I have two Premiere units. Got em for $50 each in Dec. -- (Paid $26.25 sales tax on each unit - but that's another story) ... I've paid for Lifetime on each box. $900 bucks total. I still have time to take a warranty on the units. But is it worth it? I've upgraded to 2TB drives -- (still have the orig drives as they were after activation) -- but I notice that TIVO can merely give me my money back. In other words, $50 each. They don't have to repair them or send me replacements. I realize, generally, they try to help you preserve your Lifetime service by sending a replacement unit. But they don't have to .. that's in the contract. I'm assuming the only thing that could go wrong that I may not be able to replace (and keep my Lifetime service) is the Motherboard .. I'd be gambling on the mother board -- otherwise, it's no problem for me to replace the Hard drive or the power supply. Done those kinds of things before. I'm wondering about the wisdom of taking the warranty. I'm not even sure how much it costs ($29.95?) and how long a period it covers. Any thoughts out there?
