I've just read an article saying that eliptical dishes perform much better than conventional ones. Any truth in this before I fork out for a more expensive dish?

The eliptical dishes have distinct benefits with the smaller sizes, as being offset, the LNB does not obscure any part of the dish.

Once you go past 1.5 metres or so, it probably makes little difference.
