    for anyone who cares, or needs to know, these are actually 5400RPM drives, and performance wise at the slow end of the WD Green spectrum...

    performance-wise WD drives go like this Green < Blue < Black, and of the various Greens, these are the slowest...

    and there is no such thing as a hard drive that can dynamically alter its rotational speed during operation, that's a marketing myth that WD have created...

    on the positive side they are cool and quiet (unless you get a dodgy one), so good for a HTPC or backups perhaps...
