I'm not really interested in opening the unit at first. If it performs well over time and larger "CE" drives appear, I might think about upgrading. Granted, it appears that any drive with the same interface will work, but I'm still leery of using just any ol' drive. And can a consumer even buy a "CE" drive from Seagate? It's not on their Web site.
A search turned up model ST3160022ACE U9 on German and U.K. sites. This appears to be a 160GB "CE" 7200 RPM drive.
Anyway, I'll let others experiment and report on the results of drive upgrades. There are many questions to be answered before I'd be comfortable doing this.
