I don't expect this unit to have durability. It has already proven to be problematic with the simplest of task. e.g. channel surfing. If you change the channel too quick, too slow or too many times using the -P/+P, the box freezes on the existing channel and every function on the remote becomes disabled. Then you have to power off the unit and reboot the box frequently. Also, the HD channel quality is not better than the HD free channels, in fact the sound quality is lacking.
Furthermore, you have to buy additional equipment to use the slot in front. It's not all bad, but this will be my first and last purchase of an ICECRYPT box. I would not recommend it.
