Try dishdepot.com if you want the 622 ,TAX FREE- if you don't live in Florida. Mark will allow trade ins toward the 622 as well which would bring down your purchase price. I have done business with him for 4 years and he has always paid for shipping and handeling -both ways if you do a trade in. He is great to work with. If you have any questions about a trade in you can email him on his website.

Wouldn't it be cheaper to lease one from dish?

Yes, however, if you are doing a self install, DISH will not lease one to you. So I'm looking to buy one and the hell with the lease.

I'm curious, what are the advantages to buying a receiver? It's my understanding that you still pay the $5 per additional receiver fee.

The advantages is if it is the only receiver there is no $5.00 additional receiver fee. Actaully it is $6.00 for the hd receivers and $5.00 for the sd ones. The other advantages are you are not held to any commitments with Dish or any hd pack requirements. You can get just hd locals and your ota tuner enabeled for only the $6.00 hd enabeling fee. I OWN all of my 622s , a total of 3 on two different accounts. On my account I have the hd pack and AEP w locals. On my 2nd account at my parents I have top 250 w locals both sd and hd and the hd enabeling fee. I can also trade them in for the newer receivers to dishdepot.com or I could sell them on E-Bay for the most I can get.

Mike covered most all I can think of beyond the "self install wanted", but I'd add that owned receivers can be activated and deactivated whenever you want without fee. You can keep a 510 in a guest room and only activate it for a week when someone is visiting and pay 1/4 of the $5 Addl Rec and $5.98 DVR fee. Or deactivate it while some snowbird is in FL for months.

Why does dishdepot say (No Lease Fee-No Contract) on most of the receivers?

Probably because you BUY Them instead of leasing directly through DISH. SInce you buy them there is NO commitment or contracts with DISH and you can leave at any time.
