5 out of 5 eggsWorks Like a charm

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: Used this in the PS4 and PS3. Installation and was a breeze. Great price for what you get. So far Seagate has made a great product with these 1TB SSHD. If you have a PS3 or PS4 this is a must have upgrade with the amount of free games that Sony gives every month.

Cons: None so far.

5 out of 5 eggsSeagate Hybrid Drives ST1000LM014 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 2.5" Laptop SSHD -Bare 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: Bought the hybrid hard drive to increase speed on a Dell Inspiron 3521 which was a 5200 RPM drive. Sure enough 5 X faster booting time and loading apps. Runs windows 7 and 8.1. No noise no fuss a real upgrade !

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Order arrived within 2 days Fast delivery. Took me 10 minutes to replace the drives then re-installed windows 8.1 from scratch. No need to upgrade the DDR3 4GB RAM as this HD is now up to speed with the RAM. Now the laptop rocks ! No more waiting for software to initialize, done within seconds. Great buy I recommend. No regrets,

4 out of 5 eggsMostly as Expected

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 does improve the boot times though only slightly. Gave a large boost to program load times on my most used work programs this was great to see.

Cons: Had hoped to see better windows load times.

Other Thoughts: As my old drive was a 7200rpm drive this drive improved load times while also slightly increasing my batteries life.

5 out of 5 eggsBeen Working Great for Me

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've had this drive installed in my PS4 for months now and it's been working smoothly: no overheating, no system failure, and perceived operating speeds during system use are fully satisfactory to me. I'd recommend this drive to anyone who's just acquired a PS4. The standard drive is completely insufficient in this digital download, multi-gig-install-from-disk age.

Cons: None yet, it still works the way it's supposed to. Here's hoping I didn't jinx it.

3 out of 5 eggsnot so fast!

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: Installed in macbook 09 with 8 gb....an improvement, but still not that much difference in boot time. Otherwise reliable, & occasionally swift. However, not worth the extra $$ in purchasing IMHO.

Cons: added costs not justified

Other Thoughts: spend more for ssd instead

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Ronald,

We would like to note that it may take a few additional reboots to notice the full performance benefit of your Laptop Solid State Hybrid drive. 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:

5 out of 5 eggsSSHD

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: Small form factor, low cost, high capacity, fast, efficient, functional in humid and arid climates.

Cons: Still a spin drive with the potential of spin drive damages.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I like this SSHD. Works as advertised. Once you get it all hooked up, you notice a significant difference. Rest assured, your machine is only as fast as the processor will allow, but upgrading some of the other items definitely helps out. I have a late 2011 model macbook pro and threw this in there and it is flawless. I will be purchasing these drives for all of my machines.

1 out of 5 eggsDisappointing performance; Buy a true SSD

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: Quiet

Cons: Slower than many non-hybrid drives
Various performance issues

Other Thoughts: Falling for the hybrid hype, I purchased this drive after much research. However, after purchasing this drive to replace my slow, stock laptop hard drive, I was amazed to discover that the performance gains were minimal. It simply wasn't worth the money I spent.

I tested it against two other non-hybrid hard drives of the same size and found that both the non-hybrids outperformed this drive by up to 15, even after a firmware update.. The other two drives were both Western Digital drives; one a laptop drive and the other, a desktop drive. The desktop drive was the fastest of the three.

A few days ago, I purchased a SSD drive of the same size. It wasn't cheap, but it outperforms this hybrid by a factor of 4.5 to 1, and with an industry wide average failure rate of less than 1% as compared to an average failure rate of 5% for HDD. Add to that the decreased operating temperature and lower power consumption, and you'll easily get more for your money with SSD drives. My battery lasts more than 2 times as long as it did with the hybrid.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear William H.,

We would like to note that it may take a few reboots to notice the full performance benefit of your Desktop Solid State Hybrid drive. 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.
