1TB HD as well - good deal or not?
The largest internal 2.5" PATA IDE drive is 320GB.
I sold both my ATV1s for ATV2s. AirPlay, Netflix and iOS updates.
In all likelihood that is an external drive, probably via a software mod to enable the usb port or possibly an eSata hardware mod. Either way there are pata ide drives last I looked up to 500GB but afaik no internal drive at 1GB (unless its a pata to sata mod, in which case its possible).
Either way ... if the atv1 does what you want, not a bad deal.
There are people selling 1TB modded ATV1's on ebay. They are using PATA to SATA adapters to fit a HDD in the ATV.
I paid more than 100GBP for a 160Gb ATV1 brand new so if someone is offering a genuine internally modded ATV working +/- the software hacks, I think it is a good deal.
There are plenty of threads about the pros and cons of ATV1 v ATV2 but if internal storage matters to you, then go for it!
PS: if you are buying on ebay, there are many people offering the upgrade SERVICE for 100GBP but you have to supply the ATV.
