Hard disk drive magnets make similarly insane beer box magnets, but if you clunk one onto the fridge, you'll probably have to slide it to the edge to get it off. (Watch your fingers - pinch hazards exist with these...)
True, stepper servo magnets are really strong. Must give high torque with little electric power. So far managed to ruin a watch and cell phone, and pinch a nice 4 cm tear on my palm.
