Toshiba DVD recorder with TiVo at Woot!

Don't blink, or you'll miss it!, which sells one item each day until they run out, is selling the Toshiba DVD Recorder with 120 GB Series2 TiVo today. You can buy one, two, or three... they're $269.99 each, with $5 shipping per order. This model even includes free TiVo Basic service, and there's a $150 rebate if you wish to sign up for TiVo Plus service.

This is still available right now, but might not last all day. If they don't sell out, it'll be there until midnight CDT.

This is similar to the TiVo I have at home, though it starts with a bigger hard drive than I had at first. On a 120 GB hard drive, you can in theory record up to about 120 hours of "basic" quality shows, or probably 30-40 hours in "best" quality. Definitely adequate for the average user! You can then burn your shows onto blank DVD media whenever you wish.

Very few models still offer free TiVo Basic service. It leaves out some TiVo features, but is a good way to get started if you're not sure you're interested in paying the monthly fee for the service.
