    Wtb: 2.5 Hdd

    My 40gb just crashed enough to corupt system files in Vista. So I dont want to use the hard drive again until I need to, to copy things over. So I'm in need of a new hard drive. Something big!

    A desktop drive isn't going to withstand a day in my car.

    whatever.... they are better than you think and have dealt with frame bending car wrecs just fine. The laptop drives are not any more reliable.

    But do not listen to the guy with years of personal experiance and a large pool of data.... try a little research

    I thought Laptop drives were made to be more durable because they are a mobile product? I have An Eclipse thats lowered with Tokico AWD 1.7" springs and I'm on stock shocks right now and its allready pretty stiff.

    I dont need a little research. I've had my share of the past 10 years of my life being nothing but computer related. And a desktop 3.5" hd wont withstand my car. Might as well just get something with a lifetime waranty and backup my **** every night for the rest of my carputers life. Because thats the only way things will work out.
