Hard Drives

IBM’s new 120GXP line of hard drives come with a daily power-on rating. This has caused some confusion about drives that everyone assumed could be used 24/7 but are actually rated for about 11 hours of usage a day. Which is downright poor. IBM then pulled this rating off their datasheet after people pestered them about it. Read more. IBM is not impressing me with their screwing around. Especially since the hard drive is the one component in your computer you don’t want to see break down.
