    Post Neo35 Follow-up

    Was wondering how the Neo35 was working for whom ever ordered one? I just can't get the noise out of my system to my satisfaction (and if I hook another source it is crystal clear) so I am considering making the move to one of these or something similar. Just looking for feedback and such.

    I am very happy with mine, but in order to reduce problems, you should use a 2.5" laptop hard drive. They require less power and generate a lot less heat. Also, they are more immune to shock and vibration, since space is limited in the NEO.

    I used a ground loop isolator from Radio Shack, which reduced the noise from my altenator to below audible limits.

    It was purchased from computer geeks for $259, $94 for a 4.3 gig 2.5" hd and $3.95 for the 2.5 to 3.5" HD kit.

    Once prices drop more on 2.5" hard drives, I will upgrade to a larger HD.

    REMEMBER: The wire leads coming out of unit are voltage regulated, which it is OK to hook up to your vehicle's wiring, but the barrel connecter is not, and requires regulated power. You will fry your unit if you do not heed this warning.

    check out mp3.com's hardware-carplayer board for lots of feedback and questions..

    ..i got mine with a 30g hdd..
    some major probs are that many hard drives do not work well..i got a seagate (maxtor and Western Dig do not work)
    ..also most people do not have a deep eough dash (11 inches deep) so they have to buy a lcd remote and install the unit in their trunk or under their seat..thats cool also

    ..once you get everything working properly..you'll be in love with your neo
