Quick Poll: Lease or Own 622

As long as Dish Network is available where ever you get transfered, you should be able to just inform Dish of the new location and take the leased receiver with you. Dish even offers a Dish Mover service to install a new dish at your new location.
Some people have purchased a second 622 because they could not get Dish to lease them two units so they wind up with a mix. However I know some people were successful in leasing two 622s from Dish.

I recently purchased a replacement DVR, but if I had it to do over again I'd probably lease. The limited life of units and technical changes from older models to new models makes leasing a better deal for me than it used to.
thanks alot...i was leaning that way anyhow!

I currently have two leased 622's and am much happier knowing that I don't have major amounts of money invested in these units. With that said, these units are not nearly as problematic, but if a new model came out, i wouldn't even entertain the thought of putting down $500 or more for it. Even with the upfront payments and monthly fee, you should not eclipse the purchase price.
Not to mention, these receivers become virtually useless after dish changes technology, so its not like they will work for ever if you own.

Lease = no equipment costs
Buy = ~$400
I guess if you have multiple receivers, then buying eliminates the $6/mth lease fee. It'd take quite a few months to make up the $400 upfront cost through a $6 a month savings, though.
Personally, I see the 622 as nothing more than a device I need to get Dish programming. It has no value without the programming. If Dish is willing to lease me the device for free, I'm going to have a hard time justifying paying to own it.

1st account for my family - 2 622 dvrs.
2nd account for my parents- 1 622 dvr.
3rd account for my aunt - 1 501 dvr.
Don't like leasing anything as it keeps you dancing to their set of rules and requirements like you have to take the hd pack for 20.00 if you lease. I don't have to pay for the hd pack on my parents account , since they don't care about it.
More options with owning than leasing. I could even sell it on e-bay if I wanted to or trade them in for a newer receivers at Dishdepot.com for trade in value.

I keep going back and forth....need help (I know the cost issues). I also might be getting transfered by employer. Is relocation of leased unit an issue?
Prior to upgrading to HD, we owned all of our DISH receivers and have for the almost 9 years we have been with DISH. But when DISH was willing to lease us 2 622s to keep us from jumping to Directv, we took them up on the offer. It's minimal cost upfront and seemed the best choice for us, at least.

i would prefer to own...but i just didnt feel like paying $500 for the 622 and then another $95 to the dish setup for hd .. i was happy with the 500s......and i truly hate paying lease fees......usually if there is a problem with your receiver, you should know within the 1st year......i only had to replace my 510 once.....& it was smooth sailing
