Samsung D7000 PVR

I want to get a large USB drive (2TB at least) for my new D7000 Smart TV. The TV manual says "We recommend using a USB HDD with at least 5,400 rpm, but a USB HDD of RAID type is not supported.".
Nowhere can I find the spin speeds of the common USB drives in the shops, nor whether they are RAID or not. They aren't on the boxes, nor is this information is to be found on Seagate's web site (for example).

Please can someone point me to where to find this information and/or suggest a suitable drive. Thanks.

maybe the Hard drives forum may have been a better place for your post, Hard Disk Drives and Solid State Drives | - UK Online anyway to try and answer your question, most hard drives should at least run at 5,400 and above or more typically 7,200. Raid is a way of linking two or more disks for redundancy, normally used in servers, there is a bit more to it but that shouldn't worry you with what you propose doing, a good read, that should answer your question in more detail is this wiki page here:
