  • 1.8" HDD can stand up to 500G (2ms) shock

    I searched a lot in many websites and compared a lot of HDD to see which one can stand a higher shock with low power consumption and I found that 1.8" hdd are the best. Did anyone tried one of these... Regards

    Those do seem like a good way to go but it appears that they are not out yet.

        How does the cost compare to a desktop drive?

        For most installs the 3.5" drive is reasonable due to the price/storage and durability gains for 2.5" are not that big of an issue for most people.

        If you need better power consumption of smaller physical size is may be worth the money.

          Anyone have an idea as to how much these will cost? I've searched, but everything I can find on these drives are news releases and such

              Yes, Pricewatch has 30GB 3.5" drives starting arround $30.00.

              I would not recommend the cheapest 3.5" drive but, Price for Storage it is easy to see the appeal.

                  Do you feel the 1.8" drives are worth the 10 times the cost of a desktop drive of the same size?

                    Anyone curious about how much longer we have to put up with drives with moving parts? I cant wait for solid state storage to catch up in size and put HDD to rest for good. Just my 2 cents. BTW those drives are wicked looking considering their size. I like it!

                      These are what's used in Ipods. Find someone with an old ipod and there ya go. I just ordered an external case for one bc my friend gave me her old "broken" ipod.

                        Personally I don't so. The automotive drive I have is great and is being used specifically for the automobile industry.

                        Unless you have very tight space constraints then I wouldn't pay the premium.

                          Be very careful when comparing the "G" rating on drives as there are quite a number of things that are measured. The most important is the "operating" and "non-operating" measurements. Next is "shock" (single sudden movement) vs. "vibration" (continuous movement)

                          The one thing that sets laptop (and smaller) drives apart from 3.5" desktop drives is that their operating shock measurements are much closer to their non-operating shock measurements. Obviously, this is because these drives are expected to experience vibration while they are being used. Desktop drives, OTOH, will often have non-operating shock values comparable to laptop drives so they will withstand the rigors of shipping, but are *far* more sensitive to shock and vibration when in operation.

                          -p.

                            I briefly looked at using one of these. They look very attractive to start with, but the 3.3V supply voltage put me off. I think the interface signal levels are at the same levels, whereas most IDE interfaces are (afaik) 5v.
