I am not an expert either but i will tell you everyone that specs data acq from
me wants the shocks to log in excess of 100 times per second so there must be
something going on... But then there is deal about data that is aquired at a
certain multiple of the signal too. If what you are saying is correct then there
is no downside either if it will never move too. But there maybe gains in the
begining of the run.
