Good quality box with an excellent easy to use guide which updates instantly

R8IT, Dooyoo

  • Excerpt: Ive owned this freeview box now for over 2 years. Whilst not the smallest freeview box its 48mmx215mmx240mm, and comes with a stand to allow you to place in a vertical position, but looks fine sat ontop of the DVD player. Allow a good couple of inch's at the back for the scart sockets.

A fantastic freeview box, the best I've owned.

  • Excerpt: Without a doubt, the most reliable freeview box I have owned! This was the first freeview box I ever purchased and paid £92 for it, which was a couple of years ago so I assume pfar cheaper now.

  • Cons: no top up tv slot

Crikey, a freeview box that does NOT crash

14 November 2006
  • Excerpt: I'll keep this short, the other guys have summed up and I agree with their comments, just to add: 1) It actually WORKS, i.e. the software (unlike so many other boxes) does NOT crash. 2) Their marketing department should be shot for the idiotic 'vertical' design. What's that all about?
  • Pros: It works !  !  !  Hurrrragh
  • Cons: A vertical standing design?? Are you serious?

Best Set-top Box

M. Nair, Amazon
25 September 2006
  • Summary: This is the best set-top box I've seen. The sound and picture quality are great and there is none of the pixellation or freeze seen in some of the less expensive ones. There is very little delay when switching channels.

Not as good as expected

perfectho..., Ciao
1 July 2006
  • Excerpt: I bought this box to replace a Goodmans, which kept turning itself off (as found by other reviewers). I bought the Sony solely on the strength of consistent excellent reviews and it did produce a good picture.
  • Pros: good picture
  • Cons: didn't reliably receive all channels

Mesmerised by the complaint about picture quality

neil, Amazon
6 June 2006
  • Summary: The picture quality on this freeview box is second to none. I'm sure that the consumer with the complaint saying that this freeview box had inferior picture quality to the one built into the TV is probably because the video output settings are not optimised.

The best

J. E., Amazon
2 June 2006
  • Summary: I live in an area where Freeview is supposed not to be available, but after installing a Televes DAT45 aerial I found that it is possible to receive sufficient signal. I have tried four other set top boxes each of which had its own problems.

Sony VTX-D800U Freeview Digital TV Set Top Box

G. Mitchelson, Amazon
27 May 2006
  • Summary: We purchased two of these boxes in Dec 2004 for the two TVs in our house. We went for Sony really because we have always used the brand for most of our A/V electronics and find them higher quality and better features generally.
