A lucky? $99 HMO buyer

Wow, a $40 penalty for being an early adopter of HMO.
Not how to make friends and keep customers.

I would like to recommend this thread in the Coffee House

http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-v...425#post1307425

Or if you look hard enough, you should be able to find several threads where people were upset that a small group was getting a discount about a month ago. Now it's a larger group, but the fact is the same. Prices Drop.

For everyone that feels upset about purchasing HMO before the discount was offered, I would like to suggest looking up "buyers remorse" someplace. This happens on purchases all the time, and doesn't have to be caused by price, but often is. You'll be happier if you learn to appreciate the time you had something before the price changed instead of being upset now that it's cheaper.

I hate to admit the fact that I bought the third Rio 500 mp3 player from Best Buy in Springfield, Missouri...for $199. Now what is it worth? Twenty bucks?

It's the Early Adoptor Penalty and a fact of life.

First PC (a 286) about $1700

First VCR (with wired remote) about $1000

First blank VHS tapes $24 each (I split a case with my brother to get a good price break!)

First portable cd player (skipped like crazy) about $300

First TiVo (14 hour Series 1) $399 (and I waited til the price came down a little)

HMO $99

Hey, if you're going to buy things early on, expect to pay more. Consider HMO a cheap lesson, and learn to wait if it bothers you!
