"Why pay $800 now?!?"2.5 starson by dw333
Pros: Everything you've ever wanted in a DVR
Cons: It costs $800 freakin' dollars! (+$13/month)
Summary: Man did I want to buy this, but how can one justify the premium? As a LONG TIME tivo user, Tivo shareholder , and overall HDTV junkie I WANTED this product. But for 2 years I’ve been suffering through the Scientific Atlanta 8300HD’s horrible interface, lack of network options, etc. and have finally adapted to it. I’ve even trained my wife to use it. Now this comes out and somehow I have to think of the “yes it is about the same, honey, but here’s why we need to spend $800 so I can check fantasy scores/weather/movie times on Tivo” argument. Not going to happen. Now I’m going to have to wait several more years for the price to someday fall and continue to suffer through the 8300HD. DARN you TIVO!
