this isnt innovation and is only for them to maximize their profits because many misinformed people buy this stuff simply from seeing fancy art and marketing buzz words on the package
just because your preference is elsewhere, does not mean the product is flawed.
Also, just because your knowledge is flawed, does not make this product flawed.
"up to 125 MB/s read and 100 MB/s write speeds" - only the latest drives (1TB+) offer similar speeds - and only on the outer edges of the platters. they all dip below 75MB/s write, so in fact - there are no mechanical hard drives as fast as this.
There is also access times to consider, power draw, heat, noise, and the fact this is 2.5" and not 3.5". Find me a 2.5" drive with this performance, and i'll praise you as the lord and saviour.
