" This was the fourth machine I bought. I started with a budget model and gradually increased in price. The previous three all had to be returned because of faults. This one has worked perfectly, the quality and stability of the picture is great. Cheapest isn't always the best. Sometimes you do get what you pay for. "
Yes, I recommend this product.

" This is a great set top box for the money, very easy to install, and very easy to use. My only complaint would be that the buttons on the remote control are a bit small. It has a clever sleep mode which activates after 4 hours. If none of the buttons on the remote are pushed then after a warning the set top box will go to sleep. So it is worth keeping the control close to hand. "

" When I unpacked this item I thought this aint going to be of much use. A very small set top box which gives a superb result. No wonder it is made by those techies at Pace. Enough said !!. A small price for BIG results. "

" This simple and compact appliance is easy to use. Once the aerial and required scart leads are connected; Just Plug & Play. It's as easy as that! The device will always automatically search for new channels / radio stations and is guaranteed to maximise on the strength of every channel found; no matter how little the digital reception. The EPG is excellent with the information which it provides, except that there is an inability to see the current channel / programme displayed at the same time when this option is used; which is a disadvantage. This set top box is suitable for individuals who only wish to be provided with Freeview with standard menu features. It may not be suitable for those people who wish to have extra menu options. "
