Q & As


Goodmans GDB18FVZS2 Freeview Digital Receiver 3.8 5 20 20
Short lived I bought this product to allow an old bedroom TV to be used with the digital transmissions, and did not want any fancy features (or price!). At first it was ok except colours a bit dark, but after a couple of days the box repeatedly froze. . Only removing the power and reconnecting allowed the box to work again - for a while. Aerial signal was strong and error free. Returned to JL for refund. 18 August 2014
Poor quality product The first one regularly exhibited a frozen screen after 6 months of use. I threw it away and replaced it as I thought it was a one off issue. Replaced it with the same product which again regularly froze the screen after 2 weeks of use! Will return for a refund asap. John Lewis should cease stocking this product. 13 August 2014
Great value Good item for the price, does what it promises. If you want a cheap box to let you watch TV on a second set, this is worth it. 05 August 2014
Cheap as Chips Bought this in Feb 2014 and although I knew it was cheap I assumed that JL would only stock products that would last for a reasonable amount of time. Basically the box freezes, sound loss, cannot change channels. I would not recommend this product if you need it for you main TV viewing. I am going to get my money back and might as well buy an even cheaper one from a competitor and expect to throw it away in a year! 01 August 2014
Dinky The receiver was much smaller than expected and therefore takes up a lot less space than my previous digital receiver, which is nice!. Unfortunately the handset is also minuscule, which makes it a bit fiddly to use. I also preferred the TV guide function on my old receiver to this one. 17 June 2014
Great product I wanted a tv freeview box with no frills - no bundles etc., and this was perfect - easy to install, perfect picture and really inexpensive. I am so grateful to the John Lewis advisor for having the patience to steer me through until we found the right product - I am not exactly an expert in this sort of thing, but it was simple 10 June 2014
Economical. Efficient. Easy to Install. Much better than all my previous Freeview receivers. 13 May 2014
Poor product Cheap little plastic thing would be fine if it worked. Bad quality picture for the two weeks before it stopped turning on. Returned it for refund. 11 February 2014
