Question About Hard Drive And Keyboard
Question # 1 - I just wanted to ask you guys since I be getting a new Hard Drive soon for the C-300 can you guys tell me some known Hard Drive make and model which works great with c-300 without giving any problems. I am interested in 2TB or 3TB drives off course 3.5 inch let me know which one has worked well so far with the C-300


Question # 2 - I was wondering is there a way to make a full keyboard work with C-300 ? any possible way ?

So this "Western Digital Caviar Green 2 TB Desktop Hard Drive WD20EARX " Would be fine ? for internal ?

RE: Question About Hard Drive And Keyboard
Any basic green SATA HD is good, 5400rpm, no big buffers needed, the slowest one you can buy is still 4 times to fast for the C300.
If you want to spend extra.... go for silent.....
As for 2 or 3TB go for the most GB per $, storage is never enough anyway so the additional one will be bought someday anyway and by the time you are filling up the last TB the money you saved will give you twice the GB per $.

I have a wireless no brand keyboard with receiver plug in the front USB port.... works well.. as an addition to the remote..


PCH-A100/A210/C200/A400 500GB EXT3 HDD<-->HDMIv1.3<-->Onkyo TX-NR1010<-->HDMIv1.3<-->Panasonic TX-P46S10 + 6 Bowers & Wilkins speakers.
10 NTFS 2TB USB drives on 3 hubs attached to the A400, 2 Seagate blackarmour NAS 3TB, 2 Seagate Central NAS 4TB.


The inability to setup and configure the NMT should not be disguised as a defect of the box...

Thank you for the answers, So I do have wireless Logitech Dinovo Edge keyboard I will give that a shot hopefully that works.

And for the Hard-Drive You are right so I would go with 2tb If I need a additional space I can always go with 2nd one and I would get more space for Dollars thank you so much So I am thinking of going with "Western Digital Caviar Green 2 TB Desktop Hard Drive WD20EARX"

Hopefully all this setup works out for me thanks a lot for all your quick and wonderful answers
