      2TB Boxes June 2018

      Hi all,

      Currently have a 500gb HD WIFI box. Don't want Sky Q box, just need to get hold of a 2TB HD WIFI box.

      I know Sky were selling the 2TB upgrade boxes for 15 + 15 delivery a couple years back.

      I'd like to avoid ebay/amazon.

      Is there a way to buy a 2TB box from Sky still?

      Also - If I am going to buy a new box - can somebody point me to the best model number/variant to buy?

      Hello itsanewlieforme
      The Very Best non Q Box is the Sky manufactured DRX895W 2Tb (Black) with Black Remote
      this I believe was the Last 'Top of the Range' Model that Sky produced prior to the Q range
      of Boxes, My own is the previous issue which did not have Built-In WiFi & you needed a mini
      WiFi Plug-In box that is powered via the USB Port ( Not a Problem).
      I know these are still available (New) from various outlets including Amazon price around 200
      You could give Sky a ring & try to cadge One from them for a small fee + delivery I wish you Luck
      Two friends of mine bought almost New from eBay & have had No Problems with them maybe
      they were just Lucky................
      !!!!

      Just a Thought...............
      . Have a Good Evening

      I wouldn’t worry to much about buying second hand, I have brought two second hand DRX895 2TB box’s one from eBay for 15 and the other from Facebook market place for 10. Both are mint and from people who have upgraded to Sky Q. There seems to be loads about on the second hand market. ��
