“I recently bought the Metronic Zapbox and this unit...”

Written on: 03/10/2007 by 30michael (6 reviews written)

Good Points
Picture quality superb will beat it rival Bush DFTA1001 Digital SCART Adapter easily, crisp and very sharp.
The remote looks and feels like a proper unit compared with the Bush DFTA1001 which is very light and small like a really cheap toy.

Bad Points
The unit produces a oscillating noise through the TV speakers. This unit was replaced 2 times and both had the same problems. The unit does get extremely hot very quickly for such a small product.

General Comments
I recently bought the Metronic Zapbox and this unit was omitting an oscillating noise through my TV speakers. I tried a second unit and this was also causing the same problems. I tried this on 2 LCD TV's and one ordinary TV with two different aerials and all had the same problems. I know this is not a fault on my equipment as the original Freeview box did not make this noise at all. I will say the picture quality produced is superb, beats a lot of the other Freeview units out there. This could be a really good product if the manufactures could solve two problems: the heat factor and the problem the oscillating noise you can easily hear through your speakers.
