The high initial cost of voom has kept me away, and I find I do watch enough cable channels to warrant keeping cable, I'd hate to lose a lot of the channels I watch regularly. But I really do not care for time warner in the least, their mediocre to poor hardware or their poor customer service.
The Pace 550 which I have is prone to overheating but otherwise provides an excellent image over a DVI connection
Mine is insanely prone to overheating, and nobody at t-w will acknowledge it and help out, and I haven't been able to get a replacement Pace box (for the excellent image quality DVI). I've actually gone to the offices several times and was offered a non-DVI, non-DVR, non-optical sound box.
I fabricate computers on a fairly regular basis, usually do one high end rig a month, and several workhorse boxes. My latest passion has been silent cooling, and without applying a liquid cooled system I don't think I can make my Pace box stable. I've used system fans, and right now I have the case off and a large fan (noisily) blowing directly over the system board, and it will /still/ reboot occasionally.
Of course, with no cooling modifications, it's effectively useless, as it won't stay on for more than ten minutes without rebooting.
And t-w seemingly can't replace it, can't understand the very fundamentals of the technology they make a hefty profit from.
And this is after I moved into the city after having three different country houses with nearby cable (400feet or so in each case) that t-w wouldn't extend so I could pay them $120/mo (rr+cable).
I really don't like t-w at all imo, but of course they aren't a monopoly, just my only option as a computer power user and HD fan. Way to treat your high end customers.
