I'm guessing that you are referring to hdd with those speed, but it would be nice to know what specifically you are referring to.

Once again, what kind of SATA drive are you referring to?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

The extra rotational speed decreases access time. However, contrary to popular belief, it does not increase throughput. The higher densities of the 7.2krpm disks make up for thier slower rotation, though the rotational delay increases the time it takes to get an individual block.

Useful charts are here:

Have a nice day,
