The Godzilla PVR


Oh, no. There goes Tokyo my TiVo - hey, hey Godzilla! The dudes from Monster PVR, creators of the Medusa and the Hydra have completed their third beast. This one has 11 tuners—it can record 4 high definition and 7 standard programs at the same time. It's also got a DVD R/RW drive and an LCD window (courtesy of its Silverstone LC16M case). Six Seagate Barracuda hard drives make it breathe fire, a rather complex arrangement of fans keeps it cool. The Intel Pentium D 840 Extreme Edition Processor was chosen for the brain, and they gave it a Coolermaster Hyper 48 pure copper heat sink to make the thing run a bit more quietly. Beyond TV 4 provides the functionality and interface. Total cost to build: $4,284.90. A pittance, my friend, in exchange for having the baddest PVR in the 'hood.
