Hello Gombyz,
Well I own a V7s and it’s later model comparing with V7.I have no complaints with it and I think the main advantage is that it has two usb slots and if not mistaken its hardware should be also larger and now the choice is yours

Reminds me of this huge abandoned Earth Station in Longonot perhaps owned by KBC ?

Recommended for ASAS tourism.
The huge 49yr old dishes are wasting away..

Several satellite receivers are arranged at the bottom of the Rift Valley, a symbol of the early technological accomplishments of the nation.
A satellite earth station is a specialised terrestrial terminal used to communicate with satellites. The Longonot Earth Station is a telecommunications satellite port, colloquially known as a teleport.

A teleport typically has one or more parabolic antennae that function as a hub connecting to the telecommunications satellite. When the first earth station located south of Mount Longonot was built, it served the entire East African Community.

In 1968, Kenya and her neighbours became members of Intelsat, the global satellite consortium. The membership granted the region the right to set up earth stations to access Intelsat’s communications satellites.

Through the East African Exchange Telecommunications (Extelcoms), Kenya built the first antenna at Longonot.

To commemorate the feat, the East African Postal Services issued a series of stamps. Some featured a silhouette and others a sketch drawing of the single monstrous receiver.

Despite this show of unity, the telecommunications achievement was at odds with the political underpinnings of the regional body. The political union gradually withered, bringing down with it Extelcoms, which was replaced by Kenextel, and ultimately the Kenya Posts and Telecommunications Corporation (KP&TC).

At independence, there was a wide belief that economic union and common infrastructure would be reconciled with national sovereignty through a regional body. With time, however, the desire to maintain the East African Posts and Telecommunications Corporation (EAP&TC) as a common going concern came in direct contradiction with the changes in the three countries
