Customer Reviews:
  • Great Picture, bad GUI, low on features
    I have to say, the Vip211 DOES provide an awesome picture. It is sharp, clear, & crisp. In this regard, this receiver does its job exceptionally well.
    But I have to say that the graphic user interface (GUI) design, although moderately attractive, is organized horribly, and most obviously as an afterthought. For instance, to look at the Caller ID history, to check and see who has called while you were out... MENU - SYSTEM SETUP - CALLER ID HISTORY. Now, why I ask are these many steps, and on the System Setup menu no less, necessary for a feature that potentially is accessed so often?? I also find the steps for programming in a show for future viewing to be cumbersome and unintuitive. Lastly, the two day guide... TWO DAYS... it is merely ridiculous. I really believe EchoStar could have done a much much better job at anticipating usability on this unit. I admit, I miss my DirecTV Hughes unit of years ago with so many one-touch features, and 9 days of guide....more info
  • THE BEST SO FAR
    THIS RECEIVER IS SLEEK AND VERY HANDSOME, THIS IS THE 5TH RECEIVER I HAVE OWNED AND TRUST ME THIS ONE TAKES THE CAKE. LETS START WITH THE VIDEO QUALITY, WHICH IS STRAIGHT HI-DEF 1080I, SWEET LIKE HONEY, HDMI CONNECT WHICH SPEAKS FOR ITSELF (AUDIO & VIDEO), GUI WHICH IS OUT OF THIS WORLD, A VERY CHEAP RECEIVER, A VERY COMPREHENSIVE REMOTE CONTROL. I LOVE THIS RECEIVER IT GREETS ME EVERYDAY AFTER WORK AND PUTS ME TO BED EVERY NIGHT, WHAT MORE CAN I SAY, THANK YOU ECHOSTAR, YOU HAVE OUTDONE YOURSELF WITH THIS ONE, ITS THE TECHNOLOGICAL MARVEL OF THE CENTURY....more info
