Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect - does exactly what it says on the box! Plug in the Satellite wires, plug in the box and connect it to the TV and away you go ... Or, so it should be ... we had an unhelpful 'no signal' message, the only help on the box was 'make sure the plugs are pressed on securely' on the back of the box. On closer inspection we found there was a small issue connecting the box to the satellite as the plugs had been on the satellite wires for a very long time and the copper had tarnished. A pair of wire cutters and stripper helped us get 'the show on the road', and hey presto, after giving it all a new start, off we went. Very happy to now have a full range of freeview/freesat channels in an area where the freeview reception is poor and almost totally fails during poor weather. Pausing and rewinding live tv is great, and all the favourite catch-up channels are there too - perfect. A small technical issue with ordering online, but a phone call to the 'mail order department' solved everything. Free next day delivery too :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressive kit but suffers with minor design flaw It's basically a good idea & with 2tb of space it is just what I need as I have to keep certain programmes over a long period. The problems are a one-size-fits all remote, which can be quite annoying as it will work on all Humax branded gear(whatever the name on the box says.) My only answer to this is make home "defenders" to block other equipment, what a pain.) The under pining's on all machines are good, other tan they are slower to re-act than other models. However, I've got 3 of them Freeview/Freesat & a back-up so it can't be too bad, can it?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Backed by good service A replacement for a Panasonic unit this is much smaller and lighter BUT has compatibility issues with my humax freeview unit. Thanks to continuing support from the Preston team issue overcome - cannot recommend Freesat units.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Missing basic, intuitive, user-friendly actions. I’m really disappointed with this. Unlike some people, I don’t come from the point of view of comparing to paid Sky TV. I’m comparing this to, most recently & relevantly, a Humax Freesat recorder for 5 years (& experience of various Freeview recorders many years ago.) I was expecting something pretty decent for this price. With the exception of the possibility to have 4 tuners (if modifying the dish’s LNB), I find this “clawsome” / ‘awsome’ box (odd Freesat advertising play on words with claws) sluggish and basic, & as feels like a downgrade from Humax for basic day-to-day watching/recording. NO SKIP BACK/FOWARD BUTTONS: When using pause on live TV, or during a recording, there’s no quick back/forward eg. 30 secs/1 minute. ⏮ ⏭ There’s only traditional “rewind” & “forward” ⏪ ⏩ (x2, x4, x8, x16, x32.) You then have to press play again. Surely they could have put a ‘skip’ button. Humax even allowed you to determine the time it skipped (e.g 30 secs to 3 mins), & it just kept playing. Set at 2 minutes on my former box, 2 quick skips forward & it almost perfectly avoided the breaks. NO DEDICATED REMOTE BUTTON FOR RECORDINGS LIST: If people buy a RECORDER, surely their own recordings are a priority to them. It’s useful to have a direct BBC iPlayer (Netflix, ITV), but why was it deemed best to omit a “recordings” button meaning you have to choose “home", then scroll down then, then press “OK”? That might not sound too arduous, but with the 4K box being a bit slow and clunky generally, it just seems like unnecessary extra steps could’ve had their own shortcut button. After the radio, my own recordings are what I use the box & TV for most, much more than live TV. PLAYING RECORDINGS: The tedium continues… when selecting which recording to watch/listen to, I expect just to press the play button. That would be too simple for this Freesat box. You have to press on the recording, then click “OK” to watch/continue watching. The same goes if you’re watching a programme, & stop it. You can’t just press play again, you have to go down the list and press the programme, and press ok to watch! It might sound petty, but these are such basic functions which could be so much simpler! NO VIEWING EPG/MENUS WHILE WATCHING A RECORDING: While watching a recording, I’m accustomed to being able to check menus, e.g. look at the guide, look at the settings, but that’s too much for this basic thing. If you press tv guide, it stops the recording you’re watching, and takes you back to the TV. You’ve then got to go menu > recordings > select ok > select continue watching > ok. I also would expect to be able to check the recordings list, planned etc., while watching a recording. Nope. Press the home button, the recording stops. Obviously if one were to move to on-demand, it would be expected your recording stops, but to close down what you’re playing in order to just view a planned recording or reminders list?!? So tedious. Not that I need to on a daily basis, but I’d think you should also be able to access settings with a recording playing in the background. These things aren’t exactly critical. But they’re pretty simple, intuitive, helpful, user-friendly actions that other, cheaper, devices have bothered with. I am just throughly disappointment they couldn’t be bothered to pay a bit more attention to small details. & just so this isn’t 100% a moan, there are 2 small things that I found this an improvement on the Humax. When changing channel, the pause feature works more quickly on the new channel, where the Humax displayed a message to wait if I tried straight after changing. And this remote automatically worked for the power on/off on my old Samsung TV. On a side note, the service from Richer Sounds was excellent. That would be a 5-star review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Freesat Upgrade - Delighted Bought this to upgrade from my older (but still good) Humax Box. The Freesat UHD-4X 2TB was easy to install and to set up, and provides all the facilities I require. The vision and sound are excellent, and the 2 TB capacity is ideal. Glad I made the purchase

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and no subscription! Easy to use. Great picture and no subscription fees. Always seem to get a better picture from Freesat than Sky, don't know why. Kicked Sky into the long grass and now enjoying the same channels I like but for free!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Freesat UHD-4X 2TB So glad I purchased this from Richer sounds, next day delivery with great tracking to my door. Simply unplugged my Sky Q box, connected both LNB cables into the Freesat box and voila, able to record 4 channels at the same time from all the free satellite channels including BBCHD, ITVHD, CH4HD, CH5HD, just what I wanted, no more pricey subscription charge to SKY. So a big goodbye to expensive SKY and hello to free Feesat. Excellent picture quality, great menu's and great buttons, took me all of 2 minutes to master. I honestly couldn't be happier with this purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good features, but glitchy on playback I bought this product a month ago. Very happy with the ability to record 4 programmes, picture quality and ability to tap into on-demand services. Unfortunately, the playback facility is very glitchy and there is a period of 5 seconds with no picture and no sound, then sound and finally both picture and sound appear.. I responded to Richer Sounds Customer Services and received excellent service. The box was replaced, but the same fault occurred and I was then offered a refund. However, I decided to keep the box, the positives outweighing the one negative.
