Freesat HD

Did anyone here buy one of these satellite receivers from this thread?

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/403091/hd-satellite-receiver-gds-hd-7000-h

I ask as I want a freesat HD box but as cheap as possible. I was gonna get the bush HD one which can be had new for 50 quid on ebay or you can get one of these for 80 quid or less.

I know it will not display the freesat epg but was wondering if it gives a better picture than the bush does and it is worth getting. Plus it will get all fta channels rather than having to add them manually like you do with the bush hd box. Downside is no bbc iplayer on the none freesat endorsed box which I already have on a wii anyhow.

Any opinions?

I bought the one below today - supposed to be the best out there in terms of plug and play. Recon' box £90 - 1 year warranty.

I couldn't be bothered with the whole hassle of the motorised dish carry on.

Yeah I have had the humax recorder version but sold it due to it being pants, but it turned out to be faulty or needing new firmware etc.

The bush one from what I have read is every bit as good as the humax and is much cheaper new. Its the none freesat endorsed box that interestes me though.

You can switch freesat mode off on the Humax and just scan for channels manually.

Yeah you could on the pvr version too. I was just hoping someone had experience on the other box on here. On another forum someone said it did display a good picture in both sd and hd.

You probably already know about AVForums then.
