Half the price of a new PVR, 2 year warranty, same as a new one. You cant go wrong. This thing works perfectly and it was delivered 3 days after ordering. I might just buy a second one.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

When I saw these were available for sale I was extatic. We had rented a Netbox and I hated it. Returned the Netbox and have been using this digital box with pleasure. Now we need you to bring PVR extenders!!

How can you go wrong with this?
By John the Bee
from Woodstock, ON
I had just got a new Samsung 50" Smart TV and wanted something better than my old 8300SD to enjoy it. Having read all kinds of horror stories from people trying to live with the teething problems of the new NextBox 3.0, I thought it safer to get this discontinued model. How can you go wrong with a 2-year warranty? My old 8300SD was a promo refurbished freebee from Rogers with a 1-year warranty and is still going strong after 4 years.I ordered the unit on-line on the weekend and picked it up at the post office on Wednesday. That's pretty quick service, given that the quoted delivery time is 7-14 days.Before ordering, I read a lot of the reviews here and most were positive. One that turned me off was where someone had received a really dirty box from a smokers' house. However, mine was clean as a whistle and apart from a couple of tiny scratches on the front panel, appeared brand new.At first I had some problems with the picture format because it looked like everything was stretched and I couldn't get a true aspect ratio on a 16:9 screen. But after Googling I found there was a setup wizard you could start by pressing the Guide and Info keys on the front at the same time with the box off and the TV on. I selected all the formats and that gave me more zoom options.The new NextBox 3.0 can record up to 8 shows at once while this one can only record two. Occasionally you'll run into a conflict, but with timeshifting, you can usually get around that.

How can you pay $20.00 less than original price for a NEW product and get one that either is old, definitely used, maybe wasn't working.....I would not think that this is a good deal....Even if the price that is $20.00 more is NOT for a new box, I still don't think that this is fair.....
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I purchased the Rogers PVR a few years ago and have had no issues. I decided to get another for my TV in the bedroom and as a backup if anything does go wrong with my original one. Great price and I have been watching for it's return.
Fast delivery. Although I ended up having to go get it from the post office as no one happened to be home when the postman came. It was fast to set-up and in good shape. The silver colour matches my older 2nd TV. Love that I now longer will miss the Y&R soap opera. Very happy with this purchase.

Like other reviewers...this is a great deal... bought it for a friend who's ecstatic about it ..has difficulty with most electronics but found this unit very easy to hook up and use. Highly recommended.

This is the second one I have purchased. This one was in great shape but it still required a couple of reboots before it would display the guide info properly. Now it works fine and I am happy. The two year warranty takes away any fear of buying used.
I would buy this product again and I did
from Oshawa Ontario
This pvr has surpassed our expectations. It is so simple to use and is backed with a two year warranty from Rogers.We use it daily to record one show while watching another or we record two different shows at the same time if we are not home just as simple as pressing a few buttons. We are so happy with this product that we purchased another one as a present for our daughter.This product is definitely worth the money.
I ordered this and am sorry I did not order another one. Only a few scratches on it and works perfectly and best part if anything happens to it I return it to a Rogers store and get another one. I have a 2 year warranty with it and if I purchased one outright from anywhere else including Rogers on a new model I would only have one year.Please get more stock because I have friends who would like to order,myself included. Once again Shopping Channel, you continue to amaze me. Fast delivery, great Warranty. Whats not to love!!!! from Markham
