I and post #12 agrees with you. He may have mixed them up.Originally Posted by alti
Whats up with #2 on this list (I realize this was posted along time ago). Does anyone else have the same opinion?? Logic tells me that if the drive is mounted vertically there is less chance of the heads smacking a spinning plate.Originally Posted by SteveC
Anyone have anymore thoughts?
No trouble horizontal.... several threads discuss this at an almost theological level

20GB Maxtor, vertical mount. Its been working for 1.5 years. Worst thing that happens to me is that a bad bump sometimes freezes or resets my comp, but I drive a lowered truck that rides like crap :
G945GLCF2 | 512MB RAM | 160GB HD | Holux GPS w/ Routis | XMPCR w/ TOSLINK mod | Audigy 2 NX | | Xenarc 700TSV |Opus 150W PSU.
I have a 120 hitachi deskstar, 7200 rpm, 8mb buffer
I havent had any problems with it. So far i have had the thing drop while in operation and short a power supply, and crashed my computer by going over a big pot hole. It still keeps going though
amd 1700, biostar m7ncg 400, hitachi deskstar 120 8mb , 512 pc2700, liliput 7"
now to put it all together
I had 3 drive failures, all vertical mount. one horizontal failure
You have to think of vibration when you think of 75G.
A little airflow and a little foam rubber will make a drive last forever
