Other Thoughts:The receiver arrived ahead of the anticipated schedule. It was in perfect condition and new as advertised. Installation and setup was very easy and I was connected with Dish Network in a matter of minutes.
Other Thoughts:The other reviews say it all. This Network DVR is the best you can get in this price range and the next range up. So much better then the pc card type. The only thing that would make you pick a different unit would be if you needed more cameras.
