I really like the larger HDD in the Series3 but with Tivo2Go, that might not be such a big factor. I don't archive much but I do tend to record things and never get around to watching them until 6 months later.
When will you need a new one? Hmmm - unless you have a board-level hardware failure, probably not for a long time.
- It's been suggested that there's a workaround in progress for when SDV becomes a reality, so that's not too big a concern.
- You can replace the internal hard drive fairly easily, so you have an upgrade path and don't have to worry about hard drive failure.
- Maybe when then 'next-big resolution' comes along? Can't see that happening for a while, and you don't really have to live on the bleeding edge
Buy the add-on extended warranty, or buy it from somewhere that offers an 'unconditional satisfaction' guarantee with all their items
and you should be set for many years
