“I use 5400rpms and have not had any problems.”

Okay but seriously. When it comes to video editing, the faster the better. Your drives are writing a very large amount of data every second. you want the fastest drive you can get. unfortunately the 10,000 rpm drives are really expensive so most of us have to deal with the 7200.

Honestly, I didn’t even know they made SATA 5400 rpm drives. That kind of defeats the purpose, as SATA is a faster bus. When it gets the point where it writes the data, it will bottleneck and slow back down.

You might want to check those specs again. it might just be ATA or PATA.

I honestly don’t think they make a 5400 SATA drive.
