Default 80-Gig Zune Now Available


"The guys who first upgraded the Zunes hard drive are now doing it for the public. You can now send your Zune to Ipodmods.com and they will upgrade it to a 80 gig or a 40 gig model. How ever, doing this will void your Microsoft Zune warranty. The Zune 80 gig model is going to set you back $489.98 in total, once you purchase a hard drive from Ipodmods.com they will install it for free and send it back to you right a way with your upgraded hard drive installed."

For just $239.99 you can get your new Zune upgraded to 80 gigabytes. My that's a lot of space! 80 Gigs would just about hold my entire music collection (in 128 WMA) plus a number of movies! Think about it: You're quadrupling your Zune's capacity for just less than the price of a second Zune. Sounds like a good deal to me. I think, however, that if I'm going to void my Zune's warranty (this service will), I'd rather wait and buy the drive and perform the upgrade myself. Guess I'll just have to wait. (Update: It was correctly pointed out to me that the Zune is 30GB, not 20, so you're really more than doubling your capacity [not quadrupling it] for just less than the price of a second Zune. Sorry 'bout that!)
