"Wastes just as much time as it saves"

ArcticShivers, CNET
14 April 2011
  • Pros: Loads a few programs about 10% faster than normal, boots up faster than normal (with the caveat below.)
  • Cons: Everything else takes twice as long to load since the HDD spins at a medium-slow rate. It will randomly stop accepting input as it shuffles data between the HDD and SSD. It does this for about 20 seconds, about two minutes after booting up, *every single

"Meh... BUT...."

haldor42, CNET
28 July 2010
  • Pros: I have found mixed reviews about this hybrid drive... Some say it ROCKS! Most others, not so much... Other than the added disk space on my Dell Mini 10v, I can't say much else... The drive does work, but....
  • Cons: Some vibration, perhaps due to the 7200rpm HDD. No noticeable performance improvement.

Great - till it failed :(

Steve of London, Amazon
23 November 2013
  • Summary: I bought this drive in April 2013 to replace the failing original (Hitachi) drive in my HP laptop. It was considerably faster than the original, as well as larger. However, it has failed quite spectacularly over a three-day period with bad sectors and messed-up file indexes all over the place (CHKDSK went bananas!) and is now unuseable. But - I called Amazon this morning and they are refunding me for the item once I send it back! So the drive - not so good.

Seagate Momentus XT 500GB Solid State Hybrid SATA Drive 2.5IN

Cocheta, pricebat.ca

  • Excerpt: Speed improve as advertised, ***if*** you don't use that quite a few apps all the time often. If like me, you use a lot of apps all the time, all with equal regularity, then the 4gb is really not adequate to hold them all (causing the cache to keep finding refreshed), and you are back to a normal drive. Seagate is possessing a lot of difficulty acquiring the firmware right.

Seagate Momentus XT 500GB Solid State Hybrid SATA Drive 2.5IN

Paris, pricebat.ca

  • Excerpt: Lightning rapidly. Really. Runs hot, runs all the time, vibrates and drains battery. I was shopping for an SSD and someone showed me a chart with hybrid vs. SDD and the distinction was minimal. I was sold.The efficiency is there, no doubt about it, but it appears my MacBook doesn't want to spin this drive down.

Seagate Momentus XT 500GB Solid State Hybrid SATA Drive 2.5IN

Marlene, pricebat.ca

  • Excerpt: Operates fine reasonably quick.Considerably much better than 5400 rpm drives. Had an additional 7200 rpm drive and to be truthful this one particular is no faster or greater. Not worth the Hype. This drive is generally a very good drive but for the funds I would not get yet again. I would use a WD Black drive it is just as fast and a lot far more reasonably priced.

Seagate Momentus XT 500GB Solid State Hybrid SATA Drive 2.5IN

Raziya, pricebat.ca

  • Excerpt: Rapidly! big amount of storage for 9.5mm VIBRATION! this thing is quickly for certain, but wow does it have a ton of vibration. installed it on my MBP and was Consistently feeling the vibration below my wrists. exchanged it for yet another one particular - very same thing happened! I think it may well be simply because its difficult to get 750gb in 9.5mm (the disks ought to be larger, and so on).
