Was your unit the beefy first gen model?
How are you liking the slim? My 2nd gen 40G is starting to get a little noisy when I slip it BDs. I've been eyeballing a slim to be my main unit and thinking of retiring my current one to the bedroom.
But I just fucking KNOW as soon as I buy it they're gonna drop the price or introduce a beefier, slimmer, sleeker model with quadruple the hard drive!
God damn triple-dippin' bastards.
