    How bad is the Hopper

    Thought about upgrading to a Hopper then saw 22 bad Amazon Reviews versus 6 Good. Is the machine really that bad? Should I stand pat?

    I think the better reviews are posted on forums like this one. The Hopper blows away any box out there, in my opinion. Sure it has a few bugs and they are being worked on but overall this box is pretty awesome. The Hopper w sling is the way to go.

    The Hopper IMO is the best DVR out there. Amazon has become infected with a Ton of trolls where now you can't get much of an honest feedback on many items,this being one of them. As lucky86 mentioned, go with the Hopper with Sling.

    Just read the problems in the Hopper Zone and make up your own mind.

    I have to check out these "bad" reviews on amazon, have people had some issues, yes they have. As others have mentioned Hopper is best DVR out there! If you are new to the hopper read Scott's reviews

    The reviews on Amazon consist mainly of minor issues, user error and trolling. I don't know what you have now but the Hopper and Hopper with sling is better.

    Read the forums here but keep in mind that here you are dealing with "super" users not average Joe's. Any feature or flaw in the Hopper is dissected to the nth degree but you will learn to use it and appreciate it to it's fullest.

    That's terrible. I'm sorry.
