Has served me well but with the CRT TV making way for digital tv it is no longer needed.

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.
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.
Excerpt: After deciding that just having 5 channels wouldn't do, I realised that i needed to invest in a freeview box. I bought the Philips DTR210 set top box from my local Tesco store for £24.99 The set top box came with an adapter, remote and instructions.
Excerpt: I had a television in my bedroom and it got to the point where watching the usual five television channels were doing my head in, I would go and watch television in bed and there was nothing on.
A box that does all you'd expect it to do, with a few minor flaws.

Excerpt: I picked this Freeview box up for my bedroom portable television, as it was relatively inexpensive and seemed like a quality product. It is impressive - small, so fits nicely onto of the television. Set up was easy and done in a few minutes.
Great value, the display thing doesn't bother me if the price is right!

Excerpt: I bought this because it is relatively cheap, small and sleek looking and I am very please with my purchase. The size and weight make it almost invisible on the shelf below my TV and it is intuitive to set up and use.
Excerpt: I bought this digital tv box from asda about a year ago. Its been brilliant, and I cant understand why anyone has had problems with it, because its NEVER crashed for me. The signal is always good and strong, and I use an indoor powered ariel.
Excerpt: This is my first purchase of a set top box and I am extremely impressed. Purchased for the childrens channels initially (I had visitors!), I had this out of the packing and setup in less than 5 minutes - including having downloaded the programme guide (no exageration).
Excerpt: Small, cheap and cheerful unit. Easy to set up and running without problems for over a month in the childrens room. I would have no problems at the moment, recommending this box to anyone else.
