What is the largest HD someone here has successfully installed in their eMac?
I have a 1.25GHz eMac (next to last model) with the original 80GB drive and it is getting a bit tight on space so I am thinking about replacing it with something larger. I already have external drives, but tend to leave them off when not in use (since they do not sleep with the computer) so some things I do not want to off-load (such as iTunes) and have to remember to power up the externals each time I want to use that application.
Anyway, I know my model can take a 250GB drive but I am wondering if anyone has tried a 300GB drive. I am not sure if the eMac's ATE controller can run 300GB drives so I am looking for first hand experience. Outpost.com has a Seagate 5 year warranty 300GB model for $80 after a $50 mail in rebate and free shipping. That tends to be a bit cheaper in $/GB than most of the 250GB drives I see around and those you usually have to pay shipping and if they are cheaper tend to be one-year warranty Maxtor models.
So I thought I would check here and see if anyone might have tried a 300GB (or larger) drive in the eMac.
Thanks,
Patrick

Hello PT,
At "Accelerate Your Mac!" I recalled seeing a report of a user installing a 320GB drive successfully on his eMac.
So after some digging I found the link again:

All you have to do is select "eMac" from Computer Model, and "Harddrive" from Drive Type to read the reports.
