    Not on the current TiVo because they can't take any single drive bigger than 2.2Tb

    Just received 2 of these I ordered from Newegg. EXTREMELY disappointed to see they just had a little bubble wrap around them and loose in an individual box, then both boxes in a larger box. One had one side that wasn't even protected with the wrap. From the Edison NJ center.

    Tested both with WD diagnostics. Both failed the Quick Test. Going back. I will order from Amazon, even though they are $8 more.

    Mine came in an AS bag, nested in locking caps in a hard cardboard box, inside a larger box filled with bubblewrap.

    Maybe the folks in NJ haven't received the packaging memo yet ??

    Received the 2 drives from Amazon. Properly packaged within the plastic standoffs in a box designed for HD's. First drive tested O.K. with the Quick Test and almost through the Extended Test. I'm sure the 2nd will be fine also. Proper packaging makes all the difference.

    That's pretty reasonable, and has 3 yr warranty.. though my comments from above still seem reasonable -- using a bigger drive (cheaper per unit) as an external (i.e. connected to computer) drive for recordings seems about as useful.. though admittedly I've thought of doing BOTH.. expanding the built in P4 drive to 2 TB AND using an external drive.

    It's a nice price, but their customer service just told me these drives don't come in the small cardboard box from Western Digital. instead they come in what they call a "Newegg box". From the last e-mail I received from Newegg Customer Service, it is just a loose drive in a shipping box with peanuts. I'm going to pass. I'd rather pay $15 more to Amazon to get a drive that is packaged properly.
