admit, I won this box on a competition site and everyone tells me I should be grateful. Why? It was easy to attach, it was easy to load, it was easy to work out all of the instructions. Great.
