For what it's worth, you might want to wait on this one for a little over 2.5 hours. Woot's momma Amazon is going to have a 3TB Seagate drive for 35% off as its 8:00 PST lightning deal.

I was in between buying one and not and darn woot comments convinced me to, argh! If it is indeed the 7200 version, I could use it for video editing as well. I have a Seagate 3TB internal and it is pretty fast, so if this one is comparable via USB 3.0 its worth the investment for the time it will eventually save me in rendering and moving video files.

I bought one of these last month from rakuten.com for my editing comp and so far it's been great as far as speed and sound goes.

this is 7200. 170 MB\sec typical. Quiet, too. I have one.

With external hard drives you hardly ever see how many rpms the drive is inside. I know with my video editing I need to make sure that it is at least 7200... is this a measurement thing of the past because of USB 3.0?
