    Yeah your kinda right, any material could theoretically be made a few atoms thick, but how much is that gonna rocket the price up? A hell of a lot!! Platters are made from glass these days btw but they're coated with a metal layer which is quite thick which explains the weight of it :thumb:

    damn guess you shouldn't smack one of the most sensitive peices of eqipment in your pc. although my pc buzzes every now and then and i do the samething, im pretty sure its just a fan though, :worried: I hope anyway.

    I was helpin a friend work on his pc and we opened it while it was still on looked around and he leaned it over to get a better view and the hd let out this hellacious noise. Needless to say the pc crashed and then wouldn't boot past bios. we opened up the hd and there was a huge scratch about halfway across. The arm dug in like a son of a b!tch and was even a little bent.

    my PC was making a terible nose a while back, and reading this thread reminded me of it :) thankfully is was just a hard drive cooler fan, and as it was a cheap cooler, i just moded it.

    Esencially that meant fileing the opening round the fan blades so they didnt run :p

    So Western Digital has upped its max lifespan from 2 months to 6 months ehh? LOL. I'm joking, but these kinds of things happen way too often on Western Digital HD's ... I know from experience. So I stick with Maxtors. :rock: I still have an 80MB Maxtor HD that still works! Not that It'll do any good. :hehe:
