Which brand hardisk is more vibration proof

I am trying to choose one for my design of portable instrument.

3 Solutions
The Plextor "shock proof" drive unit doesn't indicate which make/model of hard drive it uses => but the "shockproof" aspect of it is the mounting and damping characteristics of the enclosure -- NOT the drive itself.

In general, ANY notebook drive is designed to withstand vibration; so I'd use a 2.5" or 1.8" notebook drive for your instrument.   If you need exceptional resistance to vibration, you might want to consider using a solid state drive.
you can buy a solid state Hard disk for your instrument since  they are very stable at higher external vibrations and shocks... but Solid State HD's are much more expensive. Solid states are highly shock proof since it dont have any moving parts inside....
