I'm looking for a decent dedicated FTA box to replace my Humax Foxsat-HD for 19e and I can't decide between the Openbox S10 or Dreambox 800HD or the Skybox F3 & any advice from someone with q knowledge of these boxes would be welcomed.

I only listed the Openbox S10 and Dreambox 800HD as they were the only two that came up on an eBay search other than the usual Comag and Technomate boxes.
I'll have to research the Skybox F3.

Between £45 and £60 on eBay, depending upon whether you get a Wi-Fi Dongle with it.

I'll have to keep checking back as I don't get paid for another two weeks and I've just spent the last of what I had on a dish for 19e.

Is the Skybox F3 easy to use? As I've not got any experience in using an FTA Digital box, the past FTA box I used was a Matsui Analogue box back in the old Sky Analogue days.

After a month of deciding I finally decided to go for a Skybox F3 after finding one for £47.95 from a UK Seller on eBay.

Now impatiently awaiting for my new toy to arrive.
