Be aware that these units, for this price, are most likely Dish remanufactured units. Usually, remanufactured units are a great bargain, but a call to SolidSignal indicated that they get both types and cannot tell because they are already bundled, but logic would dictate that these are remanufactured.
However, a Hopper3 is so superior to anything else out there that it is worth the cost to buy a new or remanufactured unit. I am buying this unit for a motorcoach that I spend 6 months a year living in.
Hands down the best Satellite DVR
Pros: Fast, 16 channel recording at once plus 2 OTA recordings if you have the adapter for 18 channels. Built in software is good, includes a trial to filter language if you have kids. Was easy to install and activate. Did a manual firmware update with no problems.
Cons: Having some trouble with Dish Anywhere. But I'm sure the resolution will come.
Summary: I go straight from my 1000.2 WA dish into back of Hopper 3. That's it.
