    Is anyone else bothered by the vibration of external HDD's and NAS's on shelves / etc?

    It bothers me a lot. I'm currently using some spare audiophile isolators to isolate the two NAS's and the accompanying external 3.5" HDDs (both are run in RAID1). However I would a) like to use those isolators elsewhere and b) like to know if there are any dedicated solutions to this issue.

    Anyone know if there are HDD isolation platforms out there? At effectively £320 per 4 'feet' the current audiophile-derived solution works but is not practical, and surely there must be something application specific.

    Try bubble wrap with some stiff card laying on top, with the drive(s) on top of the card. Not elegant but could probably be made to look OK.
