Unreliable

Tyler P., Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Pros: Drive is fast, quiet, seems to run cool
  • Cons: Drive has performance limits. Cache is too small to make a huge difference. Drive has been unreliable, and Seagate unwilling to replace it without an error code from SeaTools.

Fast large drive for an iMac

  • Summary: Had an iMac that needed a drive replaced and opted for this one to give it a bit more space and speed as well. This has worked out as a great choice.

User Review

GregL, NCIX.com

  • Summary: My OS drive is an SSD, but I keep all my games installed on a separate mechanical drive which is what this is for. To that end, it works perfectly, no sacrificing space to squeeze my games onto an SSD, while still having some flash boost. Granted it's "normal" speed the first time data loads, but given the repetitious nature of accessing game data over a long play session, I think it works pretty well.
  • Pros: - Fast & quiet.
  • Cons: - Would have been nice to have more than 8GB of flash memory.

Boot time is great, performance no change

TigerDirect.com
23 November 2013
  • Summary: My boot time on a 1tb 7200rpm seagate used to be almost 4 minutes. Now it's 90 seconds so that make me very happy. Disappointed to know though that while booting time is vastly improved, overall performance is not. It just becomes a 7200rpm drive after boot. So if looking for overall performance increase, don't waste your money.

Lot faster than the normal hardrives!

TigerDirect.com
23 November 2013
  • Summary: I went from one minute and 40 seconds to 34 seconds boot time. Well worth the lower cost and still get the speed of a ssd drive. Would buy again and would also recommend others to buy.

No appreciable change!

TigerDirect.com
23 November 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this drive to replace my WD Cavier Green 1.5T drive. Did a clean install of WIN 7 64bit. I've noticed no appreciable change in boot time. Windows Experience Index with the WD drive was: 7.5, 7.5, 6.8, 6.8 and 5.9 for the WD drive, with the Seagate it's 7.5, 7.5, 6.8, 6.8 and 5.9! I wasn't expecting much but this is much less.

A nice little boost if you can't afford a full SSD

TigerDirect.com
13 November 2013
  • Summary: I have noticed an improvement in load times for startup, shut down and frequent apps. Everything else, you won't be too surprised but if you can't afford an SSD and want a little improvement, this is a great choice since the spindle speed is 7200 RPMs.
