  • Summary: Works great, my laptop is faster and bigger. Only complaint is that cloning cable / software MUST be included for average end users, I had to get it elsewhere thus delaying my install by a week.
  • Pros: Bigger, Faster

SSHD definately a good buy

  • Summary: Being a hybrid drive I like the faster boot times and it is totally affordable for someone that cannot afford to purchase a full solid state drive that is a TB.

Nice HD

  • Excerpt: It doesn't seem to be a 5400RPM disk. Very fast and quiet. Used in place of the original hd on my new Asus N550JV. There's no way I could compare the two ! So far I'm very happy with the balance between cost and usability.

Works more reliably than the second gen SSHDs; decent enough value for the money

  • Summary: I'm using this with Win 7 Pro with XP mode. The previous generation had serious problems (system repeatedly froze). I think running XP mode wreaked havoc on it...a "real" SSD was also having problems with XP mode in Win 7. This drive looks worse on paper but works better in real life than the second generation Seagate SSHDs. The 5400 speed does not hit performance like I was expecting when I replaced a 7200 RPM platter drive. I did not do a fresh install..

  • Pros: I was a bit cautious going into using a solid state hybrid drive; I'd never used one before, but I've used plenty of SSDs and platter drives. This drive performed exceptionally well for what I was expecting, averaging decent read and write speeds on the platters. The maximum write speeds over USB 3.0 and SATA III were around 110 MB/s in both read and write, with an average speed of 89 MB/s.
  • Cons: This drive is advertised as "Boots and performs like an SSD" and "Faster than traditional HDD", however most speeds were on par with other 2.5" platter drives, even when loaded from the NAND portion of the drive. The platter of the drive peaks at around 110 MB/s read and write at the inner portions of the disk, and the NAND peaks at 111 MB/s. When compared to an actual SSD (Crucial C300), which reads at an average 228 MB/s, the sustained read/write speeds no longer se...
