Question........

Im a Technomate user and been out of the sat market for a while and Im looking for advice.

Im looking at a Dreambox 800 HD but not knowing enough about them Im looking to pick your brains. Now, I know there are origilal boxes and clones but how much are they worth 2nd hand and are they worth buying 2nd or get one new!

Any help would be greatfull.

Regards

i would advise to buy new Dm800hd original no clone .
ive had mine 18 months now and i like it very much indeed i have seen a few friend's dm800HD clone boxes go into wheelie bin its not worth buying 2nd hand garbage Or clones you'll always regret this move and not have a good genuine box what you can put any image you fancy on it and have total stability for this i would certainly pay a few quid extra and buy the real deal it should cost no more than 400 euros hard drive obviously will cost extra .
hope this helpes .

I have just invested in a clone - just over 200. So far, so good apart from a noisey fan (I believe the originals don't come with a fan and may be subjec to overheating issues. Anyhow, HD pictures are excellent and after graduating from a eagle box (DM500 clone) the set up wasn't too bad. I am only 3 weeks into my new experience so time will tell in terms of longevity. pleased so far

I've been very satisfied with my clone thus far. It costs half as much as the original, which is worth the hassle to search for a good patched firmware (there's plenty of them). Don't know about lifespan, I've only had it for a couple of months.
Also be on the lookout for shady online sellers that sell old clones (you best get one with SIM2.01, older ones also have tuner bugs), bricks instead of electronics or clones for the price of an original...

Thanks all for the info but I finally jumped and grabbed one for 156.14 ($247.42) inc delivery from Dsatv.

Box has been shipped and looking forward to its arrival soon.

The box has the following:

Bootloader 75# sim2.01
GP4.60 Installed with fan (quiet)
Tuner Rev K
1 year warrenty

Hope I've not done a silly thing.

Thanks all.

wow that was cheap!!!!

i bought my clone for 215 delivered

had no fan and i have put my own inside! (am guessing prob is the same place lol)

i have not had a single problem with it

at the minute u are just paying over price for an original, but you will get support
unlike me if mine blows up its the bin where original you are fully supported! :)

Can get them now for $240 with delivery so it shows they are dropping in price.

Anyway, received my box today and had a little play via my S*y dish not much came up but will soon get my big dish up and running.
