If you're a Dish Network customer, there's really no reason not to upgrade to the Hopper with Sling, which combines the service's powerful whole-home DVR with Sling's watch-anywhere functions, so you can take your programs anywhere. Laptop Mag calls it the "ideal package for anyone who wants to watch their shows anytime and anyplace" and says the Hopper "is so good, you may want to ditch cable or DirecTV just to get it." PC Mag also likes the Hopper with Sling, and says it "packs a staggering array of features into a single box," and is "simply the best DVR available today."
An impressive, very full-featured DVR system that borders on having almost everything you could possibly want (of course, all the features have to work smoothly, but that's another story). However, upgrading the Hopper so soon may upset some users who bought the system last year.
