Summary: This is as advertised. It's a true AV drive which is meant for 24-hour continuous operation unlike most other drives which are meant only for being run 8 hours per day 5 days per week with sporadic usage in that time period.
Summary: Just a note: Something about the Western Digital AVJB/AAJB drives appear to be incompatible with some/all Series 1 TiVos. The affected TiVo models will never boot with these drives present, but will instead hang at the "Starting Up" screen. Should be fine in Series 2, but Series 1 users beware.
Summary: This drive is doing sterling service in my TiVo unit - I had to replace a failing drive and chose this model as the best size/price/specification compromise for the TiVo. No problems so far (6 months in), so it gets my vote for the moment!
Summary: My DirecTV Tivo had started to reboot alot. I replaced the old 80 GB hard drive with one of these 250 GB A/V drives. I cloned the old drive with Winmfs software I got free off the internet and now it works great. I have a lot more record time and a stable Tivo again.
Summary: Got this drive to replace the failing drive in my 8 year old TiVo Series 2 (which is now on it's 3rd hard drive). Because the TiVo still uses IDE (also known as PATA) hard drives, which haven't been common in desktop PCs in more than 5 years the variety of A/V (audio/visual) drives has decreased the...
Summary: Purchased as a replacement for a failed hard drive made by another "less reliable" brand. Replaced the failed hard drive this Western Digital and never looked back. Fast, cheap, and reliable - a great combination.
Summary: This is a very quiet A/V drive I used in a series 2 TiVo upgrade. It was the highest capacity parallel interface A/V optimized drive I could locate. My only concern is that it seemed to get a bit hot when I copied all my data over to it. I did not measure the current drain; the specs.

Summary: I upgrade SA8300HDC DVR to from Western Digital 160GB to WD 500GB PATA drive and it's working 100%. The internal upgrade allows for 60hrs HD programing and 300hrs SD programing. The speed and quiet operation is better than expected. This drive was designed for internal DVR and video recording units.
Summary: Nachdem die HDD in meinem Festplattenreceiver kaputt war und meine vorhande Ersatzplattte sehr laut und daher eine Nutzung im Schlafzimmer kaum möglich war, habe ich - aufgrund der Beschreibung und Rezensionen - diese Platte gekauft. Eingebaut, gestartet und ... man hört nichts.
