"The Best TiVo Yet!"on by TMSpack
Pros HD, Season Passes, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, Pandora
Cons None - I Love it!
Summary Once again, TiVo shows us why it's worth spending a little extra for the best! I love being able to enter all my favorite shows as Season Passes. Then I can watch whenever I want, and I never miss a thing. Plus, it has my Netflix instant watching, Amazon Video on Demand, and YouTube, too! Oh, and when I'm not watching, I can listen to Pandora! Everything you could ever want in a set top box.
Pros TiVo won the race to be the best set-top box over a decade ago. Others are just catching on, but will still fall short of what my Tivo can do.
Cons I would like to see more DLNA support, and a bugfix for favorites on Youtube, Netflix could be more interactive, like on the Xbox360.
Summary TiVo search is the first, and still a powerful search engine to find the shows, and movies you want to see. All the TV "apps" other boxes will have are here, or will be available soon. This is the standard of DVR's. This is the box Hollywood/TV Professionals use in their homes. It was through their reviews I bought. I had never seen any TiVo ads.
Pros I've had a Series 2, Tivo HD and now the Premiere and have had wonderful results from all of them. Tried Comcast's DVR on one TV and got rid of it and bought the 2nd Tivo because there was no comparison to a Tivo unit.
Cons I have nothing negative to say about Premiere. I haven't experienced any of the problems the other reviewers have had with their units.
Summary In the world of electronics, my TiVo is one thing I can't live without. It frees me to live my life and not miss a thing. Streaming movies and transferring programs to other TVs are all the buzz now. While with TiVo, I've been doing both those things for nearly 3 years now. It just keeps getting better and better. They are always ahead of the curve and I love it. From ordering pizza to watching YouTube, it's all there.
Pros Smart - it's actually pretty good at suggesting content you might enjoy, even with minimal involvement on your part. You can also ignore these suggestions completely if you choose. Far more to list here.
Cons The parental controls are not available with the new HD menu interface, and to enable them you must switch back to the standard definition menus and interface. An issue for me as we really enjoy the HD look and redesign on the premieres.
Summary We're new to TiVo - we used to have one of those rental boxes from a large Cable provider, and although it was a good effort, it rarely worked as intended and we hated it. TiVo's amazing special on their premiere boxes finally pushed us over the edge; we had been on the fence about buying one for awhile, and we just couldn't turn down the incredible price this time. So glad we took the plunge! No, it's not perfect, but it's pretty close and we're confident TiVo will continue to remain committed to delivering an amazing product. We love our premiere box, and think you will too!!
