Portable Drive Protection

Hi there,

I’d like to ask a general question about the build quality of portable drives. My own drives get the odd knock now and again and I am wondering how robust the drives are?

Can the optic assembly take a knock or two before going out of alignment?

Do portable drives have some sort of damped or spring suspension or something?

I’m just curious because I would have thought something like that would have been included in a machine that regularly got moved around.

Kind Regards

Hi and Welcome!

portable optical drives are in no way more solid than others. I have the impression, they are even less solid.
