    It's 5400RPM. I'm not sure why you want a 7200RPM drive, but the rotational speed will only make a difference if you're going to install an operating system on the drive where you'll have lots of random access happening. If you simply want it for storage, the extra rotational speed won't make a difference. I have this drive and it's perfect, it's very fast for what it is.
