OK, but you do not mention the main point of my post which is technical obsolescence of the HARD DISK!?
What is important about that, other than the difficulty of obtaining one? You're talking as if you understand engineering without demonstrating commensurate understanding. The HDR-FOX was designed to operate with the Seagate, so even if it is not up to modern spec, its "technical obsolescence" is also irrelevant.What is more important is that these drives are obsolescent and about to become obsolete.
If you can get one... get one (obsolete or not). If you can't, you'll have to take your chances with something else and volunteer to be the guinea pig.
That's just arrogant bollox. You're a newcomer here, so who are you to judge? You want to reach the wisest possible audience for your query, and it is not uncommon "we" skim-read new posts and don't want the extra overhead of working out what context "HD" is being used in. Why should we, when "HDD" resolves the issue?No, you were not unsuccessful in pointing in pointing out the differences between HD and HDD.
The thread is titled "Seagate Pipeline...." so I would assume 99% of readers would accept the abbreviation.
First time is excusable, second time suggests you can't be arsed.
