I'm getting an HR21 soon, and would like to get suggestions on which 1TB HD to choose for an upgrade.
Which ones are quiet? Run cool?

I recently upgraded my HR21 to an Antec MX1 Esata enclosure and a Western Digital AV-GP 1TB drive. The combination works great! It is quiet and the MX1 keeps the drive real cool.

Previously, I had used a Seagate Barracuda 1TB drive in the same enclosure that was horrible. The recordings were jerky and the drive slowed the dvr operations down. The dvr would not repsond to the remote control! Do not use the Seagate Barracuda!

Good Luck!
