Incredible value


For the price, this is an amazing unit. Now I can archive all the TiVo shows I've been saving. Super record quality on HQ mode. My only nit-pick complaint is that it's not very intuitive to use, but I'm sure that will easily be overcome with experience...

Had this product one week, and it works great


Seems to work just fine so far. The optional edit features are nice, and I've been using it with my TiVo successfully. Great value.
