Does anyone have any experience using a WD Caviar Green 1TB as a PVR expansion drive? The sales person at my retail store said some people had issues, however I haven’t been able to find much info on this. I would prefer using the Caviar Green over the Black as is it will run cooler and consume less power, however I am concerned about potential problems when is spins down. My PVR is a SA 8300 HD.
I’d stick with a model recommended for your application.
Good suggestion, that was my first choice but unfortunately I can’t find any of the AV drives in stock anywhere and was wondering if the Caviar Green would do the job. Unless someone has some experience I guess I will hold off until the AV’s become available
You are probably lookng for something larger, yes?
Thanx, I didn’t see this before. I think I will try the 1 TB drive green drive ‘wd10evds’.
