I'm pretty good at spotting an understatement and i would have to say that is one right there cloud. LOL

But just so the info is there you could go to an infinite amount of space using a selector switch, as always i will add that i never found need for more then 300GB since it held 98 xbox games and thousands of ROMs plus a load of Apps.

Actual I have a 1.5TB in my xbox and other than the extremely long boot time you would never know it was there. I also tested a 1TB drive and the 1.5 only added about another 12-15 seconds to the boot time. The adapter I found was only 7bucks that worked for me. For those interested boot time with a 1TB drive was 37 seconds booting xbmc

ya I actually seen the 2TB WD Green for sale at microcenter near me on sale for 260-270 but I still went with the 1.5TB for 3 reasons (A) price my WD 1.5TB cost me $140 (B) load time I dont want to wait over a minute for it to boot and (C) i don't think I've seen anyone else put that kind of size in one of these... As long as 64k clusters are good enough which it should be, I guess you could go that big. waiting 50 seconds to boot up is long enough for me though Laughing
