-- What to buy...40 hour, 60 hour, 80 hour or go used? (http://archive.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?threadid=79437)
mcmoore - that's an excellent deal! Make sure you get the original box on that thing so you can get the $50 rebate.
As far as the 80 hour versus the older model units: there are changes both good and bad. The PQ issues have been resolved and it really still remains to be seen whether they can fix them on the older Series2 units in my book. Although they haven't done it yet, maybe they can pull it off in software.
But the problem that was created in the 80 hour unit is its lack of support for a second hard drive. So the only option now is to swap the 80 out with a 120 or 160 - hardly a really cost-effective option over the older units which are both cheaper, and more cheaply upgradeable. So if you think you'll upgrade (granted 80 hours is a decent amount of space) then you should grab an older unit while they last.
Finally, there is some AT&T branding on that TiVo - not on the remote, but on the unit itself. I don't think it matters, but just to be clear . . . and AT&T may begin selling their 40 hour units with one bay at some point . . .
