WOW

Farris R., Newegg
17 January 2014
  • Pros: okay, I was somewhat skeptical that the SSHD would perform on the level of an SSD as advertised, but I'm surprised to say it boots up Windows 7 quicker every time i turn the computer on. the beauty of the SSHD is not lost to advertising and cheap parts. it is a very well made and very impressive piece of hardware.
  • Cons: none thus far

Storage drive NO Gaming drive YES

TigerDirect.com
30 December 2013
  • Summary: The 8 gb of nand really make a difference in load times. This is a great drive to strictly put your most used apps on. I would say a conservative 25% boost in access times vs a traditional 7200 rpm drive.

Great buy, WORK GREAT!

TigerDirect.com
30 December 2013
  • Summary: Finally got around to buying one of the Hybrid drives after buying 3 SSD's. They WORK GREAT!! For all practical purposes it loads and performs as well as the SSD's. The advantage is the cost and size of the drive. I also am a gamer and I find that the games perform every bit as well on this Hybrid drive as they do on the SSD drive after the initial load of the game. There might be a very slight difference in loading time but I have not noticed it.

On new Win 8.1 machine, not so hot

TigerDirect.com
30 December 2013
  • Summary: I found that while I was installing my OS on this, and after, that the drive stayed for long periods of time pegged at 100% usage which basically brought my machine to a crawl. CPU usage was very low (below 10%) indicating that either the bus or the drive was the bottleneck. But, my machine is a top of the line Lenovo workstation with SATAIII, so seriously underperformed per my expectations.

excellent performance

TigerDirect.com
30 December 2013
  • Summary: While this drive may not have the specs of a good SSD, in the real world (biz apps, light gaming) it's tough to tell the difference. Boot and load time is virtually the same as a major brand SSD I'm also running from time to time. I really have to look to see which drive I'm booting from. Very pleased with the performance and value. Running 8.1 with an Asus Z87-a and Haswell cpu.

LOL shipped loose in the Box?what about the drive?

TigerDirect.com
30 December 2013
  • Summary: Some people are clueless about reviewing a product, the previous reviewer was appalled about the way the product was shipped and forgot to review the product it self, LOL did they forget to include the bubble wrap that's so much fun to pop? boo hoo.... here's a review that makes sense and you can trust, the hard drive is very very fast and for the premium price you'd pay for a ssd it's just not worth paying extra for the minute difference because this is extremely fast,...
