Clone stb's? - 30-March-2009, 15:31

I am new to the DB & would like to cs nds uk & was thinking of swapping from my Triple Dragon a friend suggested a DB500s clone as he claims it has the same tuner as the original.
I would like to read some of your views I have seen a DB500s for sale on here for 57 this stb seems very in-expensive is it worth buying genuine or is a clone as good?

Ok heres the thing, real or clone ?
If you buy a clone you know exactly what you are getting> CHEAP.

If you buy real ( and before anyone says the DM500s is no longer made ) you should get QUALITY

So the choice? If your new blow up a few cheappies first

I have had alot of DM`s some clone some new some 2nd hand, so far i have killed one and wounded two

how do you kill them by loading a bad image?
I suppose I am quite lucky, I am not new to the sat scene but the only cs I have ever done was via a diablo cam & twinbase with a smartbee for Digit4lb.
I have never killed a cam or stb or smartcard but as I have said it may be just luck.

When you say cheap do you mean the quality of use or of the plastics its made from?

i suggest you buy a clone if you are new, this way you can play around and read up tutorials and eventually once you get the hang, you will want more then just a dm500, u'll want either HD or atleast move on to a PVR model

cheers

Well I was going for the 500 as a second box as they seem so inexpensive as a friend offered to cs a sly uk with me on ccam but I do like the pvr on the triple dragon, I was hoping a dream would be simplicity as I would just like to load an image set up cs & leave it...

Would I be right in thinking the dream is simple to use or not?

its very simple to use, if you are ready to learn :-)
loads of tutorials and helpful ppl here, as long as you show some will to go in the deep end, you will love your adventure

so dive in the deep end, get urself a dm800 or 8000 and you can experience hd as well as PVR, for a cost obviously (450 average for a 800)

cheers

I have a problem with that as my Sony Vega rear projection tv isn't HD so at the moment I think the stardard one is more suitable, will any image clear conax?

I friend suggested buying from a site in china as he has had a few & says they are good (80) with delivery but dvb monkey is slightly cheaper, I realise they are both copies but has anyone bought one from the monkey & if so what are your views are they any good?

buy from uk and not from china
you will have the insurance of after sales contact person and possiblity to send the box back for an exchange if it poses problems
personally i bought from linuxsat, they have good aftersales service
