    The only bad thing i noticed is when waking them both up at the same time, the 8tb takes about 20 seconds longer to respond; whereas the 4tb responds immediately.

    I purchased it to expand my dvr capability (charter) it wasn't compatible; impossible to get a straight answer from charter about maximum size or what brands might work.

    Just have to buy an e-sata cable as this does not come with one.

    I'm not sure if the optimum software cannot address and use all the space or if there is some other issue.

    I added this 2tb fantom drive to my charter dvr (dcx something, i guess) and it works; but not the way i expected from reading online.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    When i initially plugged the drive in, i got the need to format message and then a few moments later the drive 1 is available and ready or something like that.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    But my 8 or 10 recorded shows were still showing on the dvr so i assumed the drive wasn't working.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Later i read on one charter web page that the dvr would choose where to store the programs and that the customer would not be able to tell whether a particular show was recorded on the internal drive or the external drive.
