Summary: We got our Series 3 in February of 2007. It has given us over 3 years of flawless service. I won't go into how superior it is to other DVRs; that has been covered. I will just say that Comcast issued us our cable cards with no trouble (!) and this box has delivered trouble-free service ever since.
Summary: From the reviews I have read, TiVo Series 3 HD is the best TV experience. So far, I agree. But be prepared to open your wallet. TiVo box, TiVo subscription, etc. My alternative was Comcast DVR, which most reviewers have panned, so I ruled it out early on. I have never personally tried Comcast DVR.
Summary: After our local cable company "upgraded" the firmware on the DVR we were renting from them, it became obvious that it was time to look at alternatives. After reading many reviews, I decided to get the Series3. It is an excellent DVR.
Summary: I've owned a TiVo for over 8 and a half years and can no longer live without one. It's what I've wanted all my TV-watching life. I recently bought an HD TV and needed to upgrade to an HD TiVo in order to take advantage of the new HD resolution.
Summary: Like most other people, I was forced to go to my cable company's dvr when I switched to HD (in this case it was Cox Cable's Scientific Atlanta box (blech)). With the FCC's July deadline, Cox was finally forced to issue cable cards for 3rd party DVRs -- allowing me to go back to Tivo -- and not a...
Summary: We had an original Tivo that gave up the ghost after 5 years, requiring us to go with the DirecTV DVR. The interface for that device lacked the ease of use we had associated with Tivo, so we decided to go back.
Summary: Just purchased the TIVO series 3 and it is everything I hoped it would be. Razor sharp picture and superior audio and all for a great low price. I couldn't pass up the current [...] rebate offer.
Summary: What can I say? The TiVo-3 is so much better than our Cox Communications Motorola HD DVR (SB5120) that we hurried over to buy another one only 8-days after converting our first DVR to TiVo-3; just to be rid of the aggravation of the other Motorola SB5120.
Summary: It really will you know. No really, I didn't believe it at first either. 3 years ago, I acquired a series two, single tuner Tivo, with lifetime membership from a workmate for $50. He had gone HD and couldn't use it anymore, and being the kind of over paid tech geek he was, he just gave it up.
Summary: I've owned a TiVo recorder since its inception in 1999. It still works and it still does what it's supposed to do: record TV programs! The Series3 is my second TiVo unit, and this one adds the ability to record in high definition, both from digital cable and from an antenna.
