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.

Noticablely faster than my old Hitachi 500GB

Michael G., Newegg
20 November 2013
  • Summary: If you can get the drive on sale for under $70 like I did, than it is well worth the investment, however any higher and I would've gone to a new drive vs. this recertified one.
  • Pros: The small bit of flash memory integrated into this drive greatly decreased my windows boot time. Also my two most used programs(Aurora and Outlook) load faster. A SMART check shows that there are no issues with the drive even after a month of ownership. I got this thing on sale here for a stupidly low price, and couldn't be happier.
  • Cons: None thus far, however it is a refurbished drive so I'm always nervous about it failing.

  • 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.

a good drive, value for the money but check the model numbers as,...

M. Nichols, Amazon
1 May 2013
  • Summary: the seagate is an excellent hybrid sata drive no complaints whatsoever BUT check the model numbers as the first gen and second differ substantially in regards to performance. the first gen is an excellent model came out in 2010, has the exact same name as the second gen more recent version. the newer model is upgraded in several important areas. check the model numbers first if it matters to you and compare to what is on the manufacturer's site.

Works great

neeZy, Amazon
29 March 2013
  • Summary: Using it on a Dell M4500 running Linux (Fedora 18) and it runs great. Sometimes when writing large files the OS seems to hang up while it is processing the write, but that could be to do with the Linux compatibility not the drive itself.

Fantastic drive but requires a little elbow grease to work perfectly

nycebo, Amazon
23 October 2012
  • Summary: I just received this Seagate Momentus XT 750GB drive and installed it in my 3 year old Sony Vaio laptop. I used Acronis to clone my old 320GB drive and then placed it into the laptop. It started up perfectly and I was off and running...or so I thought. The one (two to be precise) problem that I had was with Windows Update and Microsoft Security Essentials. Both programs were unable to update from the web.

Large Capacity External Storage in a Physically Small Package

William W. Gorman Jr., Amazon
10 October 2012
  • Summary: This product provide a quick compact large capacity (2 TB) storage with just a USB connection----no power supply needed. Seagate supplies some extra programs for backup if you don't have other software already on-hand (I use existing programs). Transfer of data is fast and there is little power drain from battery operated laptops.

Didn't notice much performance difference.

,, TigerDirect.com
3 October 2012
  • Summary: Using usual benchmarks, didn't notice much performance change, even compared to the previously installed 5400 drive. Has been consistent over the past three months, and I had no issues with installation or configuration for Windows use.

Not Quite SSD Speed

D, TigerDirect.com
8 July 2012
  • Summary: Using Vista on a Lenovo Y710,with dual drive setup, with a crucial ssd as a boot drive. It worked for 8 months and then crashed, replaced both drives with just this one. Although it is not as fast,it has more storage space.We'll see about reliability.
