I am very pleased with mine, even at $199. It is simple to use without a lot of bells and whistles. I time-shift and have not had a problem. There is no indication of the size of the hard drive but two hours of HD from satellite only uses 1 % of the available space. I have not connected an antenna but OTA may use more data.

Unless the receiver transcodes to HEVC, OTA will use considerably more storage -- especially the HD channels.

Orby uses h.265 that offers perhaps four times better compression than MPEG2 (used for almost all OTA broadcasts) and much of their content isn't full HD so they pick up significant savings there in terms of GB/hour.

I was on the fence, but got an email (Google knows) it was only $99 so got one.
Self installed and activated today.
So far I like it, lighter on features than DTV, but for $80 less a month I can adjust.
