HD51 4K Advice on next box



I’ve had a Zgemma h2.s for 2 years and looking for the next box. Use is FTA channels and IPTV.

Have always had my eye on the hd51, is this still a strong box for the money? Or is the new hd60 better?

The HD60 only has a single tuner as far as I know.
The HD51 is a fantastic box and is still probably my most reliable and fastest box.
The Zgemma H7 is also worth considering as it (imho) is on a par with the HD51.
