Pros:
works just like a dream. the one i received looks the same as in the pictures, but mine says 528-S on the box and the stb. otherwise everthing spec wise and look of it are the same. someone mentioned there was blue led light on the front to show network activity, this one does not, has a green led light that is bright enough you can see through the case.
my favorite things
1) has component and rca outputs right on the back, no more scart adapters!
2) No more external a/c power adapter` brick, the power supply is tiny and inside the case
3)has a switch, to turn on and off others dont
4) has 12v dc output connector, useful for an ethernet bridge or adapter.
works just like a dream no problems
Cons:
screw holes on side of case were put together sloppy, and scratched, i took them out and put them in straight.
power connector and power rocker switch are loose, they wont break, but higher quality could have been used.
remote control feels cheap, but it works, and is not cheap enough i feel it will break., i think it will last for some time
Other:
Bottomline:
i will order again
