I wasn't expecting to read that a Seagate hard disk can last a little over two years. I have mine for three years now and it seems to work just fine. The only reason why I'd change it would be to get more space. I never dropped it or tilted it while spinning so I guess this can be an important factor when it comes to the life expectancy of hard disks.

Once it is spinning it really doesn't matter, it is a gyro.  I know for car pc's they recommend mounting the drive up and down since the heads are less likely to bump the platters hitting a bump that way.

if i remember right, mounting a hard drive at an angle (not verticle or horizontal) is bad for the drive.

like a 90 degree angle? or 0 degrees, or 180, or whatever that other one is? :P

In the manner that we are talking about, both 45 and 135 are correct.  And no, i am not some idiot that doesn't know about Geometry, I so happen to be Oklahoma's 2009 state curriculum contest 2nd place winner in Geometry so i am right.

Actually you are thinking the angles: 45, 135, 225, 315, 405,...  I think he really meant ANY angle that is NOT 0, 90, 180, 270, 360, 450, ....

So the hard drive will fail at 89 degrees? :O :P

only if 89 degrees was the temp I doubt it would fail at that angle or any other angle 

 

Play till it breaks then learn how to fix it!
