Just my two cents, but I would opt to save $50 to $100 and go for the 460 over the 660. The 660 is very appealing because of the larger hard drive and the ethernet port, but in actual practice the drive ain't THAT much of a big deal and the ethernet is a problematic one-off feature that could severely affect repairability later because of parts issues. If you expect to use a 660 for two years and then discard it, fine, but if your goal is to keep your recorder alive for years the more-common models are a better risk.

I'd second the sentiment. There are two types of HDD/DVD owner:
  • People like myself who keep their hard drive pretty clean. On my 160GB recorders it's very unusual for me to have more than about 1/3 of the disk full at any point in time.
  • People like my wife, who go for broke and are constantly struggling to free stuff from their drive. It's just as big of a problem for my wife with her 160GB Pioneer as it is with her 80GB Pioneer, and I have no doubt that she'd struggle just as much with a 250GB machine. The difference is that if the 80GB machine dies she's lost a lot less stuff than if a 250GB machine dies...
