WD Introduces DVR Expander to Allow Consumers to Save More, Delete Less on Their Digital Video Recorders


WD’s My Library™ Video Edition™ Easily Adds Up to 60 Hours of High-definition Television Entertainment1

LAKE FOREST, Calif.- Expanding consumers’ TV recording capabilities by up to hundreds of hours, Western Digital Corp. (NYSE: WDC) today introduced its My Library™ Video Edition™ DVR Expander. Capable of storing up to 300 hours of digital standard-definition (SD) or 60 hours of high-definition (HD) television programming based on 500 GB of hard drive storage, consumers can instantly expand their recording capacity by simply attaching the DVR Expander to one of the millions of Scientific Atlanta 8300 DVR Series set-tops currently deployed in the U.S. The My Library Video Edition is perfect for consumers who need more room to store the ever-expanding HD entertainment options offered by their service providers.

“As the adoption of storage-hungry HDTV continues to grow, the demand for additional storage becomes increasingly important to consumers,” said Jim Welsh, vice president and general manager of WD’s branded products and consumer electronics businesses. “When it comes to entertainment, adding WD’s DVR Expander to their DVR lets consumers save more of their TV shows giving them greater control and convenience.”

My Library DVR Expander has been tested for compatibility with Scientific Atlanta 8300 Series digital video recorders (including models 8300 HD, 8300 MR and 8300 HD MR). Further compatibility of the My Library Video Edition DVR Expander is planned as other cable and satellite DVR manufacturers enable the eSATA (external SATA) ports on their currently-deployed DVRs.
