Western Digital has introduced a 1TB version of its My DVR Expander, it's compatible with TiVo Series3 and TiVo HD DVRs. The My DVR Expander 1TB costs $199.99.
TiVo Verified™ compatible with TiVo Series3™ and TiVo HD DVRs, the new My DVR Expander is capable of storing up to 140 hours of high-definition (HD) television programming based on 1 TB of hard drive storage. The My DVR Expander, which utilizes an eSATA connection, is perfect for consumers who need more room to store the ever-expanding HD entertainment options offered by their service providers.
“It is a great time to be a TiVo user because of the countless entertainment options available with just a click of the TiVo remote,” said Andrew Morrison, director of Platform Product Marketing, TiVo Inc. “In this universe of unlimited content, WD is helping save avid TiVo users from ever having to make the painful decision of choosing one show over another, something we know will be well received in the TiVo community. And the My DVR Expander fits in with the TiVo philosophy perfectly as it is reliable, easy to use, and makes the experience of HD television even better.”
“As the amount of HD TV programming continues to grow, TiVo customers have an even greater demand for storage capacity,” said Dale Pistilli, vice president of marketing for WD’s branded products group. “WD’s My DVR Expander lets consumers spend more time enjoying a wider variety of recorded programs rather than figuring out which shows to delete when they run short on disk space.”
