  • Car pcs in the boot w/sub Conclusive answer? yes ive searched

    OK

    Ive search about this and its all been mixed opinions. There was some ppl with 3.5"...............HD's posting some horror stories and ppl saying get 2.5" laptop ones. Well ive got a 2.5"er.... lucky me ha and wonna stick it in the boot but i am scared about vibrations. (yes we're still talking pcs here)

    My changer has always been OK but a carputer, there doesnt seem to be a conclusive answer. How many of you have got them in the boot near/next to a sub

    cheers

            I was in a car accident where my car was literally bent in half (passenger side) and totalled. Thankfully I was ok and so was my hard drive.

              As far as magnetism goes, you will be ok unless you physically put the hard drive ON the magnet.

              As for vibrations, I wouldn't mount it real close.

                Let me just tell you my story. I had a 30gig 2.5" drive in my ride, and it would skip constantly. Engine vibrations, too deep/loud of a bass note (my drive was even in the dash), bumps in the road. These little drives seem too sensitive. It finally crashed so I got a 20 gig 2.5" and it did the same thing. So rather than crashing that one too, I just opted for the 40gig 3.5" drive. I haven't had any problems with it yet, and I've had it installed for about 2 weeks.
