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.

  • Conclusion: IMPORTANT: Although the rating and final score mentioned in this conclusion are made to be as objective as possible, please be advised that every author perceives these factors differently at various points in time. While we each do our best to ensure that all aspects of the product are considered, there are often times unforeseen market conditions and manufacturer changes which occur after publication that could render our rating obsolete.
  • Pros: All-in-one Hybrid storage solution does not require software, Outperforms PCI-Express hybrid solutions in boot and file transfers, Seagate Adaptive Memory tech buffers data for SSD responsiveness, 5-Year full Seagate product warranty, Large 750GB hybrid storage capacity, Extremely high HDD operational shock durability, Supports Native Command Queuing and SMART, SSD Failure does not effect preserved HDD data, 3rd-Generation SATA 6Gb/s compliant
  • Cons: Lacks comparable IOPS operational performance to SSDs, Expensive hybrid storage solution (post-facility flooding), Hard disk would benefit from 64MB DRAM buffer

Seagate's Momentus XT hard drive adds flash storage to increase speed significantly over a standard hard drive; but it can't quite match an SSD

Good Gear Guide.au
29 July 2011
  • Summary: Seagate's Momentus XT hybrid drive delivers zippy performance that falls between a standard hard drive and an SSD, without much added cost.
  • Pros: A far more reasonably priced option than an SSD (though Australian pricing is yet to be confirmed), improved performance over standard hard drives
  • Cons: If you buy it in the US at the moment you'll be looking at a price premium of up to 30 percent compared to a standard hard drive

Seagate’s newest hybrid hard drive is a legitimate alternative to an SSD at a much lower cost

Good Gear Guide.au
29 July 2011
  • Summary: Seagate’s latest iteraton of its hybrid hard drive combines 8GB of super-fast flash memory with a traditional spinning hard drive, allowing excellent read speeds for commonly accessed hard drive data like boot files. It’s only a small amount more expensive than a normal laptop hard drive with no disadvantages.
  • Pros: Good speeds, especially cached data, Low price per gigabyte versus SSDs
  • Cons: Advantage tapers off with large amounts of random reads, More expensive than previous Momentus XT generation, High price
