Lightbulb HD Question - What is .10 in 7200.10rpm

I never really looked into it, but can someone please explain to me the benefits of having a 7200.10RPM hard drive rather than the 7200RPM alone? I understand it does perpindicular recording. But I dont really understand this. I know about the 7200.09 but .10?

Well thanks anyways, and ahead of time.

Default Re: HD Question - What is .10 in 7200.10rpm

Is it a Seagate hard drive? I notice Seagate has a lot of those 7200.6, .7, .8, .9, etc. The .10 suffix indicates this is the tenth generation drive resulting from ten years of research. The 7200.10 is the first ever to use 500GB and 750GB drives and as you have mentioned, use Perpendicular Technology. Here's what you are dealing with when it comes to the 7200.10 drives:

Highest capacity in a single drive - up to 750 GB of digital storage space.

The first 3.5" drive to support Vertically stored data bits, enabling industry leading capacity in existing standard form factors (perpendicular recording).
