Ordered 2 of these puppies to replace my old MAG250. I'm very impressed so far with the improvements and I totally recommend this product.
Also, service from MAG254.co.uk is awesome as always! Unknown on 6th Sep 2017
bizarre as it sounds, from what I've read, it's not yet possible - hopefully fixed in a firmware soon but what an omission!
would love someone to tell me I'm wrong and how to do it, but so far, haven't found anything! ade on 13th Jun 2017
Very Nice little bit of kit, easy to setup, but had to pay extra for UK Plug something that I think should come as standard but apart from that, Great, I did pay for next day delivery but it took 2 days? So I would leave postage as standard. Unknown on 3rd Feb 2017
The new box performs noticeably quicker than my older MAG250. Genuine sealed product with infomir factory stamp and security hologram. Very impressed with both the product and especially the service received from Simply Digital. Well worth the upgrade if you are on the older MAG250 Andy Rourke on 28th Sep 2016
The 256 is a great piece of kit. Quick and effective and easy to navigate around. It does occasionally get quite hot and you may need to unplug it once in a while.
Beyond that I highly recommend it..... Unknown on 26th Aug 2016
Just had delivery of another batch of mag boxes. Great service, all ways helpful. Glenn Rawlings on 4th Aug 2016
