Goodmans-Grundig intros identical Freeview HD set-tops

As does Grundig-Goodmans...

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

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. ®
