HUMAX HB-1000S Freesat HD : Straight from the box.

Brilliant product, we live in a rural area close to the peak district where there are only a few freeview channels available. Decided to give this box a try and it’s great. Works straight away from the box, plug in and your ready. Many more channels available without a contract. Really pleased i bought this.

Wonderful device, easy to use, versatile and just does what i want from a freesat box and real value for money.

Plug in a usb hard disk to record but as there is only one tuner you can’t watch one live channel while recording another. You can however watch iplayer or netflix etc while recording.

Pleased with it, it works well.

Slow interaction but good picture quality. Picture quality is excellent. My problem with this is the slowness of the menu system for on-demand programmes. Navigating around is tedious to say the least. I have a smart tv with a similar problem. If you only use it for live broadcasts it will not affect you.

Worked straight from the box. Picture quality is excellent and, even though i am not used to the remote control set up, it was easy enough to get to grips with. I have paired this with a sonnics 500gb hdd and both are working superbly. I would thoroughly recommend this product.

I purchased this item for an elderly relative who has. I purchased this item for an elderly relative who has trouble with normal tv signal in his area. It was to replace a sky box (without subscription) that he had been using for a number of years and seemed to be getting past it. Installation was speedy and he was up and running in no time.

Humax is the best there is – great product, good value delivered promptly.

Great little freesat receiver. Reading the many mixed reviews i was worried that this freesat receiver might disappoint me. But fortunately my courage was well rewarded: this is a great product, very easy to set up, phenomenal tv guide (epg), big and clear remote control, the menu system is easily comprehensible – no printed manual necessary. I am using a usb hard drive (hdd) 250 gb to record programmes – this works fine. I only had to go to the settings menu first and dedicate the hdd to the receiver. (the factory safety code for accessing this menu item is 0000 by the way)my receiver’s not connected to the internet so i’m not using the on demand services. I can highly recommend this product and will update my review if any negative issues should arise.
