Being able to record on two tvs and play back on two tvs is great. My wife and I can watch what we've recorded on two different tvs using just the one box. The ease of recording shows, pausing live tv is great

Two tuners and large recording capacity is nice. That drops freezes and skips are standard and not fixable sucks.

2 tuners, 100 hours record time

Skipping and freezing and drops are standard and DISH can't fix them
