While some drives may be "designed" for use in a DVR, at least based upon everything others have said in the past, ANY drive is fast enough for Tivo use.. (I haven't done the math, but maybe it's different now, with 6 tuners recording + streaming + downloading..)
Maybe the "NAS" drives have a longer warranty?
Also, from what I remember about previous drives, "DVR" drives really just have extra capabilities in the command set that AFAIK Tivos don't even use anyway.
