Vusi, South Africa. 1 April 2014
It is a good device that does what it is meant to do. After use of the device I can say the following:
1. Once activated, it is very easy to link the device to your Wireless capable devices.
2. Nice way to get updated or watch available programming away from your home (or even at your home when the madam decides to watch Masterchef or something and you need to watch a live match).
3. Lovely size, fits into pocket very nicely and easy to carry around.
4. Takes a reasonable time to fully charge from empty (I think it's just over an hour).
5. Can be charge on a power outlet or any USB source (giving you options here).
6. Free subscription for Premium subscription makes it worth-while.
7. Your viewing will not be limited to a certain kind of devices (so, you can watch on either your Apple, Android, Windows and more devices).
8. Well built and good looking device I would say.
1. Not the greatest of video quality for quality-conscious people like me.
2. Activation via DSTV's website is not always enough, you might still need to get some assistance from a Multichoice agent anyway due to a subscription error(but not that much of a mission).
3. You won't go for very long hours of viewing without having to charge the devices' battery (understandably so because of the device's battery size and we know what WiFi signal does tend to drain batther power, even on our usual cellphones).
