"50/50 at best."2.5 starson by maddon11
Pros: Beautiful when it works.
Cons: Work out the kinks first.
Summary: I upgraded from a flawless 522 to the HD 622 recently and had nothing but headaches since the trade. First, installer put up a Dish 1000 next to the Dish 500 satellite dish. Now I have two sat dishes aside one another (looks like Mickey Mouse ears). Tech said that I would receive the best signal this way??? I thought the 1000 would take care of that. Anyway, first 622 worked for about 20 minutes after the Tech left. I called Dish, went through all the debugs, and after about 2 hours on the phone, the Tech returned, and stated the first 622 was bad. Five days later, the 2nd 622 arrived. So far, I had to reboot this 622 once due to pixelation and pauses! Arrhhhh! I am this close to switching to DirecTV. Dish did give me one month of free service for my patience. So far, 1 week, some twitching here and there, but nothing major. One more black out or pause, I'm switching the 622 back to a 522 or going to another carrier. Good luck!
