Goodmans-Grundig intros identical Freeview HD set-tops

As does Grundig-Goodmans...

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Grundig and Goodmans. Goodmans and Grundig. Whichever way round you prefer the names, they have both introduced the same Freeview HD receivers.

No great surprise, that - they're the same company. The Goodmans-branded box is the GDB300HD; the Grundig one is the GUD300HD.

Both pick up Freeview and Freeview HD programming and will output to standard-definition and HD TVs at resolutions of up to 1080p via HDMI and Scart portage.

The greener among you may be impressed by the boxes' sub-1W stand-by power consumption. Grundig/Goodmans certainly is - it mentions the point twice in the boxes' spec list.

It also mentions the presence of an Ethernet port for "future internet services". These, it added, include the anticipated wide roll-out of BBC iPlayer on Freeview HD boxes.

The Grundig and Goodmans boxes will shortly be available from the likes of Argos, Tesco, and Comet for around £150. ®
