    Drifta Mobile - EXCELLENT

    Great buy ! Kalahari was swift with their delivery service... a definite must-have

    Dstv Drifta

    Very happy with the Drifta but even happier with the excellent service by Kalahari

    tiny screen

    although the device very portable and works well, I feel they should use multiple DVB-H channels to feed instead of chopping up one stream(apparently) into multiple channels at the expense of video quality, the size of the video is limited to 320x240, hardly enjoyable.

    DStv Drifta Mobile Decoder

    Not at all happy! The product is of no use to me as it is totally unworkable despite the maps received from DSTV indicating the areas of operation. There is no trial products available for testing either.

    DStv Drifta Mobile Decoder

    I think your service was excellent.

    Excellent

    Order was delivered on time and eveything exceeded my expectations. Thanks for excellent service!

    Drifta - Be Cautious

    This device was a disappointment and I'm sending it back. Connecting is an issue as it loses connection all the time. However the biggest disappointment is the picture quality. If you are used to DSTV broadcasts then this device will disappoint. The picture quality is comparable to a low resolution YouTube stream.

    WORKS FINE

    WORKS FINE, NOT COMPLICATED TO SET UP. PITY ABOUT SMALL PICTURE ON MY LAPTOP.

    service and product (Drifta)

    i must say my hubby absolutely loves his Drifta its his favourite toy - its something fun and you can take anywhere and road trips no longer that boring, Received my Parcel on time and very happy with the product. will definitley order from Kalahari again :)

    Great value for money

    Although I was initially disappointed when I realised that the drifta only supports a 320 X 240 pixel resolution - even when watching on your PC - the quality is not bad. It's great to be able to watch the rugby live on Saturdays at a monthly subscription of only R49 per month.

    Too few channels

    I really hope they add some decent channels soon, the selection is VERY limited - it's like having an awesome cellphone but nobody to call! lol

    Channel Warning

    Just be aware : Certain channels(like Cartoon Network)repeats every 2 hours or so.DSTV is not very clear on this. My child was not very impressed with this!

    Drifta Channel selection

    A great device, have it connected to my laptop. Current downside is I don't watch sport, and there's 4 sports channels, that leaves me with 8. 2 news channels - not so much into news. 6 left: Not into African movies and soaps, and not into 'O' music. 4 left. Can only watch so much cartoon. 3 left. The reasonable ones: SMAX, E!, and Trace. A movie channel woulf be great.

    Excellent Product

    Easy to set up and great product. Makes sure of coverage before purchasing, check out www.dstvmobile.com for coverage map. Battery life is on the short side when using with an iPad, but comes with USB charger, so could be charged in a car even.

    drifta - check your area for signal first

    as mentioned before - check ur area for signal first before buying. Works great on iphone - good quality. on computer qaulity is not that great. pciture transitions is good but you still can see jagged motions. Cannot resize to full screen on PC. Works well if you have it in the background while doing other work.

    Not up to scratch

    I bought this mainly to keep up to date with the cricket whilst at work. The picture quality is poor.Often when a delivery is bowled, you cant see it. On screen stats and scores are barely legible. And the audio is always out of sync by 2-3 seconds. This is with a 100% signal! I wasn't expecting HD quality but for R600 plus an upcoming monthly subscription, I was expecting better than what is on offer.

    DSTV Drifta

    The Drifta is a marvelous device, a really fun toy but the channels that are on offer are a bit of a dissapointment, check the DSTV mobile website before you buy

    DSTV mobile

    The device works as avertised.... but be warned ... there is not much in terms of channels, so kinda usless ... save your money

    Looking at the Drifta? Check out the USB Drifta to

    You are looking at the original Drifta. A USB only version (which is much smaller and cheaper) has been released Check that one out too before buying this one. See unboxing and reviews here : http://j-j.co.za/2011/08/my-thoughts-on-the-usb-dstv-drifta-review/
