Sainsbury's are doing the 4K Smart Box with a free pass for £20. I decided to buy one and prefer the new way of installing the box. No need to fumble around with the remote to sign in, with a much more sophisticated set up of the box.
Gold streams a lot better as well. I found with the 1st Gen box that the stream would stutter.
I haven't got round to using the search feature, but overall, an improvement on the 1st Gen Smart Box, even if it's lost Freeview, which is no major loss.
Edit: The AFR feature is also excellent, unlike the Shield where I have to manually adjust it, on Netflix it's changing between 24Hz, 50Hz and 60Hz.
