Summary: When I opened up this drive in the Disk Management Console in Windows 7 Pro, it showed two partitions 2.0TB something and a 700+GB partition. My formatting selection was limited to either formatting those partitions, or doing some GPT or something setup, which allowed me to go into the normal NTFS...
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: 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.
Summary: The drive was very easy to install into the Tivo Roamio after a trip to Home Depot to get a Torx screwdriver. Because the Tivo subscription costs $500 and is linked to the unit, this is a very efficient way to increase the unit's storage capacity.
Summary: Just another customer who purchased this disk through Amazon and am pleased it serves as a great high-capacity replacement for the Roamio hard drive. (Three months' flawless disk performance, so far). As others note: the only daunting part of the installation was opening up the Roamio case.
