If you can figure out how to know the make/model while it's already in the replay, I have 3 data points. Otherwise, it's too big of a PITA to pull the machines out and the covers off.


That said, I've never had a problem with a replayTV drive - and I think I have at least 1 maxtor with a 16MB cache.


Oh, and all drives work in DVArchive servers . . . .

411Zones will give you the make and model number.

I'm (and think others would be) primarily interested these types of HDs:


>Newer larger HDs 400gig+

>Working and nonWorking 16meg model#s

>even successfull stories of SATA drives with a SATA adapters

>any other useful info

Ken, I'm curious for more info about your experiences with this drive, if you've got a few minutes... TIA!


Looks like the SV35 is a good drive (spec-wise) for use in Replays and seems to cost about the same as a 7200.8 of similar capacity.


Just curious about noise, heat, and other "user" experiences with the drive as compared to other units you have installed.

You need to upgrade to the SA 8300--your bugs will execute faster. Better yet, get the HD version--HD and more storage for your bugs to mess up.

Funny you should ask. Actually when I first installed it I did a quick test. The SV35 was cloned from a ST3250823A 7200.8 So the drive contents were identical. I did a timed 5 minute test booting up each in the replay, playing a file, buffering, ect and measuring power consumption.


As expected the SV35 averaged perhaps a little more than 2 watts less than the corresponding (otherwise identical) 7200.8 in the very brief test. So it potentially should run slightly cooler. I'm guessing 6 watts as compared to 8.5 watts.


Performance wise, seemingly identical to the 7200.8.

This is great info, Ken. Seems like I can find the SV35 250gb for a pretty reasonable price, whereas the equivalent DB35 is too much of a $ per GB premium to justify right now. So I'll go with the SV35 for now.



edit: I found both the SV35 and DB35 250gb at TheNerds for $75. So I guess I'll go with the DB35, unless you have any specific reasons to advise against it!

Brilliant! I can't wait.

Either should be fine. It's unclear to me the power consumption of the DB35. If there happens to be a difference between SV35 and DB35 I'd want the cooler running one. But I haven't tested a DB35 yet. From the DB35 specs it seems the actual power consumption is related to the capacity of the drive and perhaps the revision 7200.2, 7200.3.
