Are you sure about claims that the free fall sensor on these drives requires BIOS or OS support?

In my case at least, the latter entirely. The BIOS contains the mechanisms for monitoring the accelerometer, but it does not ever force a head park without software being involved. Basically, if you turned on your laptop but goot stuck at the OS loader or the OS didn't boot, you could then bounce your laptop off the floor a few dozen times and the HDD would die like any other. Also, if you were in Windows with an HD APS monitor running, but then some stray app went berserk and ate 100% CPU, your HDD would be vulnerable then too.

I have an external enclosure that I plan to stick the older 120GB drive into.

I've never had one; but I've seen reports that some Thinkpads have free fall motherboard features that park the drive; but in that case it's a motherboard feature not a drive feature. This would explain the BIOS support. I also doubt that 100% CPU would disable the feature; I would guess that the software only enables and configure features that are controlled by hardware on the motherboard without needing assistance of the CPU. But I don't know.

No idea. It's a dinky looking little 1.8" that basically looks like a normal 2.5" cut roughly in half lengthwise. It has a cover on one end and just slots into the machine. What would I look at to find the type?

I'm looking to upgrade the hard drive on my 1 year old Dell Latitude. It would be cool to get a replacement that has free fall protection. Does my laptop need to support free fall technology, or will the feature be automatically enabled if the hard drive supports it?

Okay, cool. Forge, thanks for the information. Follow up questions for you, if you don't mind.

I am currently using a SATA 120GB 5400rpm 8MB cache drive. I would like to upgrade to a SATA 160GB 7200rpm 16MB cache drive. I really just want the faster spindle speed. Nike Air Force 1 High

Forge do you have the a ribbon drive? Replacement drives for my latitude xt (1.8 inch 5400rpm pata drives) are about $200.

Unless you drop your laptop a lot, I generally wouldn't worry about it.

and I cannot find a single vendor selling them.

32GB for 600$.

I wonder how well served the PATA upgrade market is going to be. A lot of them may be SATA only, unless somebody comes up with a really compact adapter. Though PATA hung on longer in the 1.8" market so maybe that will be ok.

Also, does anybody know when you'll be able to find the Seagate 7200.3 Momentous laptop hard drives on the market? NewEgg and everybody else only seems to carry the 7200.2 line. Does anybody know when you'll be able to find the Western Digital Scorpio laptop hard drives with free fall sensors? WD only sells the 320GB version on its website Air Force One Low On Foot

Yeah, but it's a very annoying 1 2 seconds where the whole machine is nigh unusable. I was on a train recently, and while the tiny jolts and bumps were barely noticable to me, they triggered APS several times a minute, even on the least sensitive setting. I turned it off.

Really hdaps was a temporary fix to hold us for the few years till SSDs become more widespread. As soon as I can find a 1.8" PATA SSD, my Thinkpad will have one. I just hope it isn't 32GB for 600$.
