Default When did 7200RPM drives...

When did 7200RPM drives first starting to become common place in computers/store shelves? Were they available in 1995? 1997!?
What about drives with 8ms average seek time? Remember I'm talking about IDE drives and not SCSI drives...

i was pulling an 8 gig hard drive that was from 97-98 computer yesterday, it was about 55,000 RPM. I think the 7200s debuted in 2000-2001.
