Summary: Disappointingly slow compared to my previous SSD drive. I didn't expect the same performance but did expect better than I am getting. I feel I might as well have saved my money and just purchased a std drive.
Summary: I don't write product reviews, but I'm making a notable exception in this case. The Seagate SSD Hybrid 4TB is five star across the board. Performance is notably faster than the standard 7200, and I use it for storing and editing video files.With this product you get quality, economy and performance.
Excerpt: I use a solid state drive for my C: \ and this Seagate is D: \ and on it are all of my DAW files and media (audio, video, TV). Remember that Windows cannot use drives larger than 2TB with MBR and cannot boot off GUID (what you will need to make these monsters).
Pros: Easy To Install, Fast, Highly Compatible, Quiet, Reliable
Summary: This drive is flawed. I did a clean install of Windows 7 on the drive, and within 3 days the disk image was corrupted and the system wouldn't boot. I formatted the drive and did another clean install, and again within 3 days the disk image was corrupted and the system wouldn't boot.
Excerpt: Speed like a Solid state & priced like a HDD & amazing capacity Im getting another one...Thank you B & H for recommendation. It saved my crashing computer by being able to keep up with today's Large demanding Media.
