---------------------
Heat is an important consideration, especially in
24/7 service.  Be sure there's adequate airflow for
cooling.  

Although not stated, if this will be used in a 
notebook, it is much more important, especially 
air flow underneath the case where the HD usually 
resides and the heat build-up is highest.  A simple 
solution is to fabricate a small frame of 1x2 furring 
strips (or anything) to elevate the case and provide 
air circulation underneath.
