    Can you really tell any difference, besides the price?

    Yes. The 10,000 RPM WD Raptor SATA HD performs significantly better than any of
    the 7200 RPM SATA drives.

    I have (and still) run 10K RPM SATA and SCSI drives. I won't go back.

    I'd love to go from my 10,000rpm drive to a 72,000rpm one! :)

    72,000 RPM HDs don't yet exist; but if they did, they'd be fast!

    Hey, I got it, even if the rest of them didn't.

    I run 15K SCSI drives. They're a lot quieter than the 10K drives I used to run
    but I think I could cook breakfast on them....
    It's also possible that my 10K drives were older generation tech.

    Definitely there is a difference. The 10,000 rpm can read the sectors
    faster than the 7200 rpm drive, although usually with more noise. The
    10,000 rpm is the better choice for database servers. With a larger
    buffer cache, a slow drive can have a good boost in performance.
