The beast is a bit 'clunky' compared with a Sky supplied unit but it works just fine. As with all these things the instruction sheet has script which is far too small for my eyes, even with my trusty Sherlock Holmes magnifying glass. The packaging was minimal to say the least but it survived the ravages of the Post Office so I can't complain.
I'm just starting to switch to LED lamps to replace the earlier energy saving lamps. These seem to work just fine, they are nice and bright and don't get hot, or even warm, but the change is expensive.
