    a coupla comments... firstly, most of those spec figures are pretty much meaningless, so it doesn't really make a lot of sense to post them with the deal...

    secondly, Western Digital did fess up a while back, and admit that the whole 'IntelliPower" thing was basically a marketing gimmick...

    basically each of the different Green Power models has a different FIXED spindle speed, and it can be more or less assumed these low end drives with the 8MB caches are actually 5400RPM...

    i should add that whilst not high performers, these are very cool and quiet drives...

    Mwave tend to do decent packing too...

    although the actual delivery process is always a bit of a lottery, no matter who you buy from...
