Summary: Wanted an audiovisual rated HDD for my new TIVO Roamio machine. Found a couple of nice YouTube videos that showed me how to swap the OEM 500 Mb drive out. Now we have gone from 75 hrs HD capability to 450 hrs. Has worked great for the 2 wks I have owned it.
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: 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.
Summary: The 500GB Tivo Roamio is the only Roamio that supports antenna TV, but the 500GB capacity gets eaten up quickly if you like to keep recordings for any length of time. We like to keep episodes of Sesame Street or other children's programs available all the time for our son.
Summary: Just to let others know - this is a GREEN drive. Great price for 3TB, but the read speed is not what I expected. Using Linux to write zeros to the entire raw device took ~7.5 hours (~135MB/sec according to dd, ~120MB/sec real-world according to iostat) with a low of ~77MB/sec(iostat) nearing the end...
Great Computer Hard drive - Not just for DVR's and Video security systems

Summary: Using these as hard drives on Windows 8.1. Great drive for heavy, constant use such as a media server or backup drive that may be accessed many times per day. It is silent, would likely need a stethoscope to know it's running.
Summary: Perfect upgrade drive for my Roamio Plus. Turn a few screws (actually hex) and power it up. The Roamio formats the drive and loads the files needed for a quick and easy internal drive upgrade! Wish Amazon sold the 4GB version of this drive that Weaknees is offering!
