I was viewing the setup of this box with some trepidation as I've never had anything to do with Freesat, Sky or anything other than terrestrial tv. I had an existing satellite dish which I had never used before and a cable into a bedroom where I wanted to use the box. I had to put an F connecter on the cable which was easy to do and then somewhat nervously started the Manhattan setup.

This turned out to be amazingly simple and within 5 minutes I was flicking through the Freesat EPG. Setting up the non Freesat channels was just as easy and switching from one to the other was dead easy using the well thought out interface. The Plaza's display was phenomenal, the HD channels were stunning and the SD ones were as good, easily the equal of the new Freeview HD on the new Samsung tv in the living room. The box is small, neat and unobtrusive and performs amazingly well considering its the cheapest on the market.

My only grumbles would be that the remote is rather small and a bit rubbery and the Freesat channels cannot be organised into an order that suits me, ie, emulating the terrestrial channels, however I understand that this is a Freesat issue and not Manhattans. I cannot recommend this receiver highly enough, its great, I've already ordered its bigger brother the Plaza HDR-S with HDD recording facilities for my living room tv.

I took quite a lot of time to choose which BOX I wanted and looked at lots of reviews .. I don't need to record Programmes as would never have time or be bothered to watch them...Plus with latest TV's so much 'on there' that you can watch pretty much anything on catch up...or On Demand etc ....So this Basic Box is great! It gives me access to all the TV that I need.

The Company that I Ordered with was quite a bit cheaper ( maybe about £15 ) than the others !! So GREAT SAVINGS and ARRIVED SUPERFAST...PACKED SAFELY would recommend 5 STAR

If you're thinking of buying this now and you need BBC iPlayer, then don't, its an old product from 2013 which will no longer be supported by BBC iPlayer from September 2016.

Citation - [...]

If you need iPlayer then buy a Freesat box which supports Freetime or the V3.

They would have known about this when I bought it and I'm still seeing it on sale still as have the BBC iPlayer facility. So only one star for cheating me.

Compact and basic, but in its own way quite pleasing. I'm currently running this side by side with the double the price Humax HB1000s to compare and here are a few observations for any fellow budget Freesat-ers.

The Plaza HD-S2 has fantastic picture quality, nothing remotely budget about that, even the Standard Def stuff on several normal channels upscales so nicely that it's hard to tell you're not in HD on smaller screens, watching an old black and white movie, it knocked freeview and even the Hummy into a cocked hat. Deep and rich.

It's very easy to set up and comes with everything you need, batteries, HDMI cable, etc. Tunes in quickly and easily and pulls in just about every channel you need. The interface is a little dated, blocky and bright on the eyes, especially compared to "<free time>" boxes, but if that doesn't bother you, it is also very easy to sort and scan through, lots of info on the screen at the same time, the ability to create your own guides/favourites mixed from freesat and non freesat channels is a very nice option, well done Manhattan!

Where it fails to impress for me is in the full EPG guide screen, there is no thumbnail of the current program and not even sound, just silence whenever you bring up the EPG, more annoying than you may imagine if you're used to ambient noise. I found the remote a little too cheap, fiddly with some hard to find buttons, especially in the evening/night, often used buttons hard to stab in low light movie watching conditions. Would have happily paid and extra £10 to have a similar remote to the Plaza HDR-S, perhaps there is an all in one out there that can replace it.

You have to keep in mind it's a £50 box though, with stunning picture quality and small dimensions, the User interface seems last generation at just the wrong time but the actual performance is good.

Looking at others who have had problems, this Freesat box seems to have common faults - an INABILITY TO RECOGNISE YOUR POSTCODE and a PROBLEM DURING INSTALLATION with recognising the signal from the satellite dish.

If you get it working it's a bit of a miracle, but it can be done, but it defaults to LONDON CHANNELS so if you live in London you may not notice the problem. But elsewhere you will.

Let me say from the outset that my dish positioning is fine because I have previously used a Goodmans box.
My signal strength is over 90% and signal quality is 97%.

The first response from technical support was 'there's a problem with the dish. You need an attenuator. You can buy one from Maplins'. I clearly don't but it's a very easy way of getting you off the line and wasting a couple of days getting one installed only to find out that it's not the right answer.

When I pointed out the weaknesses in his solution he managed to get me off the line by asking for my postcode so that he could 'check it'. He could have checked it then and there as it's a no-brainer to sort and doesn't get the problem solved but nevertheless it got me off the line.

Anyway I eventually called the technician back to find that 'oh, you need to send the box back. It has a fault.' He could have told me this by asking the right questions, accepting my answers and telling me then-and-there. But he didn't.

If you know that your dish has been properly installed with good signal strength and quality and your Manhattan Plaza HD-S2 has problems at install and then when you finally persuade it to work defaults to London channels don't be fobbed off by their 'technical support'. You have a faulty box.

Do I want another one? No. I don't need these problems.
