The Tablo Quad arrived in excellent condition. The only thing I didn't like was it didn't come in the original box but that is to be expected considering it is a refurbished unit.


I t does not work


Never ever ever purchase this item from Tablo. The customer service was horrifying. I tried to do everything humanly possible to get this working and they refuse to help me. They just waited two weeks to answer me and then let the warranty run on purpose. Only buy this item at a store where they have a real return policy.


Very happy

Quad OTA Re-ferb Was Bad Out Of The Box

Very disappointed. The one I was sent would do nothing. Blue light was on constantly and the setup instructions were a fail. I sent it back. I think I know why they do not support the Quad OTR HDMI units. My understanding is Scripps bought Tablo. Can't have the general public watching and recording TV with out getting some payment. American TV is difficult and the FCC has done nothing to protect us. These comments likely will be never seen.
