    I've got an almost new Premiere for sale. The internal drive has been upgraded to 2TB (WD20EVDS) and it has lifetime service on it. Original box is included along with remote, all cables, and manuals.

    Looking for $550 plus shipping.

    This one's sold. Thanks Counsel!

    I'll have another identical unit for sale as soon as I get the Elite (hopefully next week). PM me if anyone has any interest.

    The Elite is on it's way from Weaknees, so I definitely have another Premiere for sale. Same specs as the one mentioned in the OP. Upgraded to 2TB drive with Lifetime Service for $550.

    Just wanted to give this thread a bump now that my second Premiere is all boxed up and ready to sell. The internal drive has been upgraded to 2TB (WD20EVDS) and it has lifetime service on it. Original box is included along with remote, all cables, and manuals.

    I'll do $550 shipped if you're in the lower 48 states.

    not sure the value there? I can get a brand new one from Tivo with lifetime service for $500. I have a lifetime on an old unit and they give a $100 rebate for that.

    You can get a brand new one with lifetime service that's upgraded to 2TB for $500?

    without the upgrade. so that upgrade is worth paying $50 more on a used machine?

    Yes, I think that $50 for that upgrade is fair. You obviously don't, so I'm not sure why you're commenting. If you have no interest, then don't buy it. Are you saying that you can upgrade a Premiere to 2TB for less than $50?

    I'm saying you have a used machine so I'm surprised at the price you're charging. If I buy a car new, drive it for a few years, but upgrade it, do you think it would be worth more than a new car without the upgrades? The reason I'm commenting was because I thought there might be some other reason you were charging more that I wasn't understanding.

    After all, the lifetime service is only as good as the unit lasts. If it's already used, the lifetime service isn't as valuable as it's that many years gone on the life of the machine.

    What does a car have to do with a TiVo? Weaknees sells new Premieres that have been upgraded to 2TB for $449 without lifetime service. If you qualify for MSD, it would still cost another $400 for lifetime.

    If you're not interested, don't buy it. But crapping on somebody's For Sale thread is just plain rude.

    this isn't your forum. this is an open forum. if you don't like it, don't post in a public forum. I had some questions and answered back that I didn't think it was a good deal. Deal with it. It's probably why you haven't sold it.

    first, a premiere has a 500gb hd in it stock. so this is a significant hd upgrade. i have seen 2tb preimieres on ebay for 350, without lifetime.

    second, i concur with the op.

    I think that the word 'sells' should be replaced with with 'has for sell'. As many things are "for sell" but never sell if the price is too high. As the discussion with the man that had hundreds of Tivo items for sell in Texas was saying that Amazon was selling non lifetimed single Tuner Series 2, where in fact I think we all agreed that it is unlikely that any single Tuner Series 2 have sold for any price listed on Amazon.

    But this Tivo listing indicates that the price that iceturkee offering is about the going rate as 24 bids indicate.

    I have no feeling on either side of this discussion but am only trying to present the facts.
