Will a 7200 rpm hard drive improve PS4 performance?

I’m planning on getting a new hard drive from my PS4 (the original 500GB drive is just too small). I don’t want to spend the money it would take to buy a SSD, but I can get a 7200rpm HDD for only a little more than a 5400rpm HDD. Will it make a noticeable difference in performance? Are there any drawbacks to using a 7200 rpm hard drive in a PS4?
7200 would make it faster, the only potential drawback would be that it would run a bit hotter. The increase in heat is very minimal, so if your PS4 is not cramped up in a tiny space, is clean and had a normal airflow you shouldn't have any issues.
