I continue to always try to stay current with a personal favorite. It was the 750GB Seagate DB35. It changed to the 1TB Western Digital WD10EVCS. The WD10EVCS is an awesome drive in an Antec MX-1 enclosure. The WD10EVCS is now hard to find as they transition to the newer WD10EVDS. The older WD10EVVS seems to be more readily available. The EVVS is 8MB cache, the EVCS is 16MB, and the newest EVDS is 32MB. Supposedly the cache size should not affect DVR performance.

I love the WD10EVCS drive in the MX-1 enclosure. There are also larger equivalent WDC drives, and the Seagate Pipeline drives are good.

I know it's not recommended by DIRECTV .. DIRECTV's drive choices are not random from my understanding. YMMV with other choices.
