Jonathan, Bristol IT Professional

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Bought this to replace the paltry 160GB HDD in a Virgin V+HD box.

Using a security torx tool and a quick swap-out (after cloning and expanding relevant partitions), I now have a Virgin box with almost unlimited recording. No worries to think about having to delete programmes or record in SD, this drive has ample capacity for HD all the way.

If you are doing this, please note do not increase the size of the buffering partition (for pausing live TV), it causes the box to freeze on certain channels in regular watching. Just expand the recordings partition.

Really delighted I made this purchase, the WD HDD is made for this function, has shown no issues to date, and is a hassle-free way to expand your recording options with a Virgin box.

An easy job to fit in Sky box as a replacement for the existing smaller drive.

David, IT Professional

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
very quiet, and works well with my Sky HD box.
Far too big, but 1gb was not much cheaper. With about 30 HD movies and lots of other programes recorded it was still only 25% used.
planner is very quick to load.
Bad points:
not sure whether it is due to buffering or Skys code but the fast forward seems erratic
