Very thin hard disks

<< < (3/3)

Glass that is used in Windows of old buildings tends to warp as it has been subject to gravity for all these years it has been in vertical position.

Do you have reason to think there might be a problem with them?

Normal internal hard disks have a height of 25 mm / 1" about, those thin hard disks have a height of 12...15 mm / 0.5" about. Within half room mechanical components must be thinner, too thin for my liking. I fear/bet those thin hard disks sacrifice reliability for the sake of size.

^ with a single platter, it seems to me like only half as much can go wrong.
But I've never seen any stats about failure rates, so I dont really know.
