Thinking of Buying Hama DIT2100MSBT
« on: 10:08:34 | 25 January, 2021 »
I am looking to replace my Revo Mondo if the Reciva service is about to shut down. Can the knowledgeable folk here confirm that the Hama DIT2100MSBT does NOT use the Reciva aggregator? There is no point buying it if it does.

Thanks

David

I bought one last autumn on Amazon.co.uk and had it shipped to the states.  It uses the Frontier Nuvola station aggregator, not Reciva.  I'm liking it, a lot.

I can also confirm that the Hama DIT2100MSBT (I also have one) does not use Reciva. Like all current Hama models, it uses the Frontier Nuvola portal.

Thanks guys - that's what I needed to know.

I did ask on Amazon and I had responses like "it just connects to the Internet" and "it's not an Internet router" which wasn't helpful.

Answers on Amazon are generally (but not always) useless. People feel the need to give anwers like "I don't have one of these so I don't know" or "I've never tried that so I don't know". Then there is Amazon's habit of lumping items with different features together on one page, and you don't know which item or variant thereof people are asking or answering about.

Sometimes, however, the seller or brand answers questions about their products, and sometimes they know what they're talking about.
