    Highest Rated Consumer Review by the Community

  • Better HD for all...

    Oct 17, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: MPEG4 capeable, ATSC tuner for OTA, recording options/flexibilty, overall features
    Cons: Earlier versions run "hot", limited HDD capacity for archiving programs, occasional temperamental operation

    Summary: Planning/Purchase: I was a DirecTV subscriber for several years before deciding to delve into the HD arena and after many phone calls to Direct, I found that my most cost effective (read cheapest) upgrade path was to switch providers and invest in Dish ... read more

  • Great for 4 years.

    Not yet rated.
    Pros: High cap storage
    Dual tuner
    simple dvr
    sleek design
    Cons: high heat output

    Summary: This unit had no problems until recently (4 years) due to us suffocating it in an enclosed area. It has a high capacity of storage and is a dual tuner, which means that you can have two televisions hooked up at once watching different things at the same ... read more

  • Better than TiVo.

    Sep 3, 2009 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: HD picture, user interface, unique features, no annoying blip noise with remote, software updated OFTEN.
    Cons: Build-in storage space, external storage activation fee, No HD on second TV.

    Summary: I've noticed that there aren't any recent reviews, and since the last review, Dish has continued to make improvements and enhancements to the software, and a lot of the complaints of other reviewers have been corrected. This review is based on the ... read more

  • Good when it consistently works, but it constantly freezes and reboots

    May 11, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Nice interface, Nice picture/sound quality, can connect 2 different TV's and watch 2 different shows.
    Cons: Terrible reliability issues, very frequent freezing, rebooting, and shows getting cut into or off completely.

    Summary: I have owned one of these for about a year now (actually I have owned 5 different of the same VIP622 model over the year because DISH has sent me replacements, but I'll get to that later). The product itself on paper is nice, it has an excellent ... read more

  • Makes you appreciate Tivo

    Mar 4, 2008 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Two-room access to DVR content.
    Cons: Everything else.

    Summary: This review is of the very similar but newer 722 DVR and service. Dish Network does NOT know their own product. In the course of switching to this unit from a Direct Tv/Tivo I had seven people at the company, including three installers, tell me point ... read more

  • My opinion after a week of use

    Feb 21, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: HD recording, 3 tuner capacity, Episode by name recording
    Cons: Standard definition needs improvement

    Summary: I just want to start off by saying that I've been a Dish Network customer since '99 and have always been completely satisified with the service that I have received. I just recently begun to have a few problems with my old Dish 721 DVR after about 3-4 ... read more

  • VIP622 - Two failed units. Jittery sound.

    Oct 29, 2008 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Great picture
    Fairly compact-sized unit.
    Cons: Sound gaps in recorded programs.
    Timer screens are way deep in the menu structure.

    Summary: I have received two different VIP622 units from Dish Network, and both have the same problem: Sound dropouts during playback of recorded programs.  There frequently are gaps in the sound, even when the picture is OK.  This only happens on ... read more

  • Great - if it's actually working!

    Rated Show
    Pros: Capability
    Cons: Frustrations with sound and picture breaking up on HD channels.

    Summary: We have had our HD system for about a year, this is our second 622 receiver. We had many different problems with the first one and Dish replaced it with another one. Didn't help much. During the last year we have experienced problems with the picture ... read more

  • Much Faster Than Other DVR's I've Had

    Feb 20, 2007 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Excellent picture quality, ease of use, monster storage space.
    Cons: Price (for now), no "jump back" built in to the FFW mode.

    Summary: We just pulled the plug on Charter and went with Dishnetwork and the new 622. So far I like it, this box is definitely faster than the previous HD-DVR's we've had in the last two years (one from Comcast and the abysmally slow and featureless MOXI Box ... read more

  • Awesome receiver Jump into HD right!

    Rated Show
    Pros: HDMI, Digital Audio out, dual tuner, RF modulator.
    Cons: No 1080p (yet), has an ethernet jack but no functionality (yet).

    Summary: This is an awesome receiver, we immediately purchased this receiver after buying an HD LCD TV. We are thrilled with what we got! This receiver has everything and room to expand. It has HDMI, Component out, S-Video out, and Composite out. It will output ... read more
