I noticed that Circuit City sells the HR21-700 And Best Buy sell's the HR21-600. Which HD DVR is better?

Yes they are. The last three digits is just used to describe the manufacture that produced it.

That is a typo on best buy's website since there are no HR21-600's. The HR21 models are:

HR21-100 (made by Thomson/RCA)
HR21-200 (made by Samsung)
HR21-700 (made by Pace)

They are all the same piece of hardware and all are currently using the same software release (0x0230).

Are the review's on this HD DVR as bad as they say?I read many review's that are saying how awful this receiver is.The thing is I want an HD DVR receiver and this is the only one available to me that Directv has.

There are many factors that could cause problems with HD-DVR's (dish, lnb, cabling, coax connecters, power surges) that have nothing to do with the HD-DVR, but it will always get the blame. Also, most of the posts are about the negatives, not the positives. If you want to record mpeg-4 HD with Directv, there is basically only 1 HD-DVR to choose from. Just have to try one and see what happens.
