What were these guys thinking? Such a waste of time and resources to put any more effort into mechanical drives beyond capacity. =/

Wouldnt a mechanical drive in a car that is bumping around and vibrating be a recipe for disaster? I would think an SSD would be the best choice in that type of environment?

As long as it's mounted vertically, there's not really any major danger. Laptop HDD's have had built in shock sensors that've made them perfect for carputers for years.

As would I... And a $500 SSD wouldn't really make much of a difference in price when you're buying a car!
