I installed one of these last week. No problems so far. Looks just like
my HR21-700. Very nice job on the write-up.

Very nice article, right to the point, with pictures documenting it, and without (i know we all love it) meaningless info.

Looks like it's getting easier and easier to replace the drives internally.
