2 out of 5 eggsHybrid Drive.

Pros: Very good price for a hybrid drive.

Cons: - No significant difference in windows 7 boot time.
- Very poor Sequential Write operations.
- Struggles with VMware work station work loads. Running one VM can bring performance to the point you need wait and click one task at a time.. Steady HD light on and performance very low.
- Not sure how the 8 GB SSD caching works. There is no way to tell. Even system at Idle time to time the HD light stays on and you can see System resources are struggle for HD resources.
- Not as advertised. I believe the advertisement is misleading and do not think this will increase performance as they advertised here.
- Performs up to 5× faster than a traditional 5400-RPM HDD - false advertisement, under what work load and work criteria its 5 times faster. Read performance is
not 5x faster. When launching a VM it takes very long time for the VM to come up and have to wait a good 5 min before I can start clicking on the desktop icons or open my computer.

Other Thoughts: Please do not advertise this drive being 5x faster than regular drive. I still cannot tell what performance increase I got over the 7200 RPM drive that was in this Lenovo laptop. My boot time did not increase and VM performance is really slow. I think advertisement is misleading. I would like to see real benchmarks showing performance increase while running VMs.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Soheil E.,

The Laptop Solid State Hybrid drive is designed for a typical laptop environment where it will optimize individual files that are called during boot or frequent program launches. A Virtual Machine runs off a single very large file and this file would not be able to be optimized. The main operating system for the laptop should show improved boot time after a few reboots, once the drive has had time to learn which files load most often.

If you have additional questions or concerns, please contact our support staff and we will be happy to assist further:

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive!

Pros: These drives are a great addition to the aging Mac Book Pros. Cuts boot times to less than 20-30 seconds, maintains or increases storage space.

Cons: Really no problems to report after 15-20 installations.

1 out of 5 eggsKeeps crashing my system

Pros: Pretty cheap

Cons: Tried everything. It crashes my system. Not often, but enough to stop me from sending it back in the first month. When I was working on a new project and it rebooted out of nowhere, I removed the drive and it's been plain sailing for weeks. AVOID.

Other Thoughts: Worked well enough to get me out of the return RMA process time wise.

1 out of 5 eggsDefective

Pros: None.

Cons: After installing drive into a brand new Zbook 14, computer would not boot properly.

Memory checks and other issues are prompted each time on boot up.

This seems to be a defective drive.

Don't buy this. Just spend extra for true SSD.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It's a bit faster than a normal HDD

Cons: Got a random BSOD and now the hard drive will not work at all. Not even three months after purchase, I have to hope that Seagate will give me a replacement because something caused this drive to fail after very light use.

Other Thoughts: I've bought from Seagate before, I own multiple drives from them and this is just one of those times where I got a bad apple from the pile.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Bang for the Buck

Pros: Seagate has been building these hybrid drives for quite a few years now but only recently do they seem to be really catching on. I've installed many of them over the years and though the performance isn't quite that of a full Solid State hard drive they still provide an enormous performance advantage over a traditional hard drive without sacrificing storage capacity.

Cons: Only 5400 RPM, probably to save battery life on a laptop so it's understandable.

Other Thoughts: I wish they would offer models with more SSD cache. Why not offer one with 32 or 64 GB SSD? sure the price would be a little higher but still way cheaper than full SSD.
