Hey guys I just had an HR44-500 installed. Been a few years since I've had DirecTV and upgraded the external drive. I think I had 1TB before.

 

I was wondering if anyone has had a 6 TB setup and can share what they used? It sounds like this Thermaltake Max 5 ( works with up to 3 TB (even though it says on site only up to 2 TB). Can anyone confirm if this works with 6 TB drives?

 

Also do you guys recommend the Western Digital Reds or Greens?

There are numerous postings in this very same thread from those of us running large drive setups.  I've run up to 16TB personally.

Cool, what is your setup? I looked back in this thread about a year and a half, I see people running more than 4TB but only with RAID, multiple disk setups. Are there known single drive eSata enclosures model numbers that will work with one 6TB drive?

When the 6 GB drives came to shelves? Year and an half?
You must do your leg works, no one used such drive yet. Do own recearch, call and send email requests to mfg of enclosures,ask which one do support the your drive.

I would buy a green model if it AV-GP kind.

There are several people in here using single drive eSATA enclosures.  You just need to do your reading like everyone else has or do like most of us and just give it a shot and let us know if it works or not.

 

The trend seems to be WD Red or Purple drives now.  Several people have them working.  I personally go with Enterprise level Seagate drives.
