TechRadar's verdict

"This value-for-money system is not without its flaws. Although the performance of the dish is excellent, there are some issues related to construction and setup. We also noted some daft receiver bugs that we hope will be squashed through new firmware. Yet the system's disadvantages are more than outweighed by the advantages. Audio visual quality cannot be faulted, and as long as you have no plans for multi-satellite reception or a PVR use there are plenty of features to get your teeth into. Time to get those ladders out"
