iPod Classic Question

I am thinking about buying one of the 240GB iPod Classic models from eBay. I’ve been doing some research and apparently the company who sells them just uses refurbished iPod Classic 160’s and then puts a 240GB hard disc in it with the 5.5g back cover to fit the HDD.

I am just wondering if you guys think it’s worth buying. It’s only ~$30 more than a new 160GB and they have gotten positive reviews as far as I can see.

Does anybody know if Apple will be releasing an iPod with more storage than the 160 soon? Otherwise I think I am going to go ahead and get one of these when I have the cash.


Thanks for the help guys.
