1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY Burn Notice (Literally)

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drives ST500LM000 500GB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 2.5" Laptop SSHD -Bare Drive

Pros: It arrived in one piece and was packed well. Seagate used to make great products. I had many that worked great in the past.

Cons: I ordered this drive on 2/20/2015. It arrived a couple of days ago and looked like a great new oem drive for my laptop. I had noticed mixed reviews on these, but I decided to take a chance anyway(which was definitely a mistake). I installed it today and attempted to do a fresh install of Windows 7 Pro. It only showed 365GB and is a 500GB drive which is strange. Windows install would not load. Did a diagnostic check because I purchased new ram also. Ram works great. Opened up my laptop the hard drive was so hot it could literally burn the flesh off of your body. Had to wait for it to cool down before removing it. Tried my old hard drive and everything worked fine. I can't find a single good thing to say about this product. I recommend using an oven mitt if you receive one like this and need to get it out of your laptop or PC.

Other Thoughts: Made in China. I do not recommend buying Seagate anymore if you want a working product.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent drive and good concept

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drives ST500LM000 500GB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 2.5" Laptop SSHD -Bare Drive

Pros: - Works as advertised, most frequently used applications store bits into cache to give SSD like perfomance.

- Windows boot times in between 15-25 seconds depending on the system after a couple of boots.

Cons: - 5400RPM
- Only 8Gb's of cache available
- If installing an applications, game, ect. and trying to do multiple other things, the cache system will not save you from a bit of slow down and haults.

Other Thoughts: I have installed 3 of these into computers now. All three worked as intended from the first boot. For the users of the computers, these drives will do but for intense users who like to do multiple things at once, a westren digital black or SSD will be your better option.

Ran HDTune with these drives and all 3 were consistently in between 80-110 Mbps. Now that isn't testing the NAND cache, that's testing the platter. A WD Black will out perform this when doing multiple HDD intensive tasks such as installing, rendering, ect..

If they could increase the NAND to 16-32Gb's and make it a 7200RPM drive which may increase its form factor to 3.5" then charge an additional $15-$20 that would be a winner. For now, if you are not an intense user, you will enjoy SSD like speed without sacrificing the needed storage space with these SSHD's.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Performance

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drives ST500LM000 500GB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 2.5" Laptop SSHD -Bare Drive

Pros: Boot times have improved, cached apps are loading like lightning. Works well with Linux. Arch and Ubuntu verified working well (just in case you were wondering). It didn't require any special formatting or partitioning to install the OSes. I am certain that whatever distro you decide to use, it'll work like advertised.

Cons: NONE.

Other Thoughts: Buy it and don't look back.

5 out of 5 eggsAMAZING! Computer Builder can say Recommended!

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drives ST500LM000 500GB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 2.5" Laptop SSHD -Bare Drive

Pros: Building High End Gaming PCs and selling refurbished desktops and laptops for over 10 years

SSDs are penetrating the market as the price point comes down but too many people still have no idea what they are and are scared of the "small size" of 120GB or 250GB SSDs

This Hybrid Drive solves this marketing and performance conundrum - you get the effective speed of an SSD and the large storage capacity of a traditional hard drive - and its EASY to market!

You say - its a really really fast 500 Gigabyte Hard Drive! And that's all it takes, and you sell the laptop!

Cons: Keep it a secret - I want it to be a tech secret and reap all the benefits - lol just kidding

Other Thoughts: System builder or not - you will appreciate this drive!

2 out of 5 eggsFailed after a month

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drives ST500LM000 500GB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 2.5" Laptop SSHD -Bare Drive

Pros: Noticeable speed improvement over old drive. Good price.

Cons: Drive failed after approx 5-6 weeks.

Other Thoughts: Has 3 year warranty, but have to pay shipping for old drive back to seagate. Would have returned to the egg, but they only take 30 days, and I was around 45ish.

Tried seaTools long and short fix, tests, etc. To no avail.
