So after LLann linked that video with the server guy yelling at harddrives tanking their performance.

Tp4 tested just writing to an external, w/ regular music going on the Subwoofer

The write speed went down to 150-160MB/s from 165-170MB/s

Vibrations bad for drives, this is why alot of cases and laptops have rubber isolator pads to reduce this when mounted.
