    According to the data sheet for these drives from the G-Technology website, yes the 3TB drives are 5400RPM.

    1TB = 7200RPM
    2TB = 5400RPM
    3TB = 5400RPM

  • Yes. The 2TB version has a 5200 RPM drive. Apple doesn't sell the 7200 RPM version of this drive anymore. For 7200 RPM, can get the USB-C 1TB G-drive. It comes with a USB-C to USB-A cable to let you plug in to older (USB 1-3) ports.
