Briefly: Apple TV Drive Upgrades [Updated]
Tuesday, March 27, 2007 - 1:34 AM EST
Posted by: Brian

As most of you know by now, Engadget and Apple TV Hacks have both published guides on how to upgrade the hard drive in your Apple TV. I was able to successfully upgrade the hard drive in our test unit over the weekend. I can report that it was an easy upgrade, and that our Apple TV continues to work properly. That said, I'm sure there are people out there that would like to have more internal storage without attempting the upgrade on their own. This is where the new Apple TV upgrade service from iResQ looks to come in. For a fee, iResQ will pickup your shiny new Apple TV and have one of their Apple-certified technicians install the hard drive. The upgrades will be performed within 24 hours of receipt at iResQ's repair facility in Kansas City, and they provide each customer with the appropriate shipping materials and pre-paid labels to safely transport the units around the country. Pricing is $199 (80GB/5400 rpm), $229 (120GB/5400 rpm), and $259 (160GB/5,400 rpm). This also includes overnight pick-up and delivery. As you can see, the service doesn't come cheap, but it is another option. I would also like to mention that iResQ offers a similar upgrade service for the Mac mini. More information about it can be found here.

Update: TechRestore is now offering a similar upgrade service for the Apple TV. Pricing is $99 (60GB), $149 (80GB), $169 (100GB), $179 (120GB), and $219 (160GB). More information can be found here.
