    I currently have a 120GB which I find a bit small when running Vista and Leopard using Boot Camp. So I decided to upgrade to something above 200GB. I found this HD from Hitachi ( the Travelstar series ). It's a good price, so I'm wondering if I upgrade, will the motion sensor still work? Anyone have this HD in particular? Is it a good quality and build?

    I believe the motion sensor activation simply stops the drive access, so it's not drive-dependent.

    I've been wondering about this, too. It will be the deciding factor when choosing between this drive or this one. But since their prices will only be about €5 apart, it would be foolish to choose the latter one, only to find out later that the motion sensor isn't drive independent.

    Can't comment on this drive in particular, but Hitachi makes quality drives, for sure. Don't see why this one would be any different.
