Apricorn DVR Xpander solves the storage space problem

apricorndvrxpanderThe DVR Xpander does exactly what its name implies, it instantly expands the number of television shows, movies and sporting events you can store on your DVR. The Digital Video Recorder (DVR) has changed the way you watch TV, putting you in complete control of when and how you watch the programs you love.

Unfortunately there is never enough space on the DVR hard drive to record everything you want to watch, especially if you are recording it in high definition. When the hard drive is full you must delete shows to free up space for the new programs you want to watch.

The DVR Xpander solves the storage space problem by allowing you to instantly add up to 843 hours of standard TV or 187.5 hours of high definition programming with the DVR Xpander 1.5 Terabyte.
