Is this a good Hard Drive to use and a good deal for the Roamio?

5TB Seagate for $160 on Rakuten:

I'm thinking no mostly due to the 7200 RPM speed, right?

I am considering this: AV-GP 3 TB vs.WD Red 3 TB
Both have a 3 Year warranty and are within a few dollars of each other, with the AV-GP being less expensive.
Are both drives plug and play in a Roamio Plus? Is there any WD features that have to be turned off or changed prior to using them?

Thanks,
Jerold

The AV-GP is what you want. That's what TiVo uses in their Pro. Yes plug and play for any under 3TB. No prep needed.
