5 out of 5 eggsStill A Great 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: Fast boot-up and program loading.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This is a follow up from my review in May. I use this drive in my Asus laptop. I was running Windows 7 at that time and am now running Windows 10 since the end of July. The performance is still superb. I highly recommend this drive for its speed and reliability. And I got it from NewEgg for a great price.

5 out of 5 eggsI ordered this 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: I ordered this drive... 4 business days later I received it followed by installation into my laptop... 1 week later... this is my whole experience

First off, get yourself a usb to sata adapter compatible with mac, in my case, an agestar adapter (newegg ID: 9SIA4991C86923) I got a program called "Carbon Copy Cloner" for mac, you can get it from just about anywhere, I myself got it from softpediaDOTcom. I then created 2x 500GB partitions, keeping OS X and all my media seperate, which sort of speeds up the boot process, and then cloned my macintosh HD partition.

I removed the battery, as required, switched out the drives, turned my macbook on, and at first i didn't think it worked, for it sat there for 2 minutes before the apple logo popped up, I guess it was reconfiguring the firmware, but 2 or 3 boot ups later, I definitely noticed speed up in my boot times, a good 15 seconds off, switching from sata 2, to sata 3, and the built in SSD is just gravy on top of it all.

To top it all off, it has the original seagate logo, the one we all know and love.

Cons: I asked and watched, it didn't make any sandwiches despite the plea. At first I thought it was incapable, but what was I thinking, I looked around and didn't see any condiments to make a sandwich, it simply didn't have the supplies. So I went to the fridge and then to the cupboard for some bread and condiments, and sat it in front of the disk, 30 minutes later it didn't even try, so then I thought, maybe it really didn't know how. I quickly ran to my computer and printed out a step-by-step tutorial on how to make a sandwich and sat it there next to the drive and condiments, I thought "it shouldn't take longer than 10 minutes now".

20 minutes later I decided to show it how to make a sandwich, and finally I had my sandwich, but I asked of it to repeat what I just did. I gave it another 20-30 minutes to piece it together, I got back home from the store, it sat there unmoved, everything untouched. I decided to give up. I went ahead to switch it out with my other drive, and it's doing a fantastic job at storing my data, without even trying, so I can't be mad at it.

4 out of 5 eggsdecent-good performance on game systems

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: Snappy performance.
noticeable difference in terms of speed and performance compared to original stock HDDs
So far so good; no issues.

Cons: kinda pricey.
quality concerns (other reviews about SHDDs dying w/in 1 year have me nervous)

Other Thoughts: I'm getting annoyed with modern console gaming. Sticking PC parts in game systems is good, but not when the major manufacturers keep grabbing for the cheapest low quality junk that doesn't have enough space, reduces the performance of the machine, and the savings are never passed on to the end buyer (usually increased).

bought 2 of these drives and popped them into 2 game consoles I own. Difference is like night and day. The PS3 in particular (yes, you can put one in there) is like a different system. Huge improvement. The original 300 gb HDD was complete garbage.

4 out of 5 eggsan interesting 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: when my laptop is powered off, cold, just hit the start button and it's up and running windoze 8 in a few seconds, which is awesome. Before, with the stock drive, start-up used to take what seemed like hours, i was painful.

Cons: the sshd hard drive seems to learn what you do most often, and those tasks get faster and faster; but new tasks seem to be slow; and some procedures, like virus scans, seem to take even longer than they did before with the original hard drive.

Other Thoughts: Before installing this drive, my main complaint was slow to wake up (hit the power button and then hit the vending machine for a cup of coffee while waiting for windoze 8 to boot). That is now dramatically fixed. Yay! But not all actions were sped up equally, and some tasks seem even slower. And so, if you want or need a 1 T-byte "hard" drive but don't want to shell out the big bucks for a real solid state drive, this SSHD is an excellent compromise, as long as you know what you're getting. It's way, way faster on some tasks, and no faster on other tasks; it's not 10% faster or 20% faster on all asks.

5 out of 5 eggsMakes All The Difference

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: Boosted my laptop performance immediately
Went from taking over 30 minutes (on a good day) in Windows 8, to less than 15 seconds.
A Terabyte of storage at nearly SSD speeds – All for the price of a mechanical hard drive.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I love Asus laptops, and just bought the X553M. This is a quad core that spec’ed a little better than my older dual core version. When it arrived, I could not believe its poor performance. Speed was so bad I thought I had inadvertently been sent back to the 8088 (XT) days.

This laptop’s first boot took forever, and re-boots during initial OS updates were taking as much as 4 hours. At one point I thought the machine had hung up and hard booted it – Big mistake, took over two days to recover. I was losing time and money, and was ready to send it back.

Just then I ran across this drive. The price was so attractive, I thought to give it a try and see if it could make this laptop redeemable. Bingo! I was instantly transported back to the information age!

Tech Notes:
I installed the drive temporarily in a Kingston external USB enclosure in order to clone the factory drive’s partitions and make the new drive bootable. Acronis True Image 2015 would not complete the clone process until I used it to make a recovery disk first and boot from that. After booting from the recovery disk I was easily able to complete the cloning process and make the new drive bootable. Swapping the factory drive was easy – Just be careful and gentile with all small ribbon cables when going inside your laptop.

Great purchase – Highly recommended

4 out of 5 eggsBigger, Faster, as advertised

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: 1. Great company
2. Great Price (i paid ~$80 shipped)
3. Works
4. Lots of storage in a small space
5. Blazing fast

Cons: wasnt free?
no real cons yet but i have only owned it for 5 months, check in with me in 7 more

Other Thoughts: I bought it for my PS4 (for storage, got speed at a great price)
Worked out of the box, instantly knew it was faster than the original drive (were only talking a few seconds here)
only had it since march, august at time of review but i trust seagate (yes a lot of the ST3000's are bad, dont buy a hard drive if you dont expect it to fail at some point)
left one egg off because i didnt like the shipping. But thats just my paranoia, it really wasnt bad, i just overpack stuff

4 out of 5 eggsPS4 Drive Replacement

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: Cheap
Fast
Quiet

Purchased this for a PS4 drive replacement. I was getting low on space and after some research this drive showed up as a recommended swap.

Overall I'm happy with the performance. Games where you die a lot and have long loading times between deaths (*cough, Bloodborne) are much less frustrating to play now. Boot up time and apps like Netflix or Spotify load faster etc.

Cons: Thick? (I wouldn't use in slim laptops, think it's 9.5mm which is too thick).

The time it took to backup my original 500GB drive and restore to the new Seagate was a real pain. Takes a good day to get this done. Of course this is not fault of the drive but I wasn't about to lose PT ;D

Other Thoughts: I understand Sony will be releasing an updated PS4 model with a 1TB drive but for anyone who owns the original PS4 this hybrid drive swap will make using your old PS4 much better.

5 out of 5 eggsGood upgrade

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's bigger and faster than the drive it's replacing, which was nearly full.
It works well, so I ordered a second one for a different laptop.

Cons: I wish it were 2T in size, but there was no 2T option.

Other Thoughts: Filling up a boot hard drive (nearly) completely is generally not a good idea.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't buy for a Toshiba laptop

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 have no Pro because it never works

Cons: Not compatible with the Toshiba laptop, I updated the BIOS on the Toshiba but still won't boot up Windows 8.1, Not recognise the SSD at all

Other Thoughts: A total waste of time and money for me
