Summary: Computer was slow to start up. Thought perhaps it was a virus of some sort after many other attempts to correct it. I was needing more hard drive space an decided on the Seagate Hybrid. For the extra it cost but not though a SSD I decided to take a chance for spending a bit more. It use to take up to a minute or even more to boot. The first time it went to boot it was already booted and web connectable in less then 4 to 5 seconds.
Summary: There were no problem installing the drive; all mounting holes and connections were industry-correct and that aspect was easy. I have run the drive for about three weeks and have been watching boot-up times to assess whether the hybrid feature actually reduces boot-up time. So far it's hard to tell much difference.

Summary: The boot speed and overall performance is unbelievable. You'll never want to go back to a standard drive. However, I've had a couple issues. My Dell Studio XPS does not always wake from sleep mode and I haven't been able to trace the root cause yet. Occasionally when I do a hard boot, my PC freezes I haven't been able to trace the root cause yet. I'm running Window 8. So I can't say if its Dell hardware, Microsoft or the new hybrid drive.
Summary: BEST FOR XP MACHINES. If you have an older XP machine that doesn't support all the functions of a true SSD, this is your answer. I used an older Pentium 4 2.xGhz machine for a business so it only boots xp and runs a few invoicing programs and a small app with a huge database (hence the need for the 1tb storage). Seems like the Seagate has cached the OS and the app files to it's 6GB cache. The system boots in under 1 min and apps launch instantly. Great buy!
Summary: bought this disk to replace my OS disk that died in my desktop computer. My wife's Dell laptop has a hybrid drive and I loved the insane startup time. So I gave this drive a try and I can say I am deeply impressed. Well done Seagate!!
Summary: if you have a slow pc buy a sshd if you dont have the money to buy a ssd then this is the drive for you i had a old hdd that was going to die on me any day and it was buy another hdd or try out a sshd and i would recommend a sshd to anyone if some one tells you there is no differnts between a hdd and a sshd then they are dead wrong
Summary: Had some problems migrating over to this hard drive, once I had them resolved (Thank you Seagate Support) I just love this drive. The numbers by the windows experience index do not show how much faster the drive feels. Though not a SSD this drive boots up nearly as fast as a ssd. Am glad I bought this drive, and would recommend it to everyone (who does not have the cash to get actual SSD's). Fast, love the speed. Big. Tech support from Seagate. Three year warranty.
