I am very surprised by the low value rating - I have been using BT vision for a couple of years or more and am very satisfied. Once having paid for the box you do not have to pay a subscription. In fact I use it to stream a few films a month, ending up costing me around a fiver.





The lack of HD content and download times is disappointing, but should not affect your internet speed massively - as I understand it the amount of bandwidth BT Vision can takeup is limited, which is why it takes longer to download than the Xbox. And I am surprised by yourt comment regarding the picture quality of Freeview, in my experience, when upscaled to 720p it is vastly superior to other freeview boxes, including my Toshiba's built in freeview tuner.





My only reservation about recommending it now is that a new BT Vision box is due in the Autumn, which "may" unlock a lot of the features of the MS MediaRoom software (please BT, let it become a media hub!).





So if you are an occasional movie viewer, don't want to subscribe to a load of extra channels you won't watch and fancy a PVR for a song, I think BT Vision offers excellent value ...
