Advertisements Maybe not in your situation. For me, I wanted a faster unit. The Edge does seem snappier. However, the main reason was due to my Bolt+ approaching EOL. I keep our equipment in an unventilated cabinet. Only way possible with the way our living room is designed. There is some air flow, but the TiVo's have traditionally ran hot. Because of this, we usually only get about 3-4 years of life out of them. My Bolt+ is about 3 years old. When our Roamio died, we were out of TV for a week awaiting a replacement. So since then, I replace them every 3 years before they die. The current Bolt is already showing signs of fatigue (random reboots increasing in frequency).
