Advertisements Unless you were planning on spending winter at the Antarctic ice station or taking a trip to Mars, who really needs, or could use, 3TB of "temporary, non-archivable" storage on their DVR? Looking at the options on Black Friday, I wondered, why would anybody really need a DVR with 3TB drive? Even in HD, the 3TB drive can record many, many hundreds of hours of video. Far more video than almost any individual could reasonably watch??? Especially when much of the content is being streamed these days. I chose to purchase a 500GB Bolt. This becomes apparent as I update to my new Bolt and realize that "you can't take it with you" and there really is no practical way to move the previously recorded shows on my 7 year-old Series 3 DVR to this new device. So, I am "abandoning" many, many shows collected over time. Keeping the old DVR in my system is about my only option. If you had 3TB worth of shows, you would likely never get to them and then when you DO upgrade, you lose them all, anyway? Is this just marketing?
