I bought around 10/750GB/WD/Home editions model few years ago Love the EHDS works flawless with my Boxes as 2/722/ks & 211 ..Now I wanna buy some more. ...But I see lots bad reviews with new WD/EHDS in Amzaon.com/customer reviews. Wondering what u guys working with and works flawless with dish boxes these days . Wondering WD is still good or buys Seagate brand!
Thanks

The vast majority of reviews I have seen, including people who use the WD here and from the other forum feel they are very good solid units. It is always possible some newer ones have problems, but I have not seen a rash of complaints about them. I have three for my receivers, and they have been flawless. I have two others for my computers, also flawless.

I went to Amazon, I am seeing overall four star reviews for almost every model. For Seagate mostly four star with some three.

Is there a size limit for EHD's when adding to a 722? How about a 211?

2GB. 1GB for the 211 DVR Conversion.

Thanks Krell. How do I do the DVR conversion on the 211? Just tell the installer?

Actually, it's connect the ehd and follow the prompts to get it activated and have $40 charged against your account.
