Does anyone use laptop HDs for video or audio storage? Not to use them as a workhorse for capturing video/audio or working with them via a program, but to use them to store your projects on. You could get a 30 GB 5400 laptop HD and a 2.5" external USB2.0 enclosure for around 90-100 bucks. Might be a bit expensive; but for portability reasons (no external power supply); I think this is great. Its just the question of the HD being reliable... any thoughts?
