"High Def Recording and Usability"5.0 starson by Doob67
Pros: A great balance of features, usability, and high definition clarity supported by a really good deal. I had been a TiVo user in the past, but the improvements are fantastic. We got the slide out remote (separately) that works great with the box.
Cons: On a very rare occasion there will be a freeze up, but this can be recovered from. Given how infrequent you need to type in search criteria, the price for the slide out remote seems a bit high, but it's nice to have.
Summary: TiVo has done it again with their offer which provides the box and service with no up front fees. The usability of the interface is unsurpassed. It works great with my Comcast service and thru use of the MCard I no longer need a separate cable box. The high definition recording is flawless. Integration with amazon unboxed and Netflix is seamless. The recording capacity is more than enough for me. I use only about half of it and I still have a lot to watch! Great deal for an amazing product.
