    Subject says it all. I've caved and am ready to buy... not paying tax or shipping is attractive... any downsides to buying from weaknees?

    Thinking the 1TB plus, will upgrade hdd myself at a later date.

    (is it pronounced weenies?)

    thanks all

    None. Very reputable.

    If they are in stock or shipping soon there is no reason not to buy from them. They are very reputable and read these forums.

    I *think* you can only get a discount on your Lifetime Service (if you are even eligible for that $100 discount) if you order directly from TiVo. Other than that, Weaknees is awesome and has been around forever, I've replaced a couple of HDs from them in the past.

    Not true. I have a series 2 and Premiere XL with lifetime service, and got $100 off for lifetime on my Pro bought from Weakness.

    OK thanks all, fears have been allayed, order placed, forgot to mention the other perk of $25 off with ROAMIOPLUS code. Now to wait...

    Weaknees does charge 15% restocking fee vs none from Tivo direct. That is the only drawback that I see but they are reputable.

    If you change your mind but if the TiVo was defective you would get a replacement, even from TiVo itself I think.
