5 out of 5 eggsAwesome drive

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST4000DX001 4TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: I just got this drive today and had no issues setting it up. It's very fast, I'm mostly using it for my Plex server so the SSHD is what I wanted.

Windows 7 Pro 64-Bit had no issues recognizing in "disk management" and it only took a few min to set it up and format it.

I ordered this on 4-22-15 when there was a $30 off coupon so it was $139.99 and it arrived today 4-24-15 with regular free shipping, nice job Newegg!

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I also have the 2TB version of this same SSHD and it's been working flawlessly.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter Than Other Seagate Expiriences

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST4000DX001 4TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: Get some of the SSD benefits with the reliability of magnetic storage.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Seagate in recent years has been a little shoddy when it comes to quality control, but this drive is holding up so far.

5 out of 5 eggsSomewhat quiet, cool, 3 year warranty

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST4000DX001 4TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: Might use less energy than the non-hybrid version.
Possibly faster than the non-hybrid version.
Reasonably quiet
Relatively low power (2.5" drives are more power efficient)
3 year warranty

Cons: Possibly slower than the non-hybrid version (Seagate specs the seeks as being slower.)

Other Thoughts: I've had the non-hybrid 4TB Seagate Desktop HDD.15 ST4000DM000 for a couple of years as backup for a 3TB Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 ST3000DM001 in my home server. Both of those drives are reasonable quiet and decent performers. The 7200 rpm 3TB is certainly faster than the 5900 rpm 4TB.

I wanted to replace the 3TB drive with a fast 4TB, so I first purchased a 4TB Toshiba PH3400U-1I72, and while the Toshiba was a bit faster than the 3TB Seagate it was also several times noisier.

This drive seems just as quiet as the other Seagates. I've certainly had quieter drives than any of them in the past, but these might be as good as 3.5" drivers get now. I am sure having 4 platters doesn't help.

I am not sure how Seagate manages the flash, or if it is even useful for a file server drive. It is just a single flash chip, so it likely has less bandwidth than the mechanical disks. The point of it should just be to reduce latency. According to Seagate this drive has higher seek times than the non-hybrid version. If the drive controller understood the file system the 8GB flash chip could just store the beginning of every file.

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST4000DX001 4TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: Excellent paperweight

Cons: DOA

Other Thoughts: Fails Seagate's Short Self Test right out of the box. Locks up/ doesn't start.

4 out of 5 eggsOne failure

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST4000DX001 4TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: It's storage. I have fast boots, but this is being used in a headless server (linux), so take that as you will.

Cons: Had one DOA. Replacement through seagate was a hassle. They wouldn't take my prepaid credit card which was a real pain. Had to borrow a family members' CC to return a drive (I did the advanced replacement where the drive is shipped to you first, so a $10 charge applies).

Other Thoughts: Make sure to enable SMART tests and alerts, people. Otherwise you won't catch bad drives until it's too late.

5 out of 5 eggsWorking Great!

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST4000DX001 4TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: Reasonable Price
Relatively Quiet If Not Almost Silent (in most cases)
Seagates Bundled software can be helpful
Does Not Generate An Above Normal Temperature for a HDD

Cons: None so Far

Other Thoughts: Haven't done any testing to see if a Hybrid is faster or not, but the placebo effect would seem to indicate Yes.

2 out of 5 eggsASUS Crosshair V MB Incompatability

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST4000DX001 4TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: N/A

Cons: Page detailing the item under "Overview" states:
"Installs like a standard hard drive: SATA compatible"

I have an ASUS Crosshair V formula with an up to date BIOS 2101, and I cannot get the board to recognize it. I have tried connecting it to all available ports on my MB to see if my BIOS would recognize it, but nothing. All other ports work for my current devices though, so it is not the SATA ports.
-I do not have a secondary MB laying around to test whether the drive is defective
-because I cannot fully test the drive I can only be neutral in my rating (3/5)
-However, because the page does not detail compatibility issues, I have to rate (1/5), plus because of the inconvenience

4 out of 5 eggsDoes the job

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST4000DX001 4TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: Priced well for 4TBs of storage with a slight performance boost over a normal mechanical drive.

Cons: When I threw this drive in my machine, it only registered half of the advertised 4TB. I am not sure why but I was able to get it sorted.

Other Thoughts: I, personally, haven't noticed any major benefits from using this over a regular mechanical drive. It had a good price tag at the time and

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Brady,

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of the Hybrid Desktop SSHD.

We would like to note that it may take a number of 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.

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