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
