The new drives include a no-fan passive cooling system and an eco-friendly WD AV-GP hard drive with GreenPower technology, making it quiet and ideal for use in living rooms or bedrooms, while consuming up to one-third less power than standard external hard drives.
The My DVR Expander USB Edition external hard drive has been successfully tested for compatibility with DISH Network ViP Series HD DVRs. Further compatibility of the My DVR Expander drive is planned as other cable and satellite DVR manufacturers enable the USB ports on their currently-deployed DVRs.
WD's My DVR Expander USB Edition external hard drive is available now in the United States by ordering online from WD at www.shopwd.com. MSRP for the My DVR Expander USB Edition drive with 500 GB is $149.99 USD.
