The truth is they will all work about the same. If you are unhappy with 1 dome you will likely be unhappy with the other. Bigger is simply better.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

We have been up near the Canada border, Birch Bay, wide open sky.
Satellite 119 kept dropping and we had to reset many times each day. Sometimes there was no sound either.
We moved about 100 miles south, all things worked better but still problems.
I opened up the dish antenna and discovered that the motor for the rotation was loose. I was able to tighten it up. After synchronization of the gears it all appears to be operating correctly. I’ll try it out tomorrow to see if I solved our issues.
I purchased this used and it has never been as reliable as our old one was.
We made a big mistake after being with dish many years and switched to direct. After 6 months of problems and never being able to stream as promised we went back to dish. But during that 6 months we sold our dish system. But now we are back with dish and happy to be here.
