Works great

  • Summary: Works great. Expanded my DVR several fold. Now have a newer cable box and don't need anymore. Should I give it away on Craigslist? I guess so.

Great product.

Brooklyn's Best, Amazon
3 May 2014
  • Summary: A cable tech suggested an expander for our DVR to gain more recording hours. We were using a Scientific Atlanta DVR provided by the cable company and the expander worked great. We now have a Cisco DVR with a larger hard drive and no longer use the expander.

Works with TiVo -and- FiOS!

Jerry Glonek, Amazon
22 July 2011
  • Summary: Love this hard drive! It expanded the storage capacity on my TiVo HD a lot. And now that I have a FiOS DVR with the updated programming guide (version 1.9), it can use external drives as well and I was able to hook this up without any issue!

Extremely poor reliability

S. Barrett, Amazon
8 July 2011
  • Summary: I went through two of these is about as many years because they keep dying. This seems to be a known issue with them based on searches through google. However TiVo still hasn't come out with another option for us.

3 Years. No Product Problems with my TiVo HD

stlouisbrad "stlouisbrad", Amazon
15 May 2011
  • Summary: This is a special drive. The eSata connection cable may not be included. The eSata connection is the only cable fast enough to support streaming video for TiVo, DirecTV, etc. The cable can easily become disconnected if you aren't very careful to not put stress on the connections.

cheap way to expand the storage of HD shows

Sincerely Yours, Amazon
2 April 2010
  • Summary: So easy to install and just an easy synch with the Tivo: now we have so much more storage for all the new programs that are now available on HD. Dont worry if you see your tivo showing exclamation mark against your saved programs, it is nothing and will be saved for much longer!

Great addition to Tivo HD

MGB "ILoveTech", Amazon
6 February 2010
  • Summary: I recently purchased this hard disk to expand the storage on my Tivo. It work just as advertised. There is a larger unit avail now, but for the life of me I don't why anyone would need to store a TB of TV programs they want to watch. 500GB was plenty for me.

Limited lifespan indeed!

Phasedin, Amazon
24 January 2010
  • Summary: Another reviewer, Early Adopter,on Nov 2008 used just about the same headline as I have above to claim his frustration with a until that died within 18 months. I agree totally. for a couple of weeks my Tivo unit has been freezing and restarting multiple times when playing back programs.

DOES NOT WORK with Scientific Atlanta 8300HD DVR

J. Kim "HonestReviews", Amazon
15 January 2010
  • Summary: I think others had the same problem as I did. I have a Scientific Atlanta 8300 HD DVR (Time Warner Cable) and although installation was easy and my SA 8300 can read the extra memory...the shows that are recorded on my Western Digital external drive don't play back normally.
