TiVo HD In Top 50 Rent-To-Own Consumer Electronics

This is a market segment I never really think about, since I’ve never done the rent-to-own thing, but I know it is a fairly large industry with the likes of Rent-A-Center. Large enough to have their own magazine, and RTO Magazine has listed their Top 50 RTO CE products.

“We asked the leading U.S. distributors of electronics to predict, based on early 2008 sales data, the products that will most impact the rental industry in 2008,” said Roy Griffaw, founder and president of RTO Online Inc. and publisher of RTO Magazine.
The list was compiled by RTO Magazine editors with the help of five leading rental-purchase industry suppliers: D & H Distributing, DSI Systems, New Age Electronics, ALMO and Nationwide Warehouse Direct/SED International.

A number of HDTVs made the list, as well as the TiVo HD. Picked up from Fox Business.

    Someone must really have no money and REALLY hate the cable or satellite DVRs to rent a TiVoHD instead of buying one…
