    like everybody else, but has a $25 discount if you use "Visa checkout".

    Here is the link to the drive, click on "Click to See Price in Cart!" under the price at the top:

    Here is the link for Visa checkout, look at "Here's how it works:" towards the bottom:

    My opinions:

    Tiger Direct == mediochre to poor reputation

    WD RED are NAS drives w/ higher power consumption & speed; not best choice for Tivo.

    Red drives have comparable power requirements to AV-GP drives according to WD specs. A little less actually.

    3TB AV-GP:
    Read/Write: 4.4W
    Idle: 4.1
    Standby/Sleep: 0.6

    3TB Red:
    4.1
    2.7
    0.4

    You must have looked at the wrong specs. Speed is 5400 -5900 rpm and power consumption is low as VicVinigar said. Look in the "Hard Drive Upgrade Info" thread and you will see several who are using reds w/o problems.

    I surrender. I was confusing the WD Black with the Red.
