i am really up set at this hd upgrade I'm going through, so i added up what the equipment would coast me. using the amounts provided by one of the sponsor links above the vip211 the dish1000+ and the dpp44 switch and shipping to me comes to approx $675.00. Davide that by lets say a high lease fee of $10/mo i got 5.5 years to brake even. I'm shire by that time receivers will have changed to the point it wouldn't be worth a dime to sell if i owned it. and most upgrades from one leased receiver to another is min right??? it gets even more interesting with the vip622. now with the vip622 the dish1000+ with the dpp44 switch i get approx $880.00. Davide again by the high lease fee of $10/mo i get 7.3 years. even though lease fees are not that high i wanted to see the worse case scenario. being on there everything package gives you almost no dvr and lease fees. so then the time to brake even is so long we will be using rockets to get around town like the jetsons. just made me feel a slight bit better about leasing. so $49 or $199 isn't looking so bad. i still be live they need to come down on the VIP622 to a max of $125 so the average guy can get one. and could or should be $100. at that price i couldn't complain.
