    If you have a subsidised install via SKY then you will not get a choice in the matter, truth be told there is not that much of a difference between the latest generation STB's from the manufacturers compared to the first STB's which could vary dramatically in speed and reliability.
    The Panasonics still seem to have the best reputation but PACE have always been there or there abouts, Amstrad is putting it's rep behind it with the DRX400 and Thomson are a new supplier (Just bought out Grundig) so too early to see if there may be issues with their SKY digibox.

    You may get the choice of digibox if you order from a dealer although you won't get the £1 install that SKY offer for online orders.

    Here are some examples of SKY digiboxes although the site is not upto date.....
