Summary: 120 GB SSD worked (I've loaded my OS and have been up and working since I first installed the unit) but the 1 TB HDD has never worked from right out of the box. Neither my system, nor their software recognize that its exists at all.
Summary: This drive sounds good on paper, but in practice it's a mess. If you can get it working out of the box, it's a pretty good experience. The OS cloning software they provide is decent, and they offer really simple and effective solutions to the transfer process.
Cons: SSD is great for OS and some games. The 1TB HDD is too slow for game data rates. They call it a WD black2. but in no sense does it have the 7200 rpm data rates like the real WD black does. kinda tricked me due to the fact it was on sale. Thought it was a bundle not a one piece deal. should have r...
Summary: Well, I think it's a brilliant idea, but it may not work for everyone. I bought this drive for a Gigabyte Brix Media Center PC. This unit has only one drive port, so it's either an SSD or HDD.
Summary: This drive is a great idea but is NOT very Mac compatible. Bought to replace my iMac HDD and installed it myself. The drive comes only with the 120gb SSD activated and the 1tb HDD is not visible.
Cons: They should of put a sticker on the box saying "If you format the SSD drive it will wipe the HDD" Lost alot of info when I formatted the SSD...Thanks..Never will I buy a Hybrid SSD/HDD drive ever again.

Summary: First week It was running good, Then started slow booting computer. Purchasing an SSD, my main concers was to improve the system booting speed. And Now after just over two weeks of usage, frequently a "beep" sound from the unit.
Hard to use the native MBR formatting. Windows 8.1 didn't like that when trying to install a windows/UNIX dual boot

Summary: Once I got it installed seems to be a good drive. Comes formatted with a MBR and I needed a GPT and had to install it in my rack mount computer to be able to reformat it to GPT before I could use it in my laptop.
