Either way I just had to process a return at newegg because of this and I did see at least one other Newegg reviewer who complained of the same issue. The Newegg description lists 7200rpm, the box I received even said on 16mb cache. Yet the drive inside was Green Drive with 8mb cache..
The GF1000EU is 7200 rpm and 16MB cache, not to be confused with the Fantom Green which is only 5400 rpm. The specs meet Charter's minimums.
After further researching this drive, it may not be what it is advertised. Interestingly, the Fantom website doesn't list the RPMs in the specs. Some are speculating that they are refurb drives.
I'll wait until further reviews of hard drives before jumping in.
