    I've just seen the new designer Sky+ boxes in the news section here and I think I may throw up ! I really can't see the point of these, why don't they produce better boxes with bigger hard disks instead of something that looks like an explosion in a Dulux factory ?

    It is a bit bizarre, better build quality and alternative specs would have been more appropriate for SKY's customer base. I suppose it's just a marketing gimmick and will no doubt attract some attention from the press and people in the stores that are selling them, which is probably the only reason for the "designs".

    I dread the day when my wife decides to change a brown goods item jsut because she's redecorating a room in a different style.
    Those boxes belong at a Laura Ashley shop.

    Gloss black would be fine. Not sure about red though either. Don't want it standing out in the room.
