I had thought that the Sky's operating system didn't like drives with a spin
speed of over 5400rpm as it throws a wobbler due to it taking too long to
get up to speed?

On average the spin up time does take longer if the RPM increases. However
you can get EXPENSIVE drives that are 15,000RPM that have spin up times
lower than some 5400 drives!

Spin up speed is just one of the factors that stops some drives from working
properly!

Don't they get really fantastically hot, though?

Not a good quality in a Sky+ drive. :-)
