Is a 7200 rpm hdd much faster than a 5400 one?? They cost a lot more...is it really worth it??

An important point to remember also is if you have an existing 5400rpm drive and go out and buy a 7200rpm drive and hook the 5400 as a slave on the same cable as the 7200 master you will be slowing the performance of your 7200 as the slowest device on a bus determines the speed of the bus......fyi
