If you don't mind, could you please let us know your opinion on upgrading to the Hitachi 60GB HDD on the TC1000? I have read your comments previously on this drive and I am probably going to get it. But as with all things, there is the immediate review and then there is the 'long-term' review. I just wanted to know your opinion now that you have been operating with the drive for a while.
The questions I am most curious about are:
1] Did you see any issues with respect to heat? Is it warmer? Considerably so?
2] How did it impact battery life? Negligible or significantly? I can't imagine that battery life would have improved.
3] Having to do it all over again, would you? Are there any other drives out on the market now that you see having a similar (or greater) benefit?
I should have my TC1000 tomorrow and I have already obtained the extra 512 MB of memory. So the only other thing I am looking at it the HDD.
Thanks. Like you, I plan on ripping movies onto the HDD to play them. That brings up a point? What's the battery life like when you watch a DVD movie from the HDD? Can you get through a full 2 - 2 1/2 hour movie?
