Rockbox mail archiveSubject: Re: Hitachi vs Toshiba
From: planet77 (planet77_at_gmx.net)
Sorry for the last mail...
I have purchased my Jukebox Recorder 20 just 2 weeks ago and it has also the HITACHI inside. Perhaps it just depends on where it is build?? I don't know, but is unplausible that they change the HD in that short time I think.

I just purchased (from Buy.com) another Recorder 20 as a gift for my sister. Unlike my Recorder 20, this new one uses a Toshiba MK2018GAS. My recorder uses a Hitachi DK23DA-20.
I noticed that the Toshiba makes much more noise (a click) than my Hitachi. Not so much more noise-- but if I hold it in my hand I can feel it slightly move and bump when it starts up, and also when it is searching the disk.
Has anyone had similar experiences? Should I be concerned? Thanks! --C
