It took me a long time to be convinced that any product for Free Satellite could be as good as Sky's (hugely expensive) offering.

My doubts were gradually dispelled and I bought this receiver.

And the results?

Mainstream HD and SD channels? Off the same satellite feed and cables, with a simple swap over, the picture is at least as good and possibly better.

Recording programs or series? Easier than Sky and works brilliantly.

On Demand? iPlayer, ITV and 4OD and YouTube all built into the box. It took 30 seconds on initial installation to find our wifi network and enter the password. Pause a few seconds and perfect connection. And, unlike the Sky alternative, it always finds the network at switch-on, no need for continual resets.

Showcase? The series of programs being brought to your attention are useful too.

The apps? For my iPhone and iPad, the ability to browse current programs and select one to watch "now" or to select for recording could not be simpler. And the pretty way that a selected channel slides up to the current viewing panel as the channel changes is flawless. This is about as good an example of integrating apps to a device as I have seen - Sky is left trailing in its wake.

Overall? After a few weeks I look back on Sky as an expensive diversion, and i just love using this device.

Qualitatively and operationally this is how Satellite viewing should be.

I've had a sky+ box with a basic package - £27 a month - for 5 years and realised that other non-subscription options were multiplying, in the last year especially. Opted for freesat over freeview after direct comparison clearly favoured freesat for it's picture quality on both SD and HD channels. Freesat also seemed more future proof than freeview. Interestingly, John Lewis, where I bought it, use satellite reception for their display TVs.

The set-up was easy - just unplugged the satellite cables from the sky+ box, screwed them into the Humax, connected the HDMI to the TV, and it was off and running. The Onscreen guide (EPG) is almost as easy to use as the Sky and easily learnt without poring over manuals - my wife has no complaints - which is a reasonable benchmark for user friendliness. Great picture quality and huge storage capacity.

The wi-fi built-in makes it likely that Netflix et al will not be long in arriving. The on demand services already available include 4OD and 5, as well as iPlayer and itvplayer. YouTube is surprisingly crisp, DVD quality with no interruptions and this is with a broadband speed of about 2-3 Mb/s.

As for the heavy initial outlay, this will pay for itself in 10 months. No major gripes - it's had some firmware upgrades which presumably ironed out earlier problems picked up by reviewers and of course the ondemand service has expanded as promised. Slightly irked that the remote can't be reprogrammed to control the TV although there are universal remotes I suppose.

When I opened the box, I was initially dismayed at the rather short and brief instruction manual. Surely there must be more information required? But no - that really was all the that was required to get the box set up and running in under 10 minutes with a previously working Sat dish and a WiFi router within range. Particularly good is that it can connect via scart, so older TV's can be connected and suddenly become smarter!

Straight away you have all the catch up services from the 5 main terrestrial channels (BBC i-player etc) and a multitude of channels. The various EPG on-screen displays are all very clear, though the programme information can be a little small on smaller tv. The Menus are all very clear and easily accessed via the remote and all very well thought out, so there is little need for the manual as it is very intuitive. Any options are asked only when needed.

The unit is white, which I dislike, and the shape is like a set of body fat index scales - which I also dislike. Leave it lying on the floor and someone is sure to try and weight themselves on it. But once over this, there is really no complaints.

It's fairly silent in operation, however the remote does have rather loud clickey buttons - This is reserved only for the buttons you's use the most - not sure why, as the rest are the usual quiet type. You won't notice it as a user, but if you channel hop, anyone else in the room will! Some people have pointed out the rather slow boot time (about 15 seconds), but I don't think it's really that bad - but don't press the on button twice as it'll just turn off again.

Brought this box as a replacement for SKY even though I had seen some negative reviews on the internet. First impressions are great, very easy to install and despite what I read I found the remote very easy and natural to use. ( Different from SKY obviously but has to be! but within a few minutes your have it figured out without any need to even read the instructions)

Used the internal WIFI and it streams without any problems (my router is 4m away behind another wall), some internet reviews criticised the built in WIFI as not very good but the manual does say best results are achieved using a wired connection, if your signal is strong and close it should be ok. Only criticism is the "you tube" APP always displays a flashing "loading" while playing clips, not sure whats causing it?

The recording function, I have done a few test records on 5 programs 4 worked well but 1 started recording only for the last 45mins on the film!? So some more test runs needed before that bit is signed off (hence the 4 stars!)! The live TV pause/record/rewind works well as well.

Some reviews have criticised the mechanical clicking with the remote control, its ok and does not annoy me, but I guess if you get annoyed easily by life it might bug you!

As for the build quality cant comment yet, but you have a full 2 years warranty with it, so hopefully that will cover everything.

All in all a great far!
