    Looking for the best place to buy the new Tivo Roamio - Pro version

    a) Tivo.com
    b) Weaknees.com
    c) Amazon.com

    d) other suggestions?

    Should I get extended warranty? I will be purchasing lifetime and plan to keep it for life...

    Thanks.
    Anthony

    I would get it the cheapest place you can. There have been posts about high shipping costs with TiVo. The extended warranty is up to you. I normally do not buy them. The TiVo one is a one-time use so once you use it, it is gone even if there is time left.

    Thanks again.

    The shipping cost from TiVo, Amazon, Weaknees, and Bestbuy is the same. They all cost Zero for shipping. It's when you want faster shipping options than ground shipping, that there is a cost for shipping.

    Thank you for the clarification. I was going by what I read. Sadly it will be while before I am in the market for the roamio.

    That may be a blessing in disguise.

    Remember, the pioneers are the ones with the arrows in their backs.

    I know any enthusiasm I might have had for the idea of getting a Premiere was pretty well erased by reading the experiences of early adopters.
