"What more could you ask for??!!"5.0 starson by Dat270
Pros: Storage; ease of use; picture quality
Cons: It is really hard to come up with any!
Summary: I just upgraded to the Vip 722. The choice was easy and I have NO regrets. I had DirectTV before I switched to Dish SD. I was much more impressed with Dish, Hands Down. Dish suited my channel choices much better than Direct. Then after six months of SD, I bumped up to HD. On my Vizio 37 LCD, I get a great picture from HD and the SD isn't bad either. The completely user friendly basic function is great for even my 5 year old. She can easily find her recorded Sponge Bob's in 2 seconds flat. Plus the ability to fine tune and take full advantage of the Vip 722's high end features was easy to find and set up for a technofile like me. My girlfriends brother has Driect HD and I find that the picture quality is exactly the same, the programming on Direct, for my likes, is lacking and the user interface and remote are much more convoluted on Direct.
The DVR storage and retrieval on Dish is perfect. I can scan the progams list, my recordings and menu with ease. The DVR is phenominal. I haven't had a single complaint or issue with Dish at all.
