SSD and Magnets?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I was just wondering if SSDs are affected by magnets like HDDs. Basically I have a subwoofer (yes, it's magnetic) and I can't for the life of me find a spot for except next to the computer.

Are SSDs susceptible to data loss/damage through magnets?

Yay! biggrin.gif

Are there any other components in my computer that would be affected by magnets (ie: subwoofer)?

It could potentially introduce electromagentic interference, but doubtful that it'd be enough to cause instability, especially if the subwoofer's not close enough to be touching the case. But if you start getting random BSOD's while listening to loud music, you'll know why...
