"Great DVR, better than TiVo"4.0 starson by BrettCNet
Pros: Easy to use, great features, remote works very well
Cons: Not many actually
Summary: I saw a couple of negative reviews and just couldn't help myself. I just wanted to say that I love this DVR (I also have the Vip622), it is very easy to use and the remote works especially well to easily skip through commercials 30sec at a time, go back 5sec, setting up timer events is a breeze and it does a good job skipping duplicate events. I also really like all the guide modes that it offers and channel surfing and finding future events to record is very easy, while still watching the main show. So great job Dish! I tried using a "real" Tivo at my in-laws, and found it very difficult and not user friendly at all.
