I'm really tired of this forum and the repeated cycle of posts. There are *clearly* lots of people that find the unit slow, unresponsive, frustrating, etc. This is a valid position, almost always stated in a respectful way by people who have paid good money for the product.
Then there are the moderators and a handful of yes men that simply refuse to accept these views.
Fact: Some people like the unit, some people do not like it. I would say to anyone who is generally a power user of technology (i.e. people who are used to navigating menus quickly and efficiently) may well find the unit to be frustrating. Less demanding users may not notice.
Barry is clearly a Humax fan and has the ear of the company itself. I thank him for putting the work and effort into contributing to the forum but I don't think he can be seen as entirely impartial.
