Summary: I have a Sudden link Tivo great little box. came with 4 turners and a big 500gd hard drive ! I was always filling it up then I found this in the store for $60.00 Now I have 1.5tb and that is right hard to feel up. If you like to record hd shows then the space fills up face.
Great for expanding an old TIVO, but failed in 4 years

Summary: I was very happy with this right up until a month ago. The TIVO started rebooting randomly. I expected that the hard drive was failing after 5 years. When I ran the diagnostics, it turned out that this external drive was the failure point. It was newer than the internal TIVO drive.
Summary: By the time this is posted, this may be out of date. It is important to check what kind of eSATA expansion HDD is needed with your particular HDR. That said if this model is compatible, it works well. Ours has been chugging along for years now without a hitch.
Summary: There have been some reviews questioning how long this unit would last, and the quality it would produce after time. I have had mine for YEARS and have never unplugged it. The reproduction quality is (and has always been) flawless, it has never failed and does not make a sound.
Summary: I have 2 of these units and after a short period of time they both have failed. Unfortunately they were outside of warranty but you would think they would last a lot longer.

Summary: Bought this to expand recording time on a TiVo. Product works great and gives us a lot more storage space. Once connected to the TiVo shows recorded can only be seen on that TV. Unit can't be moved to another TV to watch shows recorded on the expander.
Summary: I bought this to expand the amount of shows we could save on the TiVo. Particularly HD. This it does with no problem. We have never come close to filling it up. The cable connection is a bit loose. If it disconnects from the TiVo, I have to reseat the connection and reboot the whole system.
