Instead of having a set, uniform spindle speed the Caviar Green disks all have slightly different spindle speeds set somewhere between 5,400rpm and 7,200rpm during the manufacturing process. This is supposed to ensure that the drive runs at its optimal power-saving speed, but means you're never quite sure of what you're going to get in terms of performance.
