This 4 TB External hard drive is being used as my DVR expander for my DirecTV Genie. So here is a little back story:
I have Verizon Fios and DirecTV Genie service in my home. (Yes I have both for sports etc). I have used the Western digital 1TB expandable DVR expanders for a few years on both Directv and my Fios service. The Western Digitals work great but... 1TB is simply not enough for when I go on vacations or record a lot of shows within a week. I have been looking for a perfect solution to my storage needs. I HAVE found what I've been looking for in the Fantom 4TB drive. (Disclaimer, this drive only works with my Directv Genie, My Fios box wouldn't recognize it).
Pros: -The drive really does expand my DirecTV Genie to 4TB. I have literally over 80 hours of HD content and only 4% is full so far. That's 96% free. Since I know the capacity limits of the 1TB I can say the Directv Genie uses the full 4TB of space. -Easy to install and use (Just unplug...
I bought this to use with my Direct TV (directv) Genie. The web site says it won't support more than 2TB I think but this 4GB one works fine. The blue light on the front is a little bright so I might put some tape over it, but other than that it's fine.
FYI, this comes with a USB cable but not eSATA. If you want to hook up to eSATA you should buy one of those as well. Amazon has them as add ons for not that much.
Hooked this up to my Directv receiver and it worked great... for 9 weeks. Then it gave out and won't even power up anymore. It's DEAD. Fantom will not replace or warranty this drive. So unless you want a $150 brick in a few months with no customer support or recourse, don't buy this!! Wish I could go back in time and found a different way to get my Directv Hard drive replaced. What a waste this was.
