TiVo Roamio

For years TiVo has quietly ranked among the best DVR options money can buy, and now, with the TiVo Roamio ($200-$600), it's just gotten a lot better. It's still the only set-top box that connects to your cable, offers the ability to record a ton of HD content, and houses all the video apps you love (Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, YouTube) — but now you can also watch all of your recorded content on any iOS device with the TiVo app. Additionally, it can play your music, photo, and video library, includes WiFi, can record up to six shows at once, and has the capacity to hold up to 450 hours of HD video. Not too shabby.
