Excerpt: I had a limited budget, and an older computer, and decided to go this route rather than full SSD. I am amazed at the performance. Boot time is about the same, but applications seem to load about 10x faster. I am so glad I did this, my old workhorse seems new again.
Excerpt: bought this critter to create a new 64bit Windows 7 image for an old (about 8 years old) Dell Inspiron 1525 notebook... the old 32bit Vista was slow and old... the new image on this SSHD brings new life to the old beast. I have updated three computers with SSHDs in the past few months.
Excerpt: This is a replacement hard drive for my MacBook Pro since my previous failed on me. FYI for Apple buyers you have to remove the mounting screws from the old drive and put them on this one since Seagate does not provide them. Also mine simply came in a bubble wrap and a sealed packet.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy to use, High Capacity, Quiet
Summary: Very satisfied with the value of this product. The quality is first rate, the performance is everything they said it was too. This hard drive replaced my old 250GB, very well, and added more speed to my Satellite L355D laptop. Very good replacement, at an awesome price.
Summary: I have always had great luck with Seagate products. Upgraded my laptop using this drive and Seagate's software. Everything went smooth. Would recommend this product to anyone looking for value, quality and performance.
Excerpt: I have an old MacBook 2010 that I had alternatively Linux and MacOS running on. I bought it used, and quite for years its internal 500GB hard drive has been gaining bad sectors. Under Linux it wasn't a big deal to re-run an fsck, but MacOs wasn't that easily serviceable.

Excerpt: Sped up my laptop booting and daily usage by 50% and at the $ price was well-worth it compared to an SSD at more than 4x the price.I kept my original 500gb laptop drive in case this drive fails anytime soon.I'll try to remember to update this review in a few months.
Pros: Compact, Easy To Set Up, Easy to use, High Capacity, Quiet
Summary: I researched extensively before purchasing two of these 1 TB SSHD hard drives. This is the best price by far. The install was extremely easy and both machines recognized the new drives without any glitches.
