  • dreambox 518 good buy

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    cheapest 518 that i could find including customs charges

    has built in power supply no need for power supply dangling at back of it like 500s

    on/off switch on back

    has digital audio output

    has 12v dc output to power a wifi bridge

    blue light in front panel thats indicates that ethernet cable is plugged in

    500s doesnt have this

    Cons:

    build quality is a little poor where ac cable plugs into box... it was lose on two boxes i bought

    so be careful when plugging it in and out

    thats the only fault i had with box

    OtherThoughts:

    no scart connection ya have to use red whit yellow rca cable

    theres no card reader in the box so ya cant read your card

    theres no antenna out on box

    none of theses things bother me though as i knew before i bought it

    Bottomline:

    if your just looking for a box to watch SD television

    and dont need the card reading capability

    or scart connection this is the perfect box

    as its a lot tidier with the internal power supply

    and the blue led on front to let you no ethernet is connected is a big bonus
