Solved RPM vs Storage Tags: Hard Drives Cache Storage Seagate Last response: September 6, 2012 2:28 AM in Storage Share montosaurous August 26, 2012 5:03:57 AM So there are 2 $89.99 Seagate HDDs. One is 1TB, 7200 RPM. The other is 1.5TB, 5900 RPM. Both have matching statistic everywhere else, including 64MB cache. So should I opt for higher RPM or higher storage space?
