I didn't buy this unit from Amazon, I tried but it couldn't be shipped to me in Hawaii. The unit is a very simple, single tuner. HD output is excellent. My biggest surprise was when I hooked it up to my Sony HDTV using the HDMI connection and heard the sound quality. Comparing the sound to my old SD Dish Network 311 reciever would be like comparing a mono earbud to a 7.1 system, the difference was amazing.

It is possible to add an external hard drive to this unit and turn it into a single tuner DVR. I haven't done this yet but it's nice to know the option is available.

I bought this thinking it would save the $7 per month rental fee on DISH Network. Unfortunately, you still end up paying a $7 per month access fee. Why buy when you can get it for free from DISH? Crazy. I am planning to send it back and get one for free from DISH Network. Product does what it claims.

I bought the VIP 211k receiver and find that Dish Network charges the same $7 monthly fee whether you own or rent the receiver from them. So, in fact, it costs way more to own a receiver. Seems strange since I had hoped to save the monthly fee by owning. The receiver is fine - easy to setup (you need to call Dish Network to activate). Picture and sound are good.

This ViP 211k is very nice. It has some improvemnts to basic features such as the remote sensor on it is very wide and it lights up saying HDTV but that's not all the main improvment is how it locks in on HDTV signals quickly without hesitation unlike the old ViP 211. Not to mention that it's more compact and might have more memory in it. Basically it's a very nice reciever from Dish Network. "The Leader in Satellite and HDTV" :)

I bought this receiver 18 months ago and have had no problems with it. Easy set-up. Great picture and improved sound compared to the non-HD unit supplied by Dish Network when I subscribed years ago. I like the fact that one can add an external hard drive to make this a DVR receiver, but I haven't done that yet. Some have complained about still having to pay $7 a month to Dish, just as they would if they got a "free" unit from the network. I haven't looked at my bill, and I may also be paying the $7. But the reason I bought this myself was to avoid another 2 year contract with Dish Network. Long story, but didn't want to go that route.

We recently replaced the satellite antenna on our RV with a Winegard Minimax. This worked OK with our old Dish 311 receiver, but the 311 does not have HD capability. In the process I talked to a Winegard rep and learned that the VIP211k and 311 are the only Dish receivers that will work as the primary receiver with the Minimax antenna, apparently due to an antenna control signal from the receiver.
I was concerned about physical space for the receiver and was pleased to find that VIP211k is smaller than the 311, so it fit very well in the small compartment I had available. Power is low enough that I am able to run the receiver and TV on a 300W inverter. Installation was pretty straight forward following the Winegard instructions, then call Dish to turn on the 211k and turn off the 311.

I seen where some people feel this wasn't what they needed but I wanted to let others know that if your in a situation like mine you may be better off making this purchase. I have the package Dish Latino Dos and the receiver that come with it has no hd hookup so therefore I have to pay a fee of $65.00 to basically rent this new receiver from Dish Network plus either pay the $7.00 per month or the flat $99.00 fee or go online and fill out some info to get it every month for free which I won't do because you also have to agree to another 2yr. contract to get it for free and if you move they can cancel this deal instead of transferring the hd to your new home. Anyways, it just depends on whatever receiver you currently have. If you have one that you can just hookup the hd then don't purchase but if not then you may want to consider it especially if you look at the fact of you may terminate the Dish Network and then later decide you want it again so you already have the receiver you need. It just depends on your situation.
