Categories > All Laptop Hard Drives > Seagate > Seagate Hybrid Drives ST1000LM014 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 2.5" Laptop SSHD -Bare Drive

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 PS4 Drive Replacement
Pros: Cheap
Fast
Quiet

Purchased this for a PS4 drive replacement. I was getting low on space and after some research this drive showed up as a recommended swap.

Overall I'm happy with the performance. Games where you die a lot and have long loading times between deaths (*cough, Bloodborne) are much less frustrating to play now. Boot up time and apps like Netflix or Spotify load faster etc.
Cons: Thick? (I wouldn't use in slim laptops, think it's 9.5mm which is too thick).

The time it took to backup my original 500GB drive and restore to the new Seagate was a real pain. Takes a good day to get this done. Of course this is not fault of the drive but I wasn't about to lose PT ;D
Other Thoughts: I understand Sony will be releasing an updated PS4 model with a 1TB drive but for anyone who owns the original PS4 this hybrid drive swap will make using your old PS4 much better.

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 Drive Died During Testing
Pros: Small, cleanly designed component, clearly labeled. Attractive design.
Cons: This hard drive died within 36 hours of its initial power-up. I was testing the drive with basic file-copy operations one evening and found the drive dead the next morning . BIOS still sees the drive but it is no longer bootable or readable as a secondary drive.
Other Thoughts: Initial testing showed that this drive compared pretty well in terms of speed to its full-sized desktop counterpart, in spite of its slower spindle speed.

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 So far so good
Pros: Refurb but SMART shows barely 1 day of on-time and no errors. Benchmarks significantly faster than my old stock Toshiba laptop HDD. Good price for 1gb and dropped $16 for 2 year warranty so no worries there. Quiet.
Cons: None that I've seen yet

Categories > All Laptop Hard Drives > Western Digital > Western Digital Scorpio Black WD3200BEKT 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Notebook Hard Drive Bare Drive

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 Still kicking
Pros: Currently has a power on hour count of 39,799 hours. That's just over 4.5 years of spinning.
Cons: Has been clicking for probably 3 years now
Other Thoughts: DESPITE the clicking. It hasn't dropped a single corrupt file in my lap. The thing just keeps on ticking (hehe).

Would I recommend? No, it's an older drive that has been replaced with newer better technology. But it still stands to be reviewed so many years later.

Bought this six years ago in '09

Categories > All Laptop Hard Drives > Western Digital > WD Blue WD3200LPVX 320GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Notebook Hard Drive Bare Drive

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5
Pros: OK what would you like to hear? This HD works & spin's like it is suppose to. Spin is 5400 RPM, some people complain about the slower rate of data transfer compared to a 3.5 HD that spins at 7200 RPM. Not that noticeable to me. You can always get a 2.5 WD drive that spins at 10,000 RPM or invest in an enterprise-grade 15,000 RPM SAS hard drive. Or just get an SSD, the prices have dropped on them & will drop more.
Cons: Nada
Other Thoughts: I put this in a Old (2007) HP Ultra Slim line comp to replace a 160GB WD drive. The old drive still works and no signs of it dying anytime soon.

Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3 Ok I guess...could be MUCH better with some small changes
Pros: Small and thin...will fit in any laptop. Does appear to be a bit faster (see other thoughts) than a standard 2.5" 7200rpm drive depending on the usage.
Price/performance is good.
Cons: Misleading performance figures. Very small MLC SSD 'cache', small memory cache, slow rotational speed.
Other Thoughts: While the drive does perform admirably for what it is...I honestly had higher expectations based on the marketing and various reviews. While it does speed up boot time, it didn't speed up that much. Nowhere near what even an average to lower end SSD will do.

If they increased the SSD portion from 8GB (that's just pidly) to say, 32GB, and increased the rotational speed to 7200rpm this drive would FLY.
As it is now, the only thing that's faster is what's stored in the 8GB SSD cache...everything else is actually SLOWER than the 7200rpm drive it replaced.

So yeah...the system boots faster...but that's about it...any other performance gains are marginal at best if not worse than before.

Price/performance is good though, and I suppose that's the reason for the small SSD cache and slow rotational speed. This drive would get a nice boost from just an increase in the rotational speed. 7200rpm is pretty mainstream these days....why go with something slower and try to make it marginally faster that what's already out there????
