Seagate Momentus XT 750GB ST750LX003 2.5″ Storage Drive Review

Hardware BBQ
2 October 2012
  • Conclusion: You are getting 2 years warranty period in this drive. If you are looking something as a replacement for your 5400RPM drive on your notebook and want more than 500Gigs of storage space with some advantage on the load times? Provided it uses SATA 6Gb/s, this is a good drive to shortlist.

  • Summary: The Momentus XT is for gamers that don’t have room for an SSD and a regular drive or can’t afford a large capacity SSD. At about $180 at time of writing, it’s not much more expensive than a regular 2.5″ 7200 RPM drive of the same size.

Hardware Secrets
28 February 2012
  • Summary: The second-generation Momentus XT performs much better than the first-generation model, even when the caching system isn’t used. In our tests, the performance advantage of the second-generation drive was between 17% and 100% over the first-generation drive in this scenario, depending on the test.

Momentus XT Hybrid Drive Review

Maclife
9 January 2012
  • Conclusion: The Momentus XT is a hybrid in the best possible sense. You get the capacity of a traditional disk, along with (some of) the speed of an SSD, without breaking the bank.
  • Pros: Flash memory means faster speeds. Drive adapts to your usage.
  • Cons: Moving parts means it’s still susceptible to damage, just like your regular drive. Speeds up boot times, but transferring files is pretty much the same as traditional drives. Higher cost-per-gigabyte.

Seagate Momentus XT hybrid drive review

  • Conclusion: If you have the extra money to spend, this drive is definitely one of the fastest mechanical disks that we’ve ever tested. It would be a significant upgrade to a laptop that has a 7200rpm HDD in it, and a mind-blowing upgrade for a laptop that is saddled with a 5400rpm HDD.
