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.
Summary: This is my 3rd try at expanding my Scientific Atlanta 8300HD and this is the first problem free one. I read hundreds I mean hundreds of reviews before purchasing the Western Digital MY DVR EXPANDER 1TB,I even wrote Western Digital for the specific info on the drive itself (they were very helpful by the way).This is the only one of the 3 other drives by other manufacturers' that I tried that did not Pixelate at any time.This drive is rock solid.I highly recommend it.
Pros: EVERYTHING WORKS,NO PIXELATION AT ALL.
Cons: I PAID 199.99 AT BEST BUY I FOUND IT PRICY BUT WORTH IT NEVERTHELESS.
Summary: After reading the reviews on this site I was very sceptical about buying this. However with my set-up it works perfectly. I have run this for 4 months without any issues. Including two power cuts. Just to be clear the set up is a 320Gb Version of the TIVO. I have turned off the functionality which is supposed to predict what you like and constantly record programmes. (This did not predict very accurately ).
Pros: Extra Expansion Has been seamless
Cons: RAID Array set up may be a pain in the future, pricey
