Pros: Finally a hard drive that works on my PS3 with no issue's. My playstation is running faster than the standard hdd's. Love the fact that it remembers my actions and started doing them by itself.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If your looking for a reliable hard drive this is it.

Pros: Normally these have been good drives

Cons: This item was received in my shop in a damaged package that wasn't properly sealed (PO marked rec'd in damaged condition.! now due to the fact that my customer lives over 150 miles away the order is 2 days over the 30 day mark and as the drive has a bad sector. I am now going to have to go through seagate.to get satisfaction. I did report the package being in bad condition.

4 out of 5 eggsFits in PS3

Pros: Big storage space for PS3

Cons: Not as fast as I thought

Other Thoughts: I got this because I needed more storage in my PS3, and it was linked from an older model and happened to be on sale. It says its faster than a 7200 RPM hard drive, but doesn't say its actual speed. It is an improvement, but could be more.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty impressive

Pros: Recently bought this at a local store because my SSD died and they were completely sold out of all SSD's. Brought it home not expecting much, installed Windows 8.1 and booted it. I'd say the boot time between my old SSD and this were barely noticeable. Much better then you would expect for it being what it is.

Cons: As you should expect, the read and write speeds within Windows are on par with standard HDD's. The drive claims to boot up commonly used applications faster but I have yet to notice his.

Other Thoughts: Although this is a nice drive for what it is, at the end of the day an SSD is typically going to be faster with both boot times and write speed. This is only worth the money if you are limited to the amount of drives you can put in your computer (i.e.-a laptop) and need a large amount of space on your system drive.

2 out of 5 eggsNormal Performance at Premium Price

Pros: -1TB of storage
-Quiet

Had to RMA my first one and Seagate shipped me a replacement drive in advance, which was nice.

Cons: The drive does not perform significantly better than hard drives of the same capacity for 30 bucks less. I expected the ssd memory cache to improve startup times but it does not.

As I said, I had to RMA my first drive. I am disappointed that Seagate shipped me a replacement drive that was significantly older by several firmware versions than the one I bought. I brought this up to their support and they basically told me "Tough luck, we've complied with our warranty terms."

Other Thoughts: Seagate complied with their warranty terms, but they could have done better than the bare minimum. Now I've effectively spent 100 bucks on a refurbished drive. I gave Seagate a shot, and they came up short. For performance, I would recommend WD over this brand. For budget-minded buyers, I would recommend HGST or Toshiba.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Roy R.,

We wanted to note that it may take a few reboots to notice the full performance benefit of the Desktop Hybrid drive. The reboots are necessary to allow the adaptive memory feature to determine what data is accessed the most and to put this data on the quick access solid state portion of the drive.

If you are not observing a performance increase after a half dozen reboots, we would like to talk with you by phone to determine the root cause and available resolution to the problem. A support case (#04189905) has been created that will reference your review and our response. If from the US or Canada, our contact number for technical support is 800-732-4283.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great in my PS3, just don't use the utilities.

Pros: Fast read and write speed, more space for games

Cons: The PS3 has utilities that allow you to clear the cache and defragment the hard drive. However if you do this on drives bigger than 500GB it will corrupt every single time.

2 out of 5 eggsWorked well, now it doesn't

Pros: It worked as I would expect a drive to work, has good storage capacity, wrote quickly. Boot time was good too.

Cons: After a few months it developed a clicking sound, I have had it for 5 months now, computer skips, freezes, clicking has gotten worse. I am making a point to back up all my things before it goes, luckily it came with a 3 year warranty but it's very inconvenient to have to transfer all my data.

Pros: The hybrid drive made my 2011 MacBook Pro pretty fast. It was noticible during booting and running applications.

3 out of 5 eggsI cannot rely on this drive

Pros: I have two of the Momentus XT 500GB hybrid drives and they have performed well. The 1T version is not doing so well and after a week I have decided to not use it in my Asus laptop--some applications don't operate in the hybrid environment

Cons: I have cloned a Seagate 500G Momentus XT hybrid drive onto the ST1000LM014 1TB version and had many errors with the operating system, inability to update W7 Pro 64 SP1. Important applications that required RavenDB and Microsoft's ESENT subroutines will not start databases... then there were issues with verifying the authenticity of the W7 Pro license that come and go.

I have tried to a clean install of W7 Pro 64 from an Enterprise version and an individual upgrade license and neither install could complete. I have multi-user licensed version of Acronis 2013 True Image and Disk Director and Acronis has cloned the original drive to the new drive with proportional partition sizing without any evident errors. The cloned drive boots up and runs many applications without obvious problems but I cannot update W7 or download files, run files of even save files on the cloned drive!

So... I will not be able to rely on Seagate Hybrid Drive ST1000LM014 1TB drive as the boot drive. It may be useful as a backup drive for data but there are much less costly storage options than this drive for such purposes.

I am reserving judgment on this drive pending a possible acquisition of Paragon's drive utilities to see if maybe a different variation on clone or migration method might result in a more reliable upgrade option.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Bobby B.,
