Apricorn Launches DVR Expander 2TB for DIRECTV[R] Customers.

With Twice the Capacity of Other DVR Expansion Systems, Apricorn's DVR Expander Makes More Space for HDTV

POWAY, Calif. -- Apricorn, ( the leader in personal storage, today announced a 2TB* DVR Expander design for DIRECTV DVRs, the largest capacity DVR external hard drive on the market. Apricorn's DVR Expander can add up to 1124 hours of standard programming or 250 hours of high definition programming to DIRECTV DVRs.

"DIRECTV provides the largest number of high definition programs in the industry," said Mike McCandless, Apricorn's VP of Sales and Marketing. "With high definition content, recording space is at a premium and can quickly consume the internal storage capacity of the DVR. The launch of Apricorn's 2TB DVR Expander now gives our customers enough space to record hundreds of hours of their favorite HD programs."

Available in 1TB, 1.5TB and 2TB capacities, the DVR Expander gives customers plenty of room to record the over 130 HD channels that DIRECTV currently provides.
