When the first TIVO came out years ago, I was the first in line to get one. It was love at first sight.
Several DVR’s later, I decided to go back to the original and purchase a Series 3 TIVO.
The Series 3 costs $699 retail and there was no way I could or want to pay that much. So I checked out EBay and patiently waited… after bidding on about 5 auctions (only to have some jackass outbid me at the last couple seconds!) I finally nabbed one. I think I got a good deal: Brand New for $375 (including shipping).
After the initial setup and living with it for a week, here are my thoughts.
