Pros: Can use external drive to supplement storage size.
Cons: On 3rd 722 in 3 months. Cannot do 3D Cannot do 1080P Built like a toy Slow Non-HD interface Menus are horribly confusing Programming is a true pain in the neck Runs hot Includes requirement to deal with Dish (who are the worst)

10 April 2011
Pros: Able to drive all the TVs in your house by "backdriving" the existing wires in the house and using RF remotes Able to reccord from 2 HD tuners and 2 OTA tuners all at the same time. 50 hours of HD or 350 houors of SD DVR capacity standard HD DVR conten
Cons: Even if your watching the same channel, if you decide to hit reccord half way in it doesn't pick up the stuff prior to hitting the button. Guide is not as good as comcast or verizon. (No sub 30 minute partitioning) Sometimes titles don't show up, Tuner
Pros: You can also watch live TV on your iPhone or Droid phone**There is a remote that you can also use to control your rcvr**You can manage your DVR's, resolve scheduling conflicts, search your program guide
"This receiver is an excellent choice for movie lovers."

Pros: A full featured receiver that delivers all that's promised. Easy to use and I like that you can connect an external hard drive to extend your recording capacity indefinately. It accepted my two terabyte box. You can order PPV using your remote..
Cons: Dish Network sent me four of them before I got one that didn't have a hard drive or internet connection failure within two months.
Pros: -Great picture quality. -High DVR capacity. -Can pause Live TV on 2 televisions if you aren't recording anything. (Wait... That's actually a "Con", in my book.)
Cons: -Can't watch live TV while recording. -Changing channels is very slow. -Rewind and Fast Forward speeds are very inconsistent, easy to overshoot. -Menu is not intuitive; particularly with regard to Timers. -Software is a bit buggy and clunky.
"Worst DVR I ever installed and I've installed them all!"
4 May 2010
Pros: You can watch in two different rooms
Cons: The interface is horrible. It records the same episode of a show multiple times. I am on my 5th box as the first four stopped working. Dish claims they are the editors choice on cnet yet i can't find that on cnet anywhere.
