Excellent choice for DVR/Tivo

Notmy Realname, Amazon
18 May 2011
  • Summary: Used this as a replacement drive for a DVR recorder. Drive is spacious (2TB) and very quiet. I've had no performance issues at all. (however you probably wouldn't want this as your main system drive - it's not designed for high performance).

Perfect upgrade

Eric Schoutens, Amazon
17 April 2011
  • Summary: ...for our WHS. Installed and formatted quickly. Doubled the storage space on our WHS which now acts as a media server to stream audio and video to several computers using Media Center. This drive is better suited to this than the EADS or EARS models.

Excellent drive for Win7 Media Center

8800 User, Amazon
19 March 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this drive to replace a dying Seagate within our living room media center (win7). The drive does indeed live up to it's word: it's dead quiet (yay), fast and cool running - so far it's working great. We use the drive to record/play HD tv and subsequently stream to other rooms of the house as well. It works flawlessly and for once we have a drive in the living room that I can't hear grinding when it's recording two shows and watching two others.

WD 2TB drives in D-link 323 DSN network storage/print server

Paul E. Hines "Paul Hines", Amazon
28 February 2011
  • Summary: Last summer I purchased a D-link 323 DSN network server through Amazon, just installing two older SATA drives I had from an old computer in it. With it being very useful as a backup storage for a Dell XP laptop, my Dell Win 7 notebook and my Systemax Win 7 desktop I installed two Western Digital 2 TB SATA 32 MB Cache into it. As a result it not only serves as a network backup but as a true server to hold shared resources for the three computers.

Excellent for DVR - Check Compatibility First

Axolotl, Amazon
25 January 2011
  • Summary: I bought this drive to replace the stock drive in our cable company DVR, as the stock drive wasn't large enough to record much HD. I'm very happy so far. This drive is silent! I can't hear it spinning or hear the heads moving at all. It may as well not be turned on. Not much to say other than that. It does exactly what it's supposed to. 2TB, cool, and silent. Excellent. UPDATE - I did run into a problem over time with poor video quality.

Pleased, and cautiously optimistic

Amazon Customer, Amazon
12 January 2011
  • Summary: I was looking for a reliable, fast, rugged hard drive to add to my system. I've gone through a lot of external Firewire drives, and sooner or later, a majority of them have failed. I understand hard drives don't last forever, but I've learned to stay away from my old favorite Maxtor (and Seagate). The click-death was too frequent and more than I could stand. The drives are attached to my main machine, an "old" Mac.

Nice silent HDD for DVR

D. Goolsby, Amazon
9 October 2010
  • Summary: I bought this to use with a Thermaltake eSATA dock connected to my DirecTV DVR, this combo has proven quieter than my previous 1TB "standard" WD green drive in an Vantec MX-1 enclosure.
