I've had this unit for a few weeks now and think it's fantastic for someone wanted Freeview HD on the cheap with a simple small box. The picture quality is excellent cant go wrong really :-).

I ordered one in the early hours from amazon last night/today's date. It's been dispatched 9pm today Friday. Free trackable courier delivery. I'll receive it Tuesday as it's bank holiday Monday. £27.50. If it's as good as people say it is then it's a bargain!
