When it launched back in January, you couldn't really fault Apricorn's DVR Expander for its specifications: 1.5TB of storage for plug'n'play expansion of your DVR, with a range of connectivity to suit various different TiVo, Cable and DirectTV receivers, among others. What was less impressive was the casing; it looked cheap and, certainly in the case of the pink unit Apricorn bizarrely chose for their press shots, not something you'd want sat next to your TV.
