PCMag.com has reviewed and rated the DISH Hopper and have given it 4.5/5 stars with an editor rating of “Excellent!” The only cons they delivered for the DISH Hopper were that it doesn’t stream Netflix of Hulu Plus, but with PrimeTime Anytime and Blockbuster @Home streaming available with the Hopper, most customers report they don’t need either of those extra bills anymore! PCMag.com said in it’s bottom line review of the Hopper that it is “the best whole-home DVR and cable/satellite tuner experience we’ve seen yet.”
Editors also lauded the Hopper’s size, which is small considering it houses such impressive performance and massive 2TV hard drive. They also advised that “setting up multiple series recordings was easy”, and said they were able to set up recordings of several shows in minutes. Overall, the excellent design, ease of use, and customer-oriented features (such as the Remote Locate button) were highlighted and commended.
