the faster a HDD spins the quicker it wears out?
I'm thinking a HDD is like a tire on the car, the faster it contacts the road the quicker it wears out correct?
Lately I have been watching W7MC recorded TV at the accerated pace one click fast forward and now am concerned the HDD may wear out much quicker than if I played back at normal speed.
I have three metods of skipping commercails
1. if I know for sure the exact amount of commercials I'll use the 30 second skip function on the remote.
2.certain channels I can guesstimate the curosr move drag distances this is the quickest method.
3.plain fast forward.
So if this faster spinning HDD doe's in fact put extra wear and tear on the HDD is true then I mite have to reconcider my methods of skipping the peskie commercails.
