WD WD Again obsfucates its drives

Holy Schmoly... WD Red Drives rated at 5400 rpm are actually 7200 rpm drives !!!
"Within the WD Red Plus family, we are changing model numbers of select drives (8-14TB HDDs). This is to provide greater clarity for customers as we update materials and Device IDs to reflect the actual spindle motor speed (RPM) of the product as reported by the firmware. For these WD Red Plus HDDs, there is no change in firmware and drive performance. It is essentially the same drive. No other WD Red, WD Red Plus or WD Red Pro model numbers are changing. For power, acoustics and data transfer rate specs, please continue to refer to the current data sheets as the products are tested to meet the specifications documented."
