Samsung SSD takes a three story plunge, survives to boot again

Advertised as being able to take abuse, Samsung put one of their SSD hard drives to the test by tossing one over the edge of a 3-story building. Landing with a giant bounce, they retrieved the hard drive, popped it into a laptop, and booted it, seemingly undamaged by its fall. Impressive there Samsung, but to really satisfy our craving for gadget abuse, we would have loved to have seen a spinning platter HDD subject to the same drop test. Care to film it again and show us how that would fare after taking a similar plunge? You know, something with drop detection…
