These boxes are perfect for converting 32" or smaller monitors to bedroom TVs. Gives you smart features and terrestrial telly. The box makes the monitor go to sleep by itself after a set amount of time. Using the remote wakes it up again.

The fan inside can be distracting for those hyper sensitive to sound, not sure if the build has changed since 2018 when I got one.

YouTube vids show how to disconnect the fan, it's unknown how this would affect the longevity of the box.

Edit:
They ripped out the tuner it seems:

Thanks mogsog, I was strongly considering this as an update to our older model from like 2017/18 but if it no longer has the Freeview tuner I'm out. My favourite thing about the box is that it lets me watch and pause live TV and is the primary reason I have it given the number of other devices I can watch on demand content on.

No problem, It's unfortunate, the whole box is a loss leader so I suppose it was inevitable they would leave out the tuner as it's not associated with the services they are trying to flog.

Now starts the scramble to grab a few older ones from where I can before they disappear for good.

Build quality wise you won't find a better dvbt2 tuner box.
Great price with passes. Has an ethernet port as well which is the only reason why I kept this over the roku stick +
