"Do Not Buy This Product !"
27 December 2010
Pros: Nothing good to say about this product or company.
Cons: Does not work with a Scientific Atlantic 8300HD. Video/Audio freezes on a regular basis and programs stop recording randomly. Customer service was of no help and would not take product back. Specification sheet is very mis-leading.
Summary: ...and now I can say that my TIVO loves me. For months, I've had to let go of a favorite HD show or movie, only to regret the deletion shortly thereafter. The expander has changed all of that. TIVO is no longer stressed out with the amount of information stored on its system. Now we can enjoy having 5, 10, 15 HD shows in the queue without feeling the pressure of having to watch it before it is deleted. Permanently.
Pros: Compact, Easy To Setup, Easy to use, High Capacity
Summary: Not long after buying my TiVo the hard drive was filled with programs and movies. I purchased this DVR Expander to increase the storage capacity of the TiVo and have been very happy with it. Once the Expander is connected, the TiVo works exactly the same as before the addition, just with a much greater storage capacity. Highly recommended for anyone with a TiVo.
Pros: Compact, Easy To Setup, Easy to use, High Capacity, Quiet
Summary: Plug and play for TiVO Series3 DVR. Plugged it and started up TiVO and it recognized that there is an additional drive and after 3-5minutes it automatically started to record more shows. Perfect for people who want to back up data as well.
Pros: Easy for TiVO Series3 DVR, Easy To Setup, Easy to use, Fast, High Capacity, Quiet
Summary: Setup is so simple that anyone can do it! Installing this is just as easy as using the Tivo interface. It costs a bit more than your average external 500GB drive, but it's worth it. The basic hard disk inside the TivoHD is great, but it fills up far too fast; especially with HD content. This black box of joy allows you to watch all of your favorite shows at your convenience. It's cool, silent, and matches well with the TivoHD unit.
