Product Description

The 500Gb hard drive allows you to use 250Gb for personal storage, this for the majority of Sky customers is plenty as it allows you to record approximately 185 hours of standard definition TV or 60 hours of high definition TV, or obviously a combination of the two. The remaining 250Gb is reserved by Sky for services such as Sky Anytime, Video on Demand and 3D Services, exactly the same as all current PVR models. All Sky boxes including this one are now manufactured by Sky, this makes the DRX890w much more reliable than previous models as Sky have far more control over the quality of the components used than ever before. The DRX890w has the lowest return rate due to failure than any other current model. It's far cheaper than the larger capacity HD box yet it performs just as well (if not better due to reliability), all the functions are the same, you're simply paying for extra storage on the more expensive model, nothing else. It runs very cool and quiet, much more so than previous models.(Sky4Less.co.uk)

I found this very easy to set up. I believe the Setup was made easy because I already subscribe to SKY HD and Multi Room. The card I used was current and being used in a basic Panasonic box so when I inserted it into this box it recognised I was an HD Subscriber and gave me access to all programmes in HD immediately. The built in WiFi was also easy to link to my BT Hub using the WPS buttons on the BT Hub and SKY box. No messing with passwords. One thing I found with the built in WiFi is that it does slow down WiFi to other devices. Turning off the SKY box did help a little.

Bought this Sky+HD box to replace an old Sky+ box.

It was much cheaper than the "special offer" from Sky, and was clearly brand new (all wrappers and protective plastic sheets still in place), it included the Sky+HD box, a remote control and batteries and cables, and arrived quickly.

It was a 5 minute job to swap the boxes over, and very easy to get logged onto our wifi. I had to call Sky to get the new box linked to my old viewing card (but they were surprisingly efficient and helpful!) and then everything worked fine.

Had this a while now with no problems whatsoever. Good unit, well made and performs well. Plenty of recording space for me and supports on demand which works well considering my internet download speed is rubbish.

I ordered this sky box after reading the reviews about it, and having received it and installed it only the day after I placed the order , I am now up and running with no fuss at all , it was very simple to connect to the BT home hub via the wps button, then had to run upstairs to the sky box and press wps on the front of the box, it connected in seconds and now I can get on demand quickly and all other channels have good quality picture and sound. I thought I needed to spend over a hundred quid to get a new sky box so I didn't bother, then I saw this one and am now very happy :) I should add that I ordered a used box but it is as good as new!

Bought this as it was far cheaper that buying directly from Sky. Plugged it all in and it worked straight away. I didn't need to reset anything or order another card.

Old box was playing up, spoke to sky and found boxes from them are very pricey, they recommended Amazon. After research bought this one. Replaced older sky HD + box perfectly. Smaller and had built in wifi. Really easy to set up, picked up nearly all channels instantly ad a visit to sky.com/quickfix did the rest. So much easier than I thought it would be. Delivery was fast, and sooooo much cheaper than getting it from sky. Def the one to get !! very happy.
