Hi Junior,

Junior, this actually sounds interesting and I'm really tempted also but I have a few questions.

Is the power consumption higher due to the bigger drive?
How is the battery performance after the upgrade?
Does it get hotter?
Is it louder?

I think this is a good option for people looking for other alternatives due to the disk space limit (see the other thread I started)

^ I think if the drive power rating is the same and rpm rating is the same, I would guess power consumption won't change.

Most 2.5" HD are around .5a~1a max, so battery should last about as long regardless the size.

Thanks for the info.

I'm still pondering my decision to either:

1) upgrade, or
2) buy an Archos 7... ... :?

Sorry E. A little computer explosion over the weekend prevented me from getting online/ :( As to power consumption they seem to be about the same. The biggest difference is in idle or standby time which seem to be cut in half.

No problem at all Smegs.
I was embarrased also when I found out this way but we have a community of interest in this forum and life has these tragic times.
I hope he's ok too.
