Working great in my TiVo Roamio

Summary: Installed in my new TiVo Roamio as soon as I got the Roamio and drive. Very easy with the help of a YouTube video but you'll need/want a T9 and T10 screwdriver. Coming from the TiVoHD, you do not have to do any software setup of the drive - just install it in the Roamio and the Roamio sets it up. I think that's pretty great. So far the drive itself works great and is very quiet... and can hold hundreds of hours of HD programming. The 3 year warranty is also nice.
Summary: Having just got a HDlnks 720 and wanting to have all my media on 1 huge drive to access, I ordered one of the 3 TB drives. WD has always done right by me and the 2 times I've had drives go out under warranty, replacements were fast and taken care of. Plugged this into a free drive slot in my PC, did a quick format and then proceeded to copy 1.5TB of movies, 80 GB of music and 217 GB of pics in less than 40 minutes.
Summary: They sent me a dud. Good news is that WD's RMA process is second to none, but they sent me a dud! All the time wasted trying to debug my systems only to find out it was my new WD hard-drive was agony. The replacement works fine though. So, am disappointed with WD's QC--it shouldn't have left the factory.
Summary: I purchased this HDD for my new TIVO Roamio with 6 recording channels. I have replaced the existing one with this one and worked like a charm without any special settings. TIVO did everything, formatted the drive, installed the OS automatically and ran the setup. I have it for 2 months now and is working well.
Summary: Upgraded TiVo Romio. Nothing to it. Just a few screws and a bracket. Took the original out, dropped this one in, waited for the TiVo to restart and that was all. Really couldn't have been any easier.
