Yeah it is 5400rpm I wasn't 100% sure on that, although it is stated on the website by Fry's. Not sure why it wasn't within the manufacturer specification list on there as well though. Imho 5400rpm is great because I use these big drives as externals anyway, not needing the speed or noise.

True. I got it from the specifications from Fry's, but it's not in this post anywhere. Some people care about RPMs. In your case, lower is better. As a gamer who's going to install and run games, I'm looking for 7200 RPMs. Figured I'd save people a few seconds and just post it.

Sounds good, I'll stick it in there. Thanks.

SSD and NvMe prices are catching up with smaller phsyical sizes, these bricks still measured at 3.5" even without the shell. Blue drive, then it is a good deal compared to buying bare drives.
But not so hot when TB SSDs deals are popping up everyday.

I haven't had any problems with my caviar greens, but as of late I use them for their intended purpose and not as a boot drive. I used one as a boot drive before worked fine but not recommended.

I'm just curious of other people's opinion, would you ever buy a blue drive for an enterprise computer? I always went with black drives but my coworker bought a ton because of cost savings even though I don't think it's that drastic of a price difference. We were buying 1tb 7200rpm dives, not the 5400.

I had really bad luck with the blues but I may have gotten a bad batch back in the day.
