1 TB DVR Upgrade Expansion for Dish Wally

Dish is selling a Seagate 1TB USB 3 portable hard drive for $99 that works with the 211z and the Wally. Thought it had to have its on power and USB 2. Look at this and see if this isn't the same drive on Amazon for $55? Dish doesn't give a lot of info on there site but see what you guys think.

It's the same. Any of the newer low power USB HD's will work.

Yep! We use TRANSCEND STOREJET external drives. The company claims that they are built to MiL specs on shock and vibration, and come in a padded case.

Amazon has them in 1TB and 2TB sizes.

We used the Seagate 2TB w/power until it crapped out. Replace it with a 1TB and its working fine.
