$175 Series 3 Tivo: Deal or No Deal?
Would you rather wait for TiVo Premiere or take advantage of the numerous sales on Series 3 DVRs?
March 10, 2010 by Julie Jacobson

TiVo is serving up some might tasty new features on its forthcoming Series 4 Premiere DVRs.

So it’s no surprise that consumers and resellers alike will be pawning off their Series 3 products leading up to the April release of the newer models.

Today, Woot! is offering refurbished TiVo Series 3 TCD648250 250GB THX-certified DVRs for $170 plus the usual $5 for shipping.

Is that a good deal or not? The 320GB Premiere model has an MSRP of $300, and the street price will no doubt be lower after a month or so after the product’s release.

Currently, used (not refurbished) TCD648250 DVRs start at about $245 and new ones are going for $475 and up.

So what do you think. Is Woot’s offering a deal ... or no deal?
