Green Power drives spin around 5400rpm or so,

Also, and very importantly, this drive is not for RAID systems. To keep with the low-power design, Western Digital chose to automatically park the drive heads at times, which some RAID systems will see as a hard drive failure. So you could be in a constant RAID rebuild if the drives are mirrored, or if the drives are in RAID-5 for parity, you could lose all of your data. WD has acknowledged this, and released the RE4-GP 2TB hard drive for users who need big RAID arrays. They are really pricey though, so you may want to stick with a 1TB Caviar Black for your RAID solutions.
