Works !

Jennifer L., Newegg
1 August 2012
  • Pros: Gives me more space to store stuff on my Verizon Fios DVR. Plug and play, did have to restart the DVR to get it to save programs to the drive, even though it said it recognized the drive without a restart.
  • Cons: Kind of expensive.

Overpriced / prone to failure

Chris D., Newegg
21 August 2011
  • Summary: * Died right after the 30 day mark, no longer detectable by my TiVo. Powers up, but completely undetectable by either of my TiVos. Tried different cables as well, no luck. Just on the outside of NewEgg's RMA window as well. Nice, Western Digital.
  • Pros: Comes with an eSATA cable.
  • Cons: *Overpriced - This is substantially overpriced for a 1TB hard drive. The only reason I purchased this was to increase the storage on my Tivo Premiere. Unfortunately, this is the only officially supported hard drive to increase Tivo storage space, hence the high pricing.

Great Expander

Austin C., Newegg
26 April 2011
  • Pros: 1TB of space, Sleek look, easy installation. I purchased a Tivo Premier a few months ago and I was filling up my HD really quickly. Once my tivo got 75% full it started to slow down so I decided to purchase a expander HD. I searched the internet for the best price on the WD My Book 1tb I found some around $109-$114 price range but I had a promotional code for $20 off from Newegg so I decided to purchase the WD from them. It only took about 5 - 10 minutes to install an...
  • Cons: The customer service at Newegg isn't as good. I purchased the item on Friday morning hoping to get it shipped out by the end of that business day but on Moday I get an e-mail telling me that the item is backordered and my order has been canceled. So I contact Newegg and was told my order was canceled due to back ordered but the website stated that they had them in stock Friday and again on Monday. The customer Rep told me that they had them in stock and I should submi...

84% to 11% used capacity

Thomas R., Newegg
7 April 2011
  • Pros: First and foremost, if you are a Cablevision/Optimum customer (as am I), and you have a Scientific Atlanta 8300HD, you need to do exactly OPPOSITE of the recommended install. I read this on line and it turned out to be true.
  • Cons: None.

Best/Only Expansion for DTV HD-DVR

Karl T., Newegg
1 February 2011
  • Pros: As I have been a DirecTV customer before DVR's existed the main issue with all DVR's has been the storage issue - Their internal HD's are never big enough. This WD 1TB AV eSata DVR Expander is the answer to the problem and actually is the only one that works. Do not buy anything else. I have a HR20 & a HR21 HD-DVR and I have had -0- issues.
  • Cons: -0-
