what are the reasons to use a DB35 over a regular drive?
I have a 750GB seagate in one of mine, and its not a DB35. I can say this much about it:
1) It's the fastest tivo in my house.
2) It's cooler than the original drive (several degrees, by touch...no precise measurements). The average case temperature is 38-40C (same as with original 40GB drive.
3) It's quieter than the original drive. I have to be withing 3 or 4 feet of the tivo, and actively attempting to listen to the hard drive to hear anything. If 2 drives are both so quiet they cannot be heard, does it really matter which of the two it the quietest?
So what does the DB35 have that's worth the extra $200? For it's price, you can almost have 2x 750GB going with the standard PC drive.
