Summary: I decided to purchase my TiVo to move towards my goal of reducing my cable bill and get rid if an awful DVR. The DVR we had with cable didn't work well and kept making recording errors. I'm happy to say that we have encountered zero errors with the TiVo! I love it!
Summary: Moved to a Condo with HOA and didn't want to hassle with them about Sat dish. Had the first Directv Tivo DVR in the past, so I was familiar with the interface. Needed large storage so I picked the Premire XL and XL4. Netflix was a must. Xfinity on demand and great live tv makes it a no brainer.
Summary: I have been a long-time customer of Tivo, and their service used to be very good. I ordered a new box last Christmas, and it didn’t even last a year. They sent me another box and it was dead on arrival.
The almost perfect interface for serious television watchers

Summary: We've had Tivo in our lives for at least ten years, having gone through at least five models. It is always a hard swallow to upgrade the Tivo machine because you can't transfer the lifetime service agreement from one machine to another.
Sour Grapes-purchased XL4 only 3 weeks ago and now Roamio available

Summary: Sour Grapes-purchased XL4 only 3 weeks ago and now Roamio available. Old Series 3 HD failed after 5+ years so bought XL4 HD. Less than 1 month later Tivo launches new Roamio product line with the features I was truly waiting for. Wish I had known this was coming..........aaarrggghhh!
Summary: After over a decade of loving my TiVO Series 2, and a several year period of trying to love WMC but not succeeding, I decided it was time to take the plunge and try a TiVO Premiere. Setup was very easy, including Comcast CableCard activation/pairing (which I had heard horror stories about).
Buggy, unreliable, extremely awful support from Tivo

Summary: OK, I have multiple Tivos. 2 XL4+ units, 2 minis, and a Premiere. I still "own" an HD and have had a number of other Tivos as well. Frankly, if you disregard the aspects of speed, reliability and support, the Tivo experience is great.
I've had one from the beginning, I love time-shifting

Summary: I had been waiting for TIVO since before it came out. I have had about 5 of them over the years and for different addresses, and use them many times daily. It's by far the best DVR device, most user friendly and has the most capacity.
