Exact replacement for my night owl dvr
I replaced a failed hard drive in my night owl dvr. This hard drive is working great so far.
By Josefine Pedersen
Not a winner!
This drive lasted about two weeks. A major disappointment. It was employed as the primary disk in a fairly high powered pc, so it had the operating system and most of the software written to it. When it failed it was a mess to get every thing reloaded to the replacement drive (not a wd).
