Apricorn, the leader in personal storage, has announced DVR Xpander, a digital video recorder solution that instantly expands the amount of content consumers can store on a DVR.
From television shows to movies to sporting events, DVR Xpander will enhance the way people manage the TV shows they record by adding up to 280 hours of standard TV or 60 hours of high definition programming to your DVR. Now users no longer have to sacrifice their favorite TV shows to make room for newer shows.
Apricorn’s DVR Xpander, available in two capacities, 250GB and 500GB, is the perfect companion for the Scientific Atlanta 8300 series DVR and any DVR equipped with an active eSATA port.
"We designed our DVR Xpander to be a quiet, reliable, easy to use tool which greatly increases the amount of content users can store with their DVR," said Mike McCandless, Apricorn’s VP of Sales and Marketing. "In three simple steps, users are ready to start recording. It’s as simple as connecting to the DVR, formatting the drive and recording your favorite show."
"Cox Communications & Time Warner customers with the Scientific Atlanta 8300HD make up the bulk of our installed base at this time," added Mike McCandless.
DVR Xpander comes in a sleek aluminum enclosure, measures 4.80" x 1.80" x 8", can operate in horizontal or vertical positions, and includes an ultra-cool fan that keeps the enclosure at optimal temperature, extending the life of your hard drive.
The easy to use DVR Xpander comes with stand, eSATA cable, AC power adapter and Quick Start Guide. DVR Xpander will support your dual tuner DVR functions, including simultaneously recording two high definition channels while playing one back.
