"Western Digital Changes Its Reported Drive Speeds to Reflect Reality"


"Western Digital has made some changes to how it brands its WD Red Plus
hard drive family after taking heat for its decision to mislabel its
hard drive speeds earlier this year. At the time, individual customers
performed some rather clever acoustic analysis to confirm that the hard
drives Western Digital claimed were 5400 RPM drives were actually 7200
RPM drives."

How very strange to under represent your capabilities.
