"Better interface but sluggish and buggy"2.5 starson by connersherline
Pros: I like the new interface, the ability to see what else is available on Netflix, Blockbuster, etc. I like how live TV is seen from the Now Playing menu. The ease of use and regular TiVo charm are nice.
Cons: Powering up? I thought we lived in a world where things could easily turn on within second. This box takes literally 15 mins to power up and in order to reset it when it is frozen you have to take the power cord out.
Summary: End of the day I really enjoy having this DVR in my dorm room, it does what it needs to but can be buggy. It is sluggish and feels like it is modern software on a very dated hardware system. They should have quicker processors and more RAM on board to make it more seamless. I like TiVo because it is relatively simple to use, but I hate that when I need to reset it that it takes 20 minutes to power up, more so, I hate that when it resets, much of my information, TV shows, and ToDo List completely VANISH! I am sure that with a couple of software releases the product will reach a 3 - 3 1/2 star rating, but until then I am giving this a 50%, it's OK, not blown away and not completely disappointed. The price makes it more worth it, $85 isn't bad.
