Disappointing Performance

The Masked Reviewer, Amazon
28 March 2014
  • Summary: Oddly enough this drive performs worse than a standard WD I used it to replace. I benchmarked it with a couple of benchmarks including Crystal Disk Mark. I needed the larger drive and it wasn't worth the hassle to return it so I kept it.

Good for specific uses with caveats

G. Venkatesh, Amazon
15 December 2012
  • Summary: This drive shines under the right conditions but not all. The ideal application for this is a laptop with (a) a single drive slot available (b) an SSD too expensive or unavailable for the storage requirements (c) use of a single operating system on the laptop by the same user all the time with...

Eeh, it is not all that

Ahmed, Amazon
23 October 2012
  • Summary: When I bought this SSHD I did not expect an SSD performance "even though seagate website claims that it has same performance as an SSD" but i was expecting more of a superior improvement from the 1TB 5400 RPM WD drive that I had but the improvement is technically minimal most of the time, this hard...

Hesitant from neg. reviews. Bought anyways. After some work, it now seems to function correctly

Josh, Amazon

  • Summary: I have been using this drive for about a month now, and just now today seem to have ironed out all the quirks and kinks. My first mistake was to assume that since this drive's been out for a while that all the negative reviews and accompanying solutions had already been implemented by Seagate.

Check model if your using a Mac

BiG t "Just some guy....", Amazon
22 April 2012
  • Summary: I bought this drive to replace the older 500gb model I had in my MacBook pro. Everything was fine for a few weeks then I started getting applications crashing at random. Safari at first then other apps, mail etc. this started to increase from once a week to every other hour or so.

Good while it lasted

gstboy "trying to be unbiased", Amazon
23 March 2012
  • Summary: The first one I received started to develop a click and chirp noise along with freezing my laptop basically from the moment I installed it. If it didn't chirp then it worked great. I didn't even have it as my boot drive just had a few gigs on it before it became virtually unusable.

Better than 7200 rpm but not comparable to SSD

Bang, Amazon
1 March 2012
  • Summary: See a big improvement when first installed but performance went down as time go on. Performance will not nearly be SSD. Better off to a SSD since the price is dropping now.

older tech: 4GB flash

blekenbleu, Amazon
10 December 2011
  • Summary: Seagate now sells hybrid drives with 8GB flash and 6Gb/s compared with 4GB flash and 3Gb/s for these. Search for ST750LX003. Faster SATA is of no value if not supported by the PC, but doubling solid state storage should help.

Great concept, but potentially buggy implementation - caution advised for Macbook users

Jonathan Evatt "Author, international lecture..., Amazon
12 July 2011
  • Summary: I have the 500GB version of this drive, on a 2010 MacbookPro 17" (MacbookPro6,1). When I bought it (about a week ago) I was looking forward to writing a positive review and posting the times I clocked for system boot-up, etc., before and after putting this drive in.
