More chance of failure, I can agree. Not sure how it will be slow as 7200RPM is faster than 5400RPM, not just in RPM.
slow in moving data but faster in loading apps/games.do you still recommend 7200 over 5400(i am ok with slower moving data but not sure what exactly mean by HDD failure)?any recommendation of 5400?

I have used a 7200RPM HDD on a friend's PC, it seemed more responsive, hence I suggested it. Get any WD or Seagate model.

after few more search,It is really confusing because so many people are mentioning lifespan of 5400 is better then 7600.Now the thing i dont understand what is the average lifespan generally we get with hDDs?any specific numbers.

DONE THE ORDER FROM PRIMEABGB & I ORDERED WD 7200RPM 2TB HDD.
Hope it will be worth it.
Special Thank you @omega44-xt this time for suggesting & sharing the best suggestions.

My Toshiba HDD from 2010 is still going on with no problems. I bought one external 1 TB seagate drive in 2014 and it is also working. Both are 5400rpm and have no bad sectors.

I don't think 7200rpm will go bad at least before 5 years if abused badly.

I doubt normal users abuse HDDs much, but I have seen many HDDs in laptops from 2013-14 starting to fail in 2020 (friend's laptops). See how it goes, it usually doesn't go kaput at once.

Hmm... That Toshiba one was actually used everyday for 2-3Hours. Maybe it was lucky to not get destroyed :p

I have an 5400 RPM SATA HDD from my old HP Pavilion G6- 2301AX made by Hitachi that I use as an external HDD. Works like a charm till date.
