This is a discussion on F5s within the Skybox F3 - F5 - F6 forums, part of the Satellite category; ...
Been running a F5S for a few days now ,
Initial thoughts on the box are that it's no different than the F5 , and with the claims of the new tuner being better ,
Well my snr on box info is actually 2-3% lower compared to than The F5 , (nothing to do with my setup as I'm off my own dish to a multiswitch)
Only real difference is the menu layout and the different coloured LCD display is now blue not green ,
Box has ran fine tho on my server no difference in that compared to the f5 ,
Is it worth the extra £4 ?
Maybe if you want newer version
