Nice find OP

This model WDBH2D0020HNC-NRSN has its RPM listed as "IntelliPower", which means 5400  RPM:   WDC specifications

Apparently only the older Blue "Mainstream" drives, 500GB and 1TB, are 7200 RPM, as shown at this WD web page that lets you choose between 5400 and 7200 RPM for these drives.  The 2TB and larger drives crossed out: link ​​​​​​​   

The cheapest new 2TB 7200 RPM drives I can find is a Toshiba DT01ACA200 for $62.99:: link.  This is an old Hitachi/HGST design, which is actually considered a good thing because BackBlaze has consistently found this brand to be the most reliable.  Another Toshiba is the P300, currently $69.99.  Both of these Toshibas are often offered for $59.99, delivered.  


BB reviews are stating it's a re-labeled Green drive (5,400): "Inside the box is a WD Green 5400 drive. All WD is doing is repackaging the cheap slow Green drives into "Mainstream" packaging."
