Re: Explorer 8300 HD DVR

Compared to rental, it's a steal.

Cable companies make a ton of money off of those $15/month boxes that are total crap.

Plenty of WOW customers get their boxes for free.

Free DVR's too?

Anyway, if you own the equipment, you're recordings aren't dependent on keeping the same provider or dvr.

Yep, that's a good point.

Besides the upfront price, the only other negative I see would be if your DVR were to die, you'd be on the hook for replacing it. When you lease through the cable company, they'd just swap it out.

If your equipment holds up and the Ceton co.
supports it properly. You definitely won't have a replacement the next day!
