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.
Pros: Easy installation: Installed one in a fat PS3 to replace an 80GB and a second HDD in a PS3 slim to replace a 120GB.
Cons: Normal price is comparable to larger capacity HDDs. PS3 users who want to store large amounts of media directly on the internal drive and do not see value in performance gains may want to look towards 5400 RPM drives with 750GB or 1TB.
Summary: Made a BIG difference in my 3 year old duel core laptop. before I had just a regular 5400 rpm hard drive. putting this hybrid drive in made a big difference. boot time is almost 2 seconds faster. games load faster and run smoother. I do recommend this hard drive.
Summary: I have used Seagate drives for MANY YEARS in my own and customers machines without any problems. You can buy cheaper drives BUT Seagate has always done me right and served me well. BTW, this drive is twice as fast as my other Seagate 320Gig 7200 RPM drive, it is now a USB external storage drive.
Summary: This drive installed great and I like Seagate drives only drives I use MY only thought is the Sata II all my computers running AMD 900 series chipset so this drive seems lost with my SataIII drives even though boot times good no where as good as my crucial Sata III solid state drive but this drive still rocks when seagate can have a 2.5 Sata III drive with 12 gigs of sd memory then they will have a very awesome drive but still buy one your boot times will increas
