What is the drive speed on this hard drive? I'm hoping it is 7200rpm but I know other Seagate products have been a disappointing 5900rpm.

    I was wondering about that myself, and fuond it strange that no one answered since june... I explored the Seagate website, but since could not find the answer there either I wrote to Seagate asking for that illusive detail.

    Here is what they wrote back:

    "The RPM listing for certain drives are the prerogative of the manufacturer.
    The Goflex desk for mac and the backup plus for mac fall under this category."

    In other words: Seagate rather keep this crucial info secrete! But were willing to let me know that : "The RPM for the 'Goflex home' is 7200RMP."

    In my mind that means Goflex desk and backup plus ARE NOT 7200RMP.

    And so I keep looking...
