Just wanted to let everyone know that Best Buy has their 250GB Hitachi hard drives on sale for $90 this week. No mail in rebates and this drive seems to have a lot favorable reviews around the net and comes w/ a 3 year warranty.

I'm sure it will "fit" unless this is a throw-back to the larger full-height drives. :)

Enough with the smart comments...

From my reading, you'll have to enable the large HD support for upgrades, or have a newer model of Tivo to use all 250gig, without that, you'd lose half the storage space...

Let us know how long it survives in a Tivo environment. Word on the street is that IBM/Hitachi drives absolutely suck for use in a Tivo. I just hope it's got a decent warranty.

If it's a half-height 3-1/2" IDE drive (i.e., currently the standard for all PC drives) it will fit in a Tivo.

Fry's is notorious for losing rebate submittal forms. It's not unusual to have to resubmit it several times before they process a rebate check.
