"Exceeds Competition"4.5 starson by jerrywl
Pros: Speed and HD
Cons: Search Function
Summary: Very good unit. I had Direct's standard definition DVR and it took forever to move through the menu. Dish's DVR is fast!!! Also Dish's multiple room concept with one unit is a smart money saving idea.
Only negative for this unit in comparison to Direct's unit, is the awkward means to search for movies and favorite stars. Direct TV unit have built-in list and all you have to do is click on a star and the unit will find the programming.
