That is interesting info. So when it is not heat, what could be the reason they make those SSHDs in 5400 RPM and not 7200. I doubt it is cost because that is probably a very small difference.

Understand the battery problem. But a lot of those go into desktops or external enclosures. They should have a 7200RPM option for those.

Desktops aren't the target consumer for them and external enclosures have trouble getting enough USB power on USB 2.0 unless a Y cable is used (my notebook can't run a 7200rpm HDD on a single cable) and not all laptops have enough unused USB ports for that (I think you experienced that problem recently). Seagate went for what they feel is the largest target.

Looking at power specs for Seagate, WD and Toshiba 2.5" drives, the power requirement difference between 5400 and 7200 rpm drives is 0.03-/+ amps. That's about 6%, pretty insignificant.

The 2.5" while initially for LT's, they are very popular with with desk tops now. They are great in USB 3.0 enclosures. USB 3 supplies adequate power with the single cable connection, and has tremendously better transfer speeds compared to USB 2. USB 3.0 ports come in low-power and high-power variants, providing 150 mA and 900 mA respectively while simultaneously transmitting data at SuperSpeed rates.


Maybe not the BEST deal of the day.

Amazon Wants to Ship Your Package Before You Buy It - Digits - WSJ
I definitely will be interested to see how this will end up working out as well. but!. how can amazon know for sure 100% what a customer will want to order and be right most of the time. I somehow just dont see how it could work out in the end.
