Bought this to replace old sky box that had stopped working. I don't have a sky subscription, but like to watch freesat. Plugged out old box and plugged in new box. No problem to set up and arrived within two days of ordering.

Purchased this box as our old box was very old and the picture was pixialting badly. the box worked great and the picture is great and stable most of the time except very heavy rain which is normal where we live.
I was worried as it's an HD box and I only have a standard Sky card but everything worked fine, as a plus I now have the free HD channels BBC etc but it wouldn't bother me if they weren't there. I was told I would have to reinitialise my card on-line but I didn't have to it worked straight away.
The only downer, and it's really because Sky expect everyone to be Sky plus, is that when I "book" a program I can't red it in the way I used to for an automatic turnover. So I have lost the possibility to record for a couple of hours and get two programs one after the other on two different channels. This is not the boxes fault it's the way the system works now as on newer boxes even those without Sky Plus the red button is for recording

Be aware that you will need to order a Viewing Card from sky in order to view some channels like ITV 2 HD, Liverpool FC TV etc. The card costs 25 pounds and can only be ordered via Sky's 0845 number where they try to sell you packages/broadband.

This box doesn't have wifi or recording functions.

I got a refurbished / used one but it was in good condition, like new basically and it works very well.

I only watch the 'Freesat from Sky' channels and have just bought this box as a replacement. I agree with all the positive comments made. It is compact, smart-looking and does the job. However as time goes on you discover features that are regrettably absent, despite it being a budget box. As it has no recording facility I use it in conjunction with a DVD recorder via the Scart connections. Like possibly all Sky boxes, it goes into auto standby if not used for 2 hours between 11.00pm and 4.00am (I believe) so if I am recording a programme in the early hours it is tough luck - I will miss it unless I set the alarm clock for some ungodly hour and get up to switch the box on! There is a procedure to override this on more advanced boxes but not this one. If this niggling aspect does not bother you then go for it. I really don't have any other criticisms.

By James B. Spink HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 15 Mar. 2013
I received one of these HD boxes from Sky as a replacement for a faulty, and rather elderly, Pace SD box being used as part of a multi-room package. The Sky engineer said that this new HD box is now the only option Sky supply as a non-recording box. The unit is very small compared to other Sky boxes I've had before, but works well in HD and also upscales an SD picture to a suitable HD TV. Connectivity is quite good - both for now and future services - but although it has an optical digital audio output for home cinema systems it does not have analogue phono sockets for connecting to a HiFi etc. I use this multi-room box as much for radio listening as for TV viewing and whereas the old box connected nicely to the HiFi via good quality cables I have had to use a SCART to phono lead to get an analogue audio output from this units SCART socket. This is OK for me as the box is connected to the TV via HDMI - but if I had needed to use the single SCART to connect to an older TV this would not have been possible!

This is a nicely made and good looking box and if you don't need to record then it is your only option direct from Sky at present. Other boxes are still available from other sellers but this is probably the best option for most users looking to upgrade an old Sky SD box, or those wanting to move to Sky HD from Freesat. Would be five stars for picture quality but I have deducted a star because of the lack of dedicated analogue audio outputs which I would have liked for my requirements.
