Fast and long lasting but not 40GB

Summary: I got this a few years ago (late 2008) and it is still working today. SMART data all indicates good and CrystalDiskInfo reported the hard drive had been in use for 25k hours which is almost 3 years continuous use or about 6 years of about 12 hours per day. The data transfer rate is pretty good on SATA 2 (300G). My only nitpick is that description indicated it is a 40GB hard drive but when I got it, it was 640 so I had to re-partition to get 40gb I wanted.
Summary: First attempt at putting together a PC. HDD was simplicity to install and OS installed easily. Have been running for 4 weeks with no problems .Compared to older system it is very quiet and there is very little discernible operating noise.
Summary: Mine was supplied by ADMI. It was dead on arrival and they have not even acknowledged the return let alone given a refund or replacement. The manufacture date on the drive was over 3 YEARS ago. Hard drives should never spend 3 years on a shelf.
Summary: Hi im thinking of getting this for my main drive to put my windows 7 pro on but just wondering if this HD is 7200rpm?. Im buying a new HD due mine is saying boot disc faild and it also making clicking sounds and im getting an app crash errors all the time :P. Just checking on the 7200rpm Thanks for any info.
