      Cool. Thanks for sharing. :)

      Going from pictures I've seen and stuff I've read I think it must be the heads and not the disks that are vibrating, though.

        I have a fan next to my PC, could that be an issue ?
        But otherwise that was a really funny clip because the guy was SO EXCITED by what he found.

          Yeah, he was wasn't he!

          Did you hear the ambient fan noise in the room? Not a problem, noise 'spikes' seems to be what interferes the most.

          Makes me wonder about sound system bass units nearby though.

            How do you know the ambient noise wasn't a problem? Maybe it was a problem, but since it was "ambient" it was just considered normal, since you never got to see how the servers would function without it. After all you can't have a comparison without a baseline.
