Good but was it the best choice?

BobG, Amazon

  • Summary: If you want to keep it simple, buy this, it works. It requires no technical savvy to set up ... the plugs fit only one way ... plug it in and go. However in retrospect I'm not sure this was the best deal. Would another eSATA drive have worked?

Great TiVo Extender

D. Grantham, Amazon
20 December 2008
  • Summary: We have had this drive for about 1 month and it has worked flawlessly. It was easy to set up (the Tivo did have to reboot 2 times to finally see it). I bought this so we would have room for all the programs we watch in HD. We now have much more HD TiVo recorded than we actually watch.

  • Summary: Great product! Good price. Easy to install. Works seamlessly. Con: Once installed it can not be removed without losing everything on both drives. Parts of each program are installed on both drives. The whole program is not recorded on a single drive.

Works as promised

Jeremy T. Messenger, Amazon
16 November 2008
  • Summary: The TiVo had a couple of issues connecting to this initially, but since then it's worked without a hitch. It provides SIGNIFICANTLY more storage and as a result, I haven't missed any of my favorite shows for quite a while.

No worries

ErinK, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought this to go with my HD TiVo. Followed the directions and it was really simple to set up (there is one trick, I think you have to power off the TiVo and boot the drive first, then boot the TiVo).

Good product, could be better

oddlycalm, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a very convenient way to expand the recording capacity of your TiVo DVR. It is easy to connect the average user should have no problems. The only caveat is that there is no active cooling so make certain it's in a location where air can circulate. Heat is the enemy of hard drives.

Used for Tivo expansion

Tucson AZ, Amazon
9 October 2008
  • Summary: I purchased this to expand my Tivo storage. Connection was easy and I have had no problems so far. On the negative side: This is the ONLY expansion drive approved by Tivo and for which they offer technical support. This is too bad because I would rather have had a 1TG, or larger, drive.

Good Buy to boost up you HD-TiVo

M. Marino, Amazon
15 September 2008
  • Summary: Great product, nice design and blends right in with the team of electronics under the television. I had no problem hooking this drive up to my TiVo HD! Only wish was that there could have been a 1TB version available.
