Re: What is StrikeZone™ technology and hard drive cushioning
I would imagine it is a type of passive isolation system to suppress vibration if the notebook is dropped. Typically this is done through some sort of dampening material. The advantages of it are that if you drop your notebook, you should protect your HD from shock, and from scratching the platters. I am sure Dell has some kind of study on the technology. There has to be papers somewhere about what type of impact it is rated to sustain. I would just try to google it.Custom Built Desktop

Re: What is StrikeZone™ technology and hard drive cushioningthe specialized hard drive is constructed with special dampening material inside the drive enclosure that can help provide up to a 145 percent increase in shock protection(b). This additional shock resistance supplements the protective capabilities provided by Dell's Strike Zone technology. Strike Zone is a standard feature on most Dell mobile platforms that helps protect hard drives from everyday bumps and bounces. Customers who value a hard drive capable of withstanding more rigorous handling include the military, emergency services, government, law enforcement, energy exploration and education.Latitude D410. 6 years old notebook that did not have a built-in optical drive when built.
