Sky+HD DRX 890-C vs Sky+HD 2TB DRX 895-W

Could any one tell me please other than the size of the hard drive, lack of RF out and WiFi if the DRX 895-W Sky+HD 2TB is any better in any other ways than our current DRX 890-C Sky+HD Sky box.

 

Thanks

 

Jon

Nope, other than those modifications the box is essentially the same. In fact they run exactly the same software.

Re: Sky+HD DRX 890-C vs Sky+HD 2TB DRX 895-W

Thanks for your replies, I wondered if the 895w was in any way faster as I've read that upgrading the drive on the 890c could make it slower.

 

I currently have both boxes as I upgraded to the 895w after being told by a Sky agent you could perform a peer-to-peer copy on the new box from old one.

 

Now that I know I can't copy from box to box I'm considering returning the 895w and just upgrading the 890c, because if I did want to copy to content from the old to new box I'd still have to open them up anyway.
