I've got a 1GB IBM Microdrive in a digital camera that has been around the
world, taken over 75,000 pictures and that's over five years old, still no
bad sectors. A bit of slowcoach compared to SanDisk UltraIII CF cards, but
the old snapper sits in the glovebox of the car (temps between -10C and
45C), sweet as a nut still.
