Toshiba's 2.5-inch (6.4 cm) solid state hybrid drives (SSHD) combine SSD-like performance with large HDD capacities. The 7.0mm MQ01ABFxxxH series provides 500GB or 320GB storage capacity.

The drives squeeze 8GB of NAND storage in a lightweight design which makes them ideal for high-performance and ultra-thin notebooks, as well as slim line and gaming PCs. Media transfer rates reach 1288MBps while noise levels stay exceptionally low - maximum seek noise is just 21dB.

All Toshiba SSHDs utilize self-learning algorithms that enable the drive to identify the user's access patterns, allowing frequently used data to be stored in the NAND cache making it quickly accessible to the host. Likewise, data that is used less often is moved from the NAND flash to the HDD for long term storage. This self-learning mechanism continues to develop throughout the lifespan of the drive, constantly improving the performance.

Toshiba is the only storage vendor that designs and develops both HDD and NAND flash technology, the core components of hybrid drive technology ensuring the highest quality and innovation.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for older systems still running Windows XP

Pros: I purchased 3 of these from a local vendor. The older systems I put them into are still running Windows XP. Performance improvement was very noticeable on these systems, and I don't have to deal with issues of alignment that SSDs have on XP. Great cost savings compared to my normally installing an Intel or Samsung SSD for TRIM support.

Cons: I don't trust UPS for delivering hard drives

Other Thoughts: I will post again if there are any issues with the drives, but 3 months, and they're still performing well.

These are very tiny drives and have to be packaged well. That's why I purchased them from a local vendor, since I don't trust how UPS delivers packages.

1 out of 5 eggsScary bad SSHD. Go with something else.

Pros: SSHD should in theory help windows boot faster at some point(s).

Cons: Don't do it! I have had three of the four of these I bought fail terribly. Lost tons of data, on less than 3 months. :( Strongly recommend the XT instead.

Other Thoughts: Smart is disabled out of box, because?
