WD My Book  AV 1TB USB 2.0 / eSATA 3.5

4 out of 5 eggs Does not work with Tivo 08/13/2012

This review is from: WD My Book AV 1TB USB 2.0 / eSATA 3.5" DVR Expander WDBABT0010HBK-NESN Black

Pros: N/A

Cons: Bought it to work with Tivo Series 4 and off-the-shelf it does not. It needs to be labeled as Tivo ready in order to be used in Tivo (or so says Tivo Support)

Other Thoughts: I gave 4 star rating because I didn't want to mark the product down since it probably works fine, but I haven't (yet) used it for what I purchased it for.
NOTE: I'll try formatting it using EXTFS format to see if it will work then.

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6870 DirectX 11 100314SR 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Running 4 x 24" monitors - two landscape, and two portrait.
Card has worked flawlessly for me in Win7 64-bit OS.

Cons: Requires Active Mini Display Port to DVI adapter. I purchased two of the POWERCOLOR ACTIVE MDP to SL DVI-D ADAPTER-C Mini DisplayPort to DVI adapters (

This isn't so much of a CON as a be aware of this.

Other Thoughts: Not sure how to get 5 or 6 monitors to work.

If you hook up a monitor and it appears to be detected by Windows but you can't seem to activate it, then you might need to use an Active DisplayPort adapter. At least this is what happened to me. It was very frustrating when I first purchased this card to find my 3rd monitor showing up but now working! After several searches, I found that I needed an Active DisplayPort and then it worked.

Fantom Drives GreenDrive Pro 2TB USB 2.0 / eSATA 3.5

Pros: Appears sturdy, well built, somewhat heavy (not too heavy but not flimsy). Runs FAST! I did a test copying some 1.5GByte files, and they started at 150Mbytes/sec, and dropped to between 85 and 95Mbytes/sec for a sustained rate.

This is much faster than the fastest USB 2.0 drive (or thumb drive) that I have which top out at 20-30MBytes/sec.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: No eSata cable is provided so buy one if you need it.

I purchased this eSATA drive because I finally have a computer that supports eSATA. I am now likely to purchase some SATA to eSATA extensions (they plug into the SATA on the MOBO and extend to the back of your PC and take up slot on the back of your PC).

This is 2-3 times faster than USB drives I've used. So when backing up 2TB of data, speed matters.

NOTE: I've had this only a week so I can't say anything about how long it will last (yet).
