DVR Box is so tiny

Why is my DVR BOX so tiny and  made out of cheap plastic?

when it broke after 3 months of use, we had to make a 60 min round trip drive to get a new one. When we hooked it up , it was broken too!!

    Newer stuff probably doesn't have its traditional bulky storage device.  My guess is it records to an Embedded Multimedia Card or a Flash Memory Chip.

    No doubt it's plastic and cheap because service providers monopolize the cable-box.  Could you imagine the competition if Google, Apple, MS, Amazon built cable-boxes?
