TiVo HD hard drive replacement recommendations?

I'm looking to upgrade the hard drive on my tivo hd. I was hoping someone could recommend a good hard drive that is known to work well with the TiVo hd. I checked out the FAQ but it looks like it hasn't been updated for the TiVo hd in a while. I would probably look for either a 500gb or 1tb drive depending on the price difference.

Thanks for the help!

WD20EURS.

Read the last few pages of the Drive Expansion sticky thread and search it for that model number.

What dlfl said.

Wait for newegg and Amazon to temporarily drop the price to $100-free shipping, and jump on it.

That'll be your best combination of Gb/$, warranty, designed for A/V work, low power consumption, cool and quiet operation, and proven track record.

But just the same, when you get it, run the WD diagnostic software and do the long test on it before putting it into service, 'cause sometimes, as with any other drive from anyone, "stuff happens".
