I've had one of these since January and it served me quite well until roughly 2-3 months ago when it packed in...
It's a great idea to keep the Freeview receiver compact and tidy to the back of your TV set, with an IR receiver LED that can be plugged in and placed on top of your TV. You get a small adhesive stript to stick this to your telly, which is needed as the IR bauble is light and never wants to stay were you've positioned it. Setup is quick and effortless. The menus are understandable and easy to navigate.
One minor niggle is that you cannot turn off the automatic messages to search for software updates at 3am, meaning that this isn't the ideal product if you're likely to be recording lots of early morning programming.
The major problem is that the unit itself gets really hot, and if in constant use it will eventually become too hot and increase the likelihood of malfunction. Sometimes the unit simply will not respond to any remote input, sometimes even reacting after a delay of over a minute! The unit itself does not have anything to assist hardware failures, such as a reset button on the casing. This mean that if the IR unit packs in or you lose/misplace the remote, the unit is useless.
Overall this product, whilst a great concept for a tidy Freeview solution that won't cost too much, is let down by a poor build quality.
