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
14 February 2014
  • 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
9 February 2014
  • 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.

Awesome buy

Aaron G., Newegg
13 January 2014
  • Pros: Got it on discount. Works like new. Boots fast.
  • Cons: I was somewhat afraid to purchase a refurbished HDD in the event something got messed up and was unnoticed i didn't want to deal with the return process, but I could not beat the price. Works great thus far.

Not compatible with PS4

Alan H., Newegg
12 December 2013
  • Summary: By no fault of Seagate, this drive will not work with the PS4. Other than that, this is a great drive at an absolutely fantastic price.
  • Pros: Price!
  • Cons: NOT compatible with the Sony Playstation 4. Do not buy this drive if you are planning on putting it in a PS4. I have tried for hours and it will not work. Other drives I own work fine.

Better Deal Than I Expected

ERNESTO N., Newegg
30 October 2013
  • Summary: When I compare this SSHD rated at 7200 rpm with my other SSHD rated at 5400 rpm I could not detect any difference. Just my observation and not a scientific or lab-based comparison.
  • Pros: Somewhat leery about buying a refurb drive because I've been burnt before. So far, not on this one. I bought this at Newegg when there was add'l discount and free-shipping. Installed it on a Dell Latitude E4300 and loaded Windows 8.1 64-bit. I was able to configure AHCI on setup and Windows recognized it as a new drive. The old drive was an older SATA 7200 rpm and configured as IDE. The speed gained and overall performance was impressive. And with 500GB the increased ...
  • Cons: It's a refurb product and makes me uneasy about it. But more of a peace of mind factor that anything else.
