I've owned it for about a year and think I've spent more time turning it off and on to try forcing it to reconnect. I've got it plugged in and speed testing at 360mbps and it drops off about once every 10 mins, takes about 5 goes to reconnect and sometimes just glitches out to the point where you can't turn it on or off, just a black screen with a white light on the box and won't do anything. It's terrible

Terrible, terrible, terrible...
Bought a Vodafone TV to improve picture quality....what a joke...
I have 900mbs internet connection and connected box via ethernet cable.
Picture was blurry and colours were over saturated.
Thought this would be a huge improvement versus standard aerial but result was really disappointing.
TV picture streaming from Apple TV was much better.

Good but it does have some issues
Got this last week to replace a STB, since it was not much more than the cheapest STB I could find, plus it had the bonus of in-built Netflix. Setup went smoothly. The unit seems very responsive to the remote and I had no problems using Netflix. I haven't tried installing any other streaming services yet so I can't comment on those.
The issues I have had so far relate to the live TV support. There was no problem installing the free to air TV stations and the process is pretty much the same as for any STB. However, being hearing impaired I rely...on subtitles, and the default subtitle size is *huge* and they don't always fit on the screen properly. I tried the options under "close caption customisation" to reduce the size and also change the colours yet these seemed to have no effect. Another problem I found is that if I changed stations by flicking through them rapidly, often the sound would drop off. Restarting the unit solved the problem but it is annoying.

Doesn't work with NTFS
Useless for me because it doesn't support video files larger than 4gb. It would have been a perfect kodi media player. But if you just want it as a TV tuner for a projector or something, it will work fine.

Could have been great
Fairly good unit
HDMI and live tv issues
Doesnt support items it should
Have been overall dissapointed in what should have been a great unit, would love to see them support it better and keep it current

Android TV 9 Pie update killed it!
Amongst many other bugs, the latest update has removed the use of its USB for NTFS formatted external hard drives. Now useless to me and have requested a refund. Avoid!

Wish I never had
I have had to contact them a number of times. I am using a wifi connectors and these seam to have a extremely limited range of 10 Mtrs and continue to drop out and loose connection add to this a lot of the content I wish to record wont record. Also forwarding and rewinding functions are not user friendly.
Terrible product and service.
Terrible product and service from Vodafone Macarthur store. The manager was extremely rude and unhelpful. Did not give a refund. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. If faulty, and it is most likely, they will send for repairs or give a replacement. Waste of time and money.

Very disappointed with Vodafone
Very disappointed with this as when we got the receiver, wont work. Was told to take to our local branch in Carnes Hill branch. When we got there, they told us to go to Liverpool branch. Went there but they told us to contact Vodafone and get a receipt number.Rang them and was transfered from one person to another and wanted us to pay. After nearly 2 hours, we managed to arrange one for free which we are still waiting. Very disappointed with Vodafone.
