[filmscanners] RE: HD failure [was RE: keeping the 16bit scans}



>> When any equipment is turned off is NOT subjected to any
>> external stresses,

Constantine seems to ignor the possibility that a turned off device can be
dropped among other things that, in my humble opinion, is certainly a source
of external stress. :-)  Unfortunately, returning to the main gist of the
argument, it is not the state of being "on" or being "off" that is
problematic as much as the process of TURNING the equipment "on" and "off"
that is the source of wear and tear, stress, etc. being referred to; but to
focusing on this factor as being the only or the main source of such wear
and tear, stress, etc. is to neglect that there are also other sources of
wear and tear, internal stress, etc. that may come from merely running the
equipment among other things and which come into significant play in the
real world practical use of the equipment.

Here I thought all these years that the problems stemmed from when
equipment is turned back ON, not when it's turned off.
