This is not comforting....mine is IC35L040AVER07-0 which someone said
it is the oem version, 3 months old. I actually think of getting a
Seagate to back up live data.
Heat doesn't seems to be too big of a problem when using a 2-3 fans
cartridge, easy to extract and dust the unit, too. It is running at
around 33-36C internal.
Shouldn't glass platter more inert to heat? How do they coat magnetic
material to glass?
