Excellent quality, very clear picture & easy to use & set recordings
great picture intuitive remote
After over 32 years with Sky it dawned on me that almost all of my recordings were of programmes freely available on freesat and that I seldom watched sky live tv. After some research I chose a humax freesat HDR with an SSD and am glad I did. Easy to setup and use and the the picture in HD is much better than that provided by sky, even the SD seems clearer. In use the box is totally silent and responds to the remote swiftly and smoothly. I had a couple of questions so contacted the seller who was able to immediately help me. Great service.
The free sat box arrived quickly. There was no setting up instructions and I was fortunate to have bought another box from a different seller and it came with instructions. Once connected I got it tom communicate with the TV and then everything went like my other box. It now works very well and I am pleased with it. I would have given it 5 stars if it had come with instructions.

Didn’t want my tv on the wall with wires hanging out as to me it looks really untidy with loads of wires, bought this Q box to attach to back of tv, all up on wall working fine with not a wire in sight, looks great, happy days.
Great product for a wire free TV
I have just finished renovating my house and one of the things that bugs me is wires showing. The Sky Q wall bracket was the perfect answer to my conundrum how I was going to avoid wires showing to the sky box. I have mounted this behind the TV, the controllers (including the infrared one) works fine and it gives a lovely neat finish to the TV. I have now used 3 of these mini Q brackets along with the larger main Q box all from this seller. The product is very sturdy and the service was great. I had a query which was answered really quickly and the products delivered on time. Would definitely recommend.
Well made and good value for money
A little more expensive that similar products, but glad I spent the extra money. This is really nicely made and fits the Sky Q Mini box really well. It's only a few millimeters larger than the box itself, so was easily hidden behind the 32" TV we have on the kitchen wall. It came with wall plugs/screws and two large velcro pads. I attached it with velcro, as there are heating pipes in the wall behind there somewhere, and it's been firmly in place for over a week

Purchased to replace my 15 year old box which gave up. As other reviews have mentioned Sky customer service are only interested in selling you a Sky Q which doesn’t interest me. This was a great price with a huge memory . Easy to install took 5 minutes and picture quality excellent . Old remote worked to do now have a spare . Needed to pair my viewing card , this took a few minutes to do myself on my Sky account online . Great purchase and would definitely recommend
If you want a replacement for your Sky + box this is practically perfect
My Sky+ box after years of fantastic service finally started playing up, unplugging from the mains worked fine when it froze for many months but then it gave up and was obviously kaput. I couldn’t face an upgrade from Sky to the ‘Q’ box as I couldn’t remember my user name or password so opted for a straight replacement. Luckily it was a dream to install simply unplugged and re-plugged all the cables reusing all my old cables ( not the telephone line because a) the new box didn’t have a port for it and b) it is redundant anyway ) pressed the WiFi button on the box, put in my old Sky card confirmed on the tv the card and machine . Even used my existing old Sky remote ( so the one you get in the package is now a spare ) how lazy is that. Honestly I’m not great technically but it was all done in fifteen minutes. Take a photo of the back of your old box and just copy it when you install the new one - idiots guide if you will.
Great looking box and replaces an identical one that was 9+ years old
I bought this after my identical box stopped working after around 9+ years of use. These kind of boxes are getting harder to find brand new, as Sky no longer produce them. Sky now produce the newer Sky Q boxes which can (at the time of this review) only be sourced from Sky. I managed to find this Sky+ HD 2TB box brand new from Chigwell Satellite. I looked at the various sellers of this box on Amazon, and Chigwell Satellite were the ones with the highest customer feedback. The box was very well packed and included with the box is a HDMI cable, power lead, remote control, and two AA batteries. However I will point out, that the picture on the Amazon page of the remote control is a different colour to the one included with the box. The picture shows a dark grey remote control (the same colour as the Sky box) but the remote that was in the box with mine is a light grey one (I do think the glossy dark grey one looked better though), no big deal for me, but it might be to some people so perhaps it might be an idea to change the picture on the Amazon page to show the correct one that will be in the box. The box was very easy to setup, as it was just connecting back up the leads I had disconnected from my old box. After connecting the power up, it takes approximately four minutes for the box to initialise. After this and inserting my old viewing card, I got a banner appearing on the screen to tell me that the viewing card needed to be paired with the new box. With the box been connected to the internet (it connects to the internet via an ethernet cable that plugs into the router or you can use WIFI if your router is a way off your Sky box) this operation could be done online and took less than 30 seconds. The box is quiet in use and looks very sleek in its dark grey colour. I had quite a lot of downloaded content on my old Sky box, and downloading the same on this 2TB box (my old box was only 1TB) has barely used any space from its massive 2TB drive. Also this box is the latest 2015 model according to the description and I can confirm this from some writing that is on the outside of the cardboard box (which mentions Copyright Sky 2015) that the Sky box is in. Also this box has built in WIFI, so there’s no need to run a lengthy Ethernet cable to it now. This box has the easy and quick WPS setup button on the front of it for easy and quick WIFI connection. Basically with a WPS button setup device, you simply press the same button on your broadband router, and then do the same on this Sky box within 1 minute and that should be it connected, no need to enter WIFI passwords. Has I already had an Ethernet cable that I used with my old Sky box, I didn’t need to use WIFI, but from what I have seen from videos showing the process, it is very quick and easy. A nice little touch was that Chigwell Satellite had placed in the shipping box some paperwork (along with the invoice) with instructions on how to setup the remote control, to control the TV functions (on/off, volume control etc). I thought this was very helpful and thoughtful, as it means the customer does not need to go online and source the information themselves, nice customer service. While on the subject of customer service. I ordered a similar Sky HD box from Chigwell Satellite a few days before this particular box, but unfortunately it was faulty and I needed to return it. There was an issue with the refund for the faulty box, and Chigwell Satellite telephoned me to apologise and sort out the resolution to the problem while they were on the phone to me. Very impressed with this level of customer service. Well, there’s not much more I can say apart from, I would definitely look at Chigwell Satellite when I need anymore Sky equipment.
