are there any performance issues associated with a 5400 rpm hard drive?
Posted on 2014-03-28
Hello and Good Morning Everyone,
Recently, I have purchased an Acer Aspire laptop (Model V3-731-4473) with many nice features. There is one component, namely the hard drive, that I do have a question about. The hard drive's speed is 5400 rpm which I am wondering if it might be a bit too slow when carrying out certain operations such a backing up data to a DVD burner. The unit itself does comes with an integrated burner which records CD +/- R's at 24x, DVD +/- R's at 8x, and DVD +/-R DL at 6x. It has a rewrite speed of 16x for CD's, 6x for DVD-RW, and 8x for DVD+RW. With this being said, I am under the impression the hard drive should be fast enough to carry out data backup operations to recordable media such as CD-R's and DVD-R's.
I have not actually started using this laptop yet, so, I do not have anything personally to comment on regarding its performance. At this point, I am merely attempting to gain information so I know what to expect from it.
Thanks in advance for any feedback given to my question. I will look forward to reading what everybody has to say regarding performance issues, if any, that are associated with 5400 rpm hard drives.
