Good Drive, VERY Slightly Faster

T. Frink, Amazon
27 February 2014
  • Summary: It's a hard drive and 30 days later it hasn't failed. That's good, but nothing to write home about. As for the performance of the drive, most of the time it is identical to a regular 7200 RPM HDD with no SSD component. I believe this is probably due to the fact that the SSD component is sized too small to provide a more significant - and more persistent - performance boost.

Not for most

Jason, Amazon

  • Summary: Warning!!!! If you use Adobe or any other Graphic design program do not use this type of Hard Drive. You need to read Adobes forums on HDs and what they have found with even SSDs. This was one of the worst HDs I have ever used and wont be using a Seagate again, I am actually liking the longevity of my WD caviar blacks.

Best of both worlds!

Luis A. Delgado Garcia, Amazon

  • Summary: Noy as expensive as an SSD and having almost 85% of its speed, as long as they dont get cheaper, Hybrid disks are the perfect balance on speed and space. IF you have the money go for an SSD, if you need lots of space go for HDD. One tip: start making less space and moving your documents to the cloud as the future looks small in space in exchange of speed.

Ran fast while working, then data corruption

Mehdi Anis, Amazon
26 September 2013
  • Summary: I had bought 2 of them in Dec 2012. Used them as RAID0 under Win 2008 R2 Server. I ran multiple Virtual Machines. It ran fine until I got corrupted data and SeaTool confirmed drive-errors. Mid September 2013, returning to Seagate. They ran fast but died faster.

No difference in access speed

Bro'D, TigerDirect.com
31 August 2013
  • Summary: I originally purchased because of the reviews but after having for a year I see no difference in performance than a standard HDD. Bench marks showed no difference either. Would not recommend. But seeing that this item is sold out now guest it does not make much difference now. Bought two other one was dead out of package.

  • Summary: I installed this new hard drive into my macbook pro (early 2011) and it is now super fast! Will definitely order more seagate products in the future for personal computer upgrades.

Hybrid HD Works Great

Sean, rakuten
6 August 2013
  • Summary: This drive was purchased to replace an existing one in effort to: 1) increase performance; and 2) increase available disk space. After getting the image restored from the original drive and working with it for a week or so, the performance is noticeably better (and more disk space is available too, obviously). I prefer Seagate over other brands since I hardly have to return them compared to other brands (mostly WD). They're also quieter drives too.

Great budget price HDD for Macbook Pro.

Kevin, Amazon
22 July 2013
  • Summary: Could not a bit quicker and that is why it doesn't get a 5 star, but apart from that... this is a great budget priced HDD. Works perfectly in my Macbook Pro.
