  • Excerpt: Had read the (rather mixed) reviews on here but decided to take a chance with this box because of its size and price. Only had the box up and running a week, but so far Ive had no problems at all with it and been really impressed - none of the freezing etc experienced by others. The box itself is sleek and shiny and considerably smaller than many other competing boxes.

  • Excerpt: What a load of rubbish, clearly released before its fully tested. Will not be buying any Philips products again. Just keeps crashing, buy a humax, so much better.

  • Excerpt: Had this wee machine for a few weeks (bought from Avides media ) and it pretty much does what it should do.Well,mostly.Two faults - firstly the EPG does not seem to update and more often than not will only show the next two programmes.This makes the built in timer fairly redundant,meaning you have to visit Tv guide to find out whats on.Secondly,the units LED that comes on when the unit is on standby, is so bright it makes the Death Stars planet busting laser look like a...

  • Excerpt: I purchsed the phillips freeview to replace my ageing Thompson box. I wish I had not as the phillips one does not perform as well as my old one and the picture constantly freezes. I have changed the aerial to a more powerful one and still it is useless.

  • Excerpt: Pleased with the compact design and many features, but very disappointed with the parental control aspect. We specifically bought this model because we wanted to control the content of the programmes our children can watch. We wanted to put in an age limit and the instruction book shows you how to do this. However in practice it cannot be done. We contacted Philips and they came back to confirm it cannot be done and they have no plans to change the software.

  • Excerpt: PLEASE do not buy this, unless you are buying it for someone you cant stand and want to punish them and force them into a downward-spiralling cycle of misery and frustration. I did not buy this, my poor father did, God rest his soul. I can almost see the guy in the shop now, palms sweating as he told my poor, naive father that he should buy a really good quality freeview box which was bang up to date as his old one was obsolete...
