Pros: What's to say? It's a 3tb hard drive for AV use. It works. It was easy to install, all the holes were in the right places, the drive fit in my Tivo Series 5 without any modification, it powered right up. I've had new drives with problems with any or all of the above.
Summary: Bought a TiVo Roamio that works with an antenna. I bought this drive after reading that the TiVo will automatically format drives of this size. I love that. I've been using this drive for 10 months and haven't had any problems.
Summary: Upgraded my TIVO Roamio Plus to 3gb plug and play. This was an easy drop in replacement for the OEM drive. If you're handy with screwdrivers you can do this. Do not use magnetic screwdriver bits (magnets and magnetic media such as hard drives should be kept separate). Works like a champ.
Worked great for replacing the drive in a Tivo Roamio

Summary: Worked great for replacing the drive in a Tivo Roamio, went from 75 hours of HD storage to 475 hours! (More TV than anyone should ever watch!) But great for football and baseball games. The upgrade is super simple if you have a torx driver, takes about 5 minutes. No hard drive prep needed.
Summary: I used this drive to upgrade the 1tb drive in my DirecTV Genie DVR. Genie runs a unix style file system so use a linux distro to copy files over. Oddly enough disk clone did not get recognized and Genie formatted the new drive, forcing me to copy files manually afterward.
Summary: Worked flawlessly in a HTPC since 5/2012 working as strictly the DVR hard drive with a cable card. Failed with bad sectors in 12/2014. Ended up purchasing a red drive now. Not impressed with this product. I thought it would've lasted longer.
