Summary: I think that this drive is a very good value, with a lifespan of 114 years and two terabytes of drive space... This harddrive should outlive me... I installed it to my pc. It does run very quiet as stated...
Pros: Cost - for $75 you get an AV rated drive that is perfect for installing in a DVR or home security recorder. Capacity - 2TB is a nice bump from the ~160GB class drives installed on some Tivos. Compatibility - Works perfect as an upgrade to my two Tivos (Series 3 HD and a Premiere/4).
Cons: 90 Day Warranty. Test the drives as soon as you get them. The warranty is only 90 days. In my experience, drives will fail very early on or tend to last for the duration of the warranty. Save yourself some bucks by buying the factory-refurbished drive. The sticker on the drive from the manufacturer shows it is a refurbished drive from Western Digital.
