Talk Tech News got a reaction from Marc in 5400 vs 7200 rpm hard drives, which ones last longer?
I am not sure that 5400 and 7400 can be compared so easily. For example, someone said that 5400 will use less elctricity. Will it? Surely the 7400 are more effeicient and therefore use less electricity. Although hard drives can last a very long time, people should get into a habbit of backing up their data with the anticipation of failure. This is one time that pessimism is good!
