"Why spend the money?"2.0 starson by johnpmorton
Pros: Looks cool in cabinet, great picture, Tivo software is pretty good.
Cons: Costs too much for what you get.
Summary: My main gripe is that I just don't see the advantage to buying this versus using the free Comcast box - By free I mean no initial fee. Plus, I bought this thing and it went bad on DAY 91, I was told that I would have to pay a $45 fee to get the box replaced, as you might imagine I was a little dismayed. I mean, I paid $300 for it, then was paying a monthly fee, plus renting the cable cards from Comcast. So I packed it up and returned it to Costco (they have a very liberal return policy) and I got the new Comcast HD DVR - same HD, plus I get on demand and if it goes bad I swap it at my local Comcast office.
