iResQ has begun offering Apple TV storage upgrades to replace the device’s stock 40GB hard drive. The company is currently offering three upgrade options—160GB ($299), 120GB ($259) and 80GB ($209). iResQ said the Apple TV upgrades will be performed within 24 hours of receipt, and that shipping materials and pre-paid labels are provided. “Upon Apple’s delivery of Apple TV’s last week, we immediately received requests for hard drive upgrades,” said iResQ. “After consideration and testing we can confidently perform these hard drive upgrades with ease. All units that arrive will receive our first-class attention, a brand-new hard drive installed by an Apple Certified Technician, and we’ll return it to our customers within 1 business day after we receive it.”

That $299 dollars includes a well padded box to ship and overnight shipping TWO ways, plus all the labor and parts cost. On top of that you get the great service from the staff at iresq. You can often have things back in three days. If this is something that somebody wants, it is very much worth the price tag! Once upon a time someone spent $600 for a 60 GB iPod Photo you know.

I just had my iBook upgraded at iResq with a new hard drive and a superdrive and had a three business day turnaround. These people are reliable, friendly, fast and efficient.

PS: you get to keep the original drive and can get a casing for it to use as an external drive! It’s quite an interesting thought!

For the price of the AppleTV and the upgrade you could by a laptop and hook that up to your TV.  And it would handle all your video formats without having to “hack” it

i was looking at other repair sites and none of them say anything about having Apple Certified techs do the “upgrade.” seems to me that if you’re going to have someone open up your brand new apple tv, you would at least want them apple certified, right?
