Great receiver and easy to install.
- Live Free or Die, NH -
Great receiver and easy to install. Thanks for the fast shipping.
Excellent Receiver! It was a Refurb but if it wasn';t on the sticker, I wouldn';t have known.
- Colorado Springs, CO -
Came packaged like new, looked like new and worked perfect out of the box. Everything was a snap to install and color coded cables made it even easier to get both Tv';s going as soon as they powered up. Easy walk through tv setup menus. A d raisin pie for Dish network because I no longer have to have a contract with them. If you don';t own your own box, your paying too much for cable!
Ok by me
- Rockford, rd Illin -
It was exactly as advertised. Never been opened or used.
