From: icabod (icabod_at_impaktdevices.com)
Increasing the buffer time means setting the minimum amount of data in the buffer to a higher number. System memory is fixed, so a higher buffer time means the hard drive must spin-up more often to fill the buffer.
A lower buffer reduces battery consumption. A higher buffer reduces possible errors.
can you (or someone) be more specific?
do i understand correctly: longer buffer time means less battery
if that's true, my question remains... in what cases would someone want
