Tivo Romio

john, Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • 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.

Beware Return Policy & shipping charges

Robert M., Newegg
11 January 2014
  • Pros: none
  • Cons: Can't rate HD - it arrived DOA and with the below policy I have no option but to pay the $30 Shipping fee to get a replacement. Not impressed. This will be the last time I do business with Newegg.ca there are other firms with much better replacement options if your item arrives broken.

Doesn't Need Alignment !

R M., Newegg
12 October 2013
  • Summary: You can check if your hard drive or SSD is correctly aligned. Click on Start and type Msinfo32.exe and hit Enter key. (In XP click on Start / Run then type Msinfo32.exe ) A window opens. On the left side of window click on Components / Storage / Discs. On the right side of window scroll down and find "Partition Starting Offset" value. Use your calculator to divide that big number by 4096.
  • Pros: All new drives are correctly aligned for immediate use with modern Windows and Mac systems.
  • Cons: Not really a con but older operating systems such as XP or Mac pre-OSX can be adjusted / aligned if necessary to achieve max. performance (see below).

Update

Ron S., Newegg
20 September 2013
  • Pros: Update: On a hunch, I went back to the WD site and told it I was using WinXP (not necessarily a lie, I have three computers that run XP and I could conceivably use this drive on one of them), and lo and behold, it let me have the "restricted" program. Still not thrilled with all the sturm und drang they run up to prevent customers from just downloading the blasted thing.
  • Cons: .

I am not pleased

Ron S., Newegg
19 September 2013
  • Pros: Good price, high capacity, fast delivery, nicely packaged, NOT MADE IN CHINA ("Product of Thailand")
  • Cons: Drive label provided URLs for support/downloading of advanced format tools. When I went there, it told me I needed to create an account and register my drive. This was a nontrivial PITA, my time means something to me.
