4 out of 5 eggsGreat product. Once appropriately installed, it works flawlessly.

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drives ST1000LM014 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 2.5" Laptop SSHD -Bare Drive

Pros: Works faster than the previous drive. Nice to have the hard drive space.

Cons: Seagate installation software was cumbersome and ineffectual when cloning a hard drive from an HP Elitebook 8540w.

Other Thoughts: Installed on an Elitebook 8540w. Seagate DiscWizard was unable to properly clone hard drives with the necessary partition sizes...at least beyond my own abilities or time. Did myself a favor and used the software that came with an Apricorn SATA wire 3.0 (EZ Gig IV Cloning software). It worked like a charm, seamlessly.

5 out of 5 eggsHybrid Drives are GREAT!

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drives ST1000LM014 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 2.5" Laptop SSHD -Bare Drive

Pros: I bought a new laptop with a A10-5750M, 8GB ram & a 1TB drive with Windows 8.1. Before I even ran it I ordered this drive & 16GB of g.skill ram. I booted the laptop, yawn, and made not of the hardware then removed the OE drive. I installed this drive and Windows 7. During the install it was rebooting faster than I could enter the BIOS. Reboots as quick as 14 seconds and on average cold boots as quick as 31 seconds.

For years Seagate has been my go to brand for hard drives. Between overall reliability and low noise they can't be beat. I have some Seagate drives approaching 10 years old and they still work and are quiet.

Cons: Not really a con just a preference. I would like to see these drives have 16-32GB flash drive & 7200RPM.

Seriously, no matter the age of the machine these drives will wake them up.

Other Thoughts: I will & do recommend this product. I will buy more of these. These are a great compromise between full blown SSD and even a 7200RPM HDD.

2 out of 5 eggsFailed after 3 years

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drives ST1000LM014 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 2.5" Laptop SSHD -Bare Drive

Pros: Gave me BIG storage on my old laptop

Cons: And a false sense of security. It failed, data unrecoverable, although the old laptop lives on.

Other Thoughts: Should have replaced the laptop. New philosophy = 1T is too big for a laptop. Use external drives as needed.

1 out of 5 eggsOriginal Drive Failed. Replacement Drive Failed

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drives ST1000LM014 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 2.5" Laptop SSHD -Bare Drive

Pros: Replacement drive worked good for about a month

Cons: First drive failed out of the box. Replacement drive failed after 2 months of use. See other thoughts

Other Thoughts: I bought this drive a year ago to replace drive in my laptop that was going bad. As I installed Windows I was getting all kinds of errors. Chkdsk and a full format found nothing. Eventaully I found and ran Seagate's tool which immediately found problems. I RMA'd the drive but I was leaving town and needed my laptop so I ended up getting a WD Blue drive from a local store. When I got back I RMA'd the drive which cost me $10 to send back. Then I got an email telling me there was shortage of drives and it would be a while until I got my replacement drive. Eventually I got a refurbished drive to replace my brand new drive that never worked. Since I didn't need a second drive I used in a test system for a month and then put back in it's static bag in the original box until I needed another drive. Now 6 months later I got it out, plugged in in and started getting the Windows errors again. I ran the Seagate tools and again it comes up with errors so I went to RMA the drive only to find out it is going to cost me another $10 send it back again and have them replace the replacement drive. I'm not spending anymore money on Seagate drives Instead I'll just do what I should have done in the first place and purchase a WD drive.

2 out of 5 eggsOK until it died age 1 year

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drives ST1000LM014 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 2.5" Laptop SSHD -Bare Drive

Pros: Faster than completely mechanical drive. Bigger than SSD at an equivalent price.

Cons: Died very dead, after 1 year. Not just SMART warnings or a few sectors, but stone cold dead. Put it in a desktop machine as a secondary drive and it prevented the boot drive from working. Couldn't even look for data to recover. Its one of the few drives I've ever had that died completely.

Other Thoughts: I didn't buy this drive from newegg. It came in an ACER E15 laptop I bought from newegg. Laptop has 1 year parts and labor warranty. Guess what, this thing died 1year + 2 weeks. Don't think I will get any love from Seagate on that. Definitely won't get any from ACER.

Decided I still want 1 TB drive so I will take a fling on a WD hybrid drive. Total SSD at 1 TB is worth about 1/2 what I paid for the Laptop. Doesn't make sense to sink that much into a year old laptop.

If the WD dies prematurely, I will have learned my lesson on Hybrid Drives. I'm hoping I will not regret going back to hybrid.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks fine ... but didn't see much performance improvement over traditional disk hard drive

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drives ST1000LM014 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 2.5" Laptop SSHD -Bare Drive

Pros: It works fine

Cons: I know it is not like an SSD but I am still expecting some performance improvement. In fact I am not seeing much difference, not worth the price ...

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Anonymous,

We would like to note that it may take a number of reboots to notice the full performance benefit of your Laptop SSHD. This will allow the adaptive memory feature to determine the data that is accessed most frequently and put this data on the high performing SSD portion of the drive.

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

Seagate Support

5 out of 5 eggsFAST!

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drives ST1000LM014 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 2.5" Laptop SSHD -Bare Drive

Pros: This Seagate ST1000LM014 hybrid cut the boot time in half for Win7 Pro 64 bit, as claimed. I've been using it daily since 3/21/2015, and have not experienced one SMART error so far. It is doing exactly what I expected, and does what I bought it for. The right part, the right price, the right performance, and delivered right to my doorstep! What more could I want? Seagate and Newegg to the rescue! Both Seagate and Newegg have earned my trust for future purchases. Thank you Newegg Team!

Cons: None, so far! :-)

Other Thoughts: In Texan, "Hell yes!" I recommend this Seagate ST1000LM014 notebook hard drive to all concerned.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat upgrade drive for older laptops, it's just not as quick as a SDD.

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drives ST1000LM014 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 2.5" Laptop SSHD -Bare Drive

Pros: I replaced an Seagate 500gig hard drive in a 3 year old HP Pavilion dv6-2151cl laptop with this new Hybrid drive. I was never happy with the old drive, it always seemed sluggish even with regular defragging.

I wanted a lot more hard drive space for movies, music, games and doing video editing when I'm on vacation, so I took a chance on this new drive. I did a clean install with a Win 7 Premium Home DVD.. it was a hassle but I wanted to avoid all the junkware HP puts on their laptops. After a few days of regular use (leaving it on for 2-4 hours) I've noticed my old laptop has a lot more "spunk" and speed now. Windows 7 and big programs like Firefox and Photoshop load up in less than a minute. I've also done video editing with Sony Movie Studio 11. Sorting through, editing and rendering huge 1920×1080 HD MTS movie clips is MUCH faster and glitch free than it was working with the old drive.

Cons: It does slow down when transferring huge files like 3-4 gig movies, but overalll its still faster than most laptop hard drives. This drive is not quite the SSD-like super speed demon Seagate has hyped it to be, but still very quick and surprising, especially for loading WIndows 7.

Other Thoughts: I wonder what kind of performance a hybrid drive would have with a 7200 rpm disc speed and 32-64 or more gigs of cache? I hope this drive lasts for a few years until I get a new laptop or 1-2TB SDD drives become more affordable. I do a lot of traveling with my laptop, and I dont baby it. Hopefully Seagate wont flinch on their warranty. To wrap it up, this is an excellent upgrade drive if you have an older laptop and I'm very happy with it.

1 out of 5 eggsDead on arrival Seagate Hybrid Drives ST1000LM014 1TB

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drives ST1000LM014 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 2.5" Laptop SSHD -Bare Drive

Pros: No Pros as I wasn't able to use it.

Cons: Ineligible for return!

Other Thoughts: I planned to use this to upgrade my ps4 hd but upon boot it wasn't able to detect it.
Connecting it to a PC also wouldn't detect it in Device Manager or Disk Management.
