Just like everyone else.....18 months and then it crapped out.

Jared L. Daniel, Amazon
17 November 2009
  • Summary: Worked great for 18 months. Then it died. I wish I had read these reviews before I purchased. It currently loads up like it will work....it also works for a couple of hours....then it crashes and you can't watch anything. - Lame. Don't buy this unless you only need if for 18 months or less.

Solid DVR expander

SoCal Thom, Amazon
16 November 2009
  • Summary: As a Southern California of Cox Cable's HD service, I have a Scientific Atlanta Explorer 8240HD DVR. And I like to record stuff. The problem with that is, of course, that the only way to save the stuff I record is to output it to a VCR.

An easy expansion to my DVR (unless you have Time Warner Cable)

J. Anderson, Amazon
23 September 2009
  • Summary: UPDATE 5/19/2010 - I have Time Warner Cable. They just changed their software (Navigator), and prior to the software change, I was perfectly happy (See "Previous review" which follows). This external disk does NOT work with Time Warner Cable anymore.

Space...the final frontier

D. White, Amazon
12 May 2009
  • Summary: I connected my DVR Expander to a SA8300HD (Scientific Atlanta HD-DVR from Time Warner) and had the same positive experience (so far) as ByTheShore did. Turn off and unplug DVR, connect and power up My DVR Expander, power up and turn on DVR, and a couple dialogs later I was up and running.

HD failed after 1 month

Howard G. "Howie G", Amazon
1 March 2009
  • Summary: I purchased an HD Tivo and DVR expander about 2 months ago. After about a month the Tivo started freezing and failing to record. This problem became more and more frequent, and after a few weeks the Tivo was unusable. I called Tivo tech support and they suggested I disconnect the expander.

Forget It!--5 stars for Amazon's RMA Service, zero for the unit

frankland "frankland", Amazon
23 February 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this unit from Amazon, and it was defective out of the box. The symptom is that the TIVO will not boot up with the drive attached (freezes indefinitely on the "Welcome...Powering Up" screen).

Good At First - Corrupted Later

David M. Patry "pvision", Amazon
4 February 2009
  • Summary: This drive worked great with my HD Tivo at first, but then my Tivo started recording only parts of shows. I went back and forth for months with Tivo and my cable provider and nobody could identify the problem.

Works Great, No Problems

Dedicated Shopper, Amazon
4 January 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this product last August and it installed on my Tivo HD without any problems. Immediately my storage was extended for HD recordings. My Tivo's Hard Drive had to be replaced and I purchased a replacement from Weakee's and installed it today.

Great product!

Aaron, Amazon
30 December 2008
  • Summary: Excellent product...easy to use, and easy to setup. I did not want to mess with upgrading my internal drive, so this was the best option for me. Also, with the recent price drop of these drives, this decision was a no-brainer.
