Excerpt: I just reinstalled my computer OS replacing nothing except my old standard SATA with this drive. And, it is noticeably faster. Not quite as fast as an SSD drive, but a lot faster than a standard hard drive.
Excerpt: I used for Mac OS and normaly ok but sometimes error happen. I don't know exactly but if I use normal drive or SSD drive than no problem but I use SSHD error happen. So I return this drive and change to Normal drive.
Summary: This hybrid hard drive cut my boot up time in Windows 8.1 64 bit in half. Have had it about 4 months and it doesn't miss a beat. I consider myself above average as to tech capabilities (built this desktop pc) but by no means am a guru.

Summary: This SSHD SATA drive has afforded me the pleasure of faster WINDOWS boot time as well as faster access to my plugins which previously took 1-minute and 44-secs to load, are now loading in less than 10-secs, sometimes as short as 4-secs. I cannot ask for more.
Summary: For gaming PCs, it's hard to justify switching completely over to a solid state drive. At the very least you'll need 500GB, and with even budget SSDs, you're gonna drop $200. Plus, since several modern games these days are pushing 50GB each, you'll go through that storage very quickly.
Not impressed, boot went from 5 minutes...to 5 minutes.

Summary: I installed this SSHD about a week ago in my main desktop PC (Win 7 Pro) in the hope of improving boot speed. During that interval I have made sure to boot a LOT, multiple times every day. I also use a stopwatch to see how far along it is at the various stages.
