How much vibration can a typical hard drive tolerate without shortening its lifespan?
The reason I ask is that my Dad has a 550W RMS Stereo + 2x 200W Powered Subs on a hard wood floor barely 10 feet away from my PC. It's so loud that you can hear it a half of a mile away over all the cars and you can feel the vibrations on pavement 75 feet away, or more.
My common sense tells me that's not good for an HDD. What do you guys think?
