Criteria Comments Rating
  • Ease of use Its the same Sky+ service that Sky Customers have come to know and love. The new HD EPG is a massive overhaul over the original. Even your gran could use Sky. great!
  • Design and form factor The newer editions of the Sky+ box (In 250GB Capacity) have a smaller 'slim' form factor compared to the previous generation. great!
  • Storage capacity The storage capacity is somewhat small (250GB) and can get filled up quickly. HD shows can take between 1 and 3%, while SD shows are considerably less. so-so
  • Expandability While there are USB & eSata ports, the box cannot be expanded and recorded shows cannot be transferred due to licensing. poor
  • Other features (networking, etc.) Remote Record, Series Link, Sky Anytime & Anytime+, Sky Store, BBC iPlayer (Coming Soon) and ITV Player (Coming Soon). good
