Apricorn boosts DVR Xpander to 1.5TB

updated 04:00 pm EST, Thu January 22, 2009

Apricorn DVR Xpander 1 5TB

Apricorn today ramped up its DVR Xpander to include a new 1.5TB model. The practical capacity is about 50 percent more than before and lets owners of recorders with active eSATA or USB 2 ports store as much as 843 hours of additional standard definition TV or 187.5 hours of typical HDTV programming. The company vows a quiet drive but also uses active fan cooling to keep the hard drive inside cool even in tight areas where passive cooling isn't enough.

While not limiting the choices of DVR, Apricorn recommends its add-on mainly for the Scientific Atlanta 8300 DVRs common to cable TV providers as well as DISH Networks' ViP recorders for its satellite service. The 1.5TB drive is already available online and costs $239, while the earlier 1TB model comes in at $179.
