There have been reports that the Seagate Backup Plus 4TB series may ship as a DX0001 or a DM0001. - This should be printed on the packaging, and on the enclosure itself.
DX is 7200 RPM and DM is 5900 RPM."
Can someone confirm that this is true? <--This is true. You can see from other threads that some people got the DX (like DarnCrazy) and few others getting the DM.
This drive has been on sale at various sites recently, and the DX model has been confirmed to be the Barracuda XT 7200RPM drive - see thread/pictures here: http://slickdeals.net/f/5861790-Seagate-4TB-USB-3-0-External-Hard-Drive-160?v=1&p=57731
