People want to be able to have more control over a box, like Dreamboxes and Dboxes. Starview are built to do one thing and one thing only, where someothers are able to do alot more and are easy upgradable i.e images.
I would put it like this, if you have a starvies and not seen anything else, then you will be happy as it does what it says on the box (free TV)lol but when you have a dreambox and know what it is capable of then a starview look like a nissan micra compared to a BMW M3 lol.
thats the best way i can describe it
"You cant be rich untill you have seen all the riches in the world"
"One mans junk is another mans treasure"
