We have had 3 of the Samsung SIRU200I boxes, regrettably our oldest has finally died.
They have proved very reliable up until the channel updates where all 3 of the boxes fall over.
I assume this must be because of our area but it is still irritating to have to reset the box in order to download new channels, often loosing older ones. (read more)

The Samsung SIRU200I is a good FREEVIEW box overall!
For starters, it has a cool design. No one can really complain with the colour, design, shape or size.
With auto set-up and auto scan, installing the box couldn't be much easier. Scanning for digital services when you're not in a high signal area can take a few minutes though. Even once set up is complete, the box still has a lot to show you. For one thing it has an amazing demo feature, which will really help you to get to know your box... (read more)

Samsung SIRU200I - The Samsung box has done fairly good duty at my parent's house now since Christmas 2003. I like the simplicity of the box and that it has two scart sockets.

The remote deserves special attention as it's particularly bad.... (read more)

I bought this Samsung SIRU200I DVB when I was tired of the cheap Goodmans model I'd first bought repeatedly crashed. This I understand is common for freeview boxes. All well and good, but the model I had doesn't recover, you have to unplug it and plug it back in.
Anyway, being a tiny bit more pricey, I was swayed by the good name of Samsung, and the styling. It, at the time, was totally different to all the other boxes on the market. But the main thing that swayed me, was the second... (read more)

The Samsung SIRU200I is probably the most attractive Freeview box I've seen, at least on the outside. Given the female in my household, this was an important selection feature (more's the pity).
The auto-scan is very good and the box seems to be generally reliable, although it has reset itself once when there was some particularly bad interference due to the poor signal quality in my area.
The UI is good and easy to use and widescreen support including WSS auto-switching seems to work as... (read more)
