  • Summary: This SSHD seemed like a great idea to speed up my HP ENVY dv7. I did not realize I had a second internal drive bay (no connection wiring provided, of course)so I was doing an external USB clone. The Seagate software referred to does not work with USB connections - I asked them. I finally found EaseUS ToDO Backup FREE 6.5 which worked cleanly the first time. Be sure to turn off all non essential programs - AV especially!
  • Pros: Nice fast hard drive
  • Cons: Seagate software DOES NOT support USB cloning

  • Pros: Fast Connectivity

Good performance upgrade for 5400-RPM and PlayStation hard drives, almost as fast as 7200-RPM, but still slower than SSD drives.

  • Summary: இ Fuzzy Wuzzy's Summary: ѾѾѾѾ Recommended with warm fuzzies. փ Positives: փ This 5400-RPM drive that utilizes 8-GB SSD smart-caching is a great upgrade to replace an existing 5400-RPM or PlayStation drive, as long as you frequently access applications and data files repeatedly. փ This 5400-RPM drive can perform almost as fast as many 7200-RPM drives, but it still cannot match SSD drive speeds. փ This drive runs very quietly and can just barely be heard most of the time.

  • 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
  • Cons: Non-trivial Clone

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..
