1 out of 5 eggsSounds good but still poor Seagate Quality

5 out of 5 eggsHybrid :)

This review is from: Seagate Desktop SSHD ST4000DX001 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Solid State Hybrid Drive Bare Drive

Pros: This has 64MB of Cache, 8GB of Flash memory, and it is 4TB

Cons: It takes some time to see the added benefits, also in order to use with windows it must be initialized as a GPT partition and the system’s base firmware interface must use the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) and not BIOS. -This has nothing to do with Seagate, this has everything to do with Microsoft. Linux detects this automatically for me too.

Other Thoughts: I could not get this drive to be a full 4TB with my Asus VI Formula with Z87 Chipset, however I had no problems what so ever with my Gigabyte GA-Z77XUD5H. When I went to install W7 it automatically detected the 4T hard drive and automatically formatted disk with GPT format. If your having issues with this hard drive saying formatted size 1.8 TB then your Tech Knowledge may be a 1 or 2 dot, not 3 or above.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent performance/$

This review is from: Seagate Desktop SSHD ST4000DX001 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Solid State Hybrid Drive Bare Drive

Pros: If you have an SSD as boot but want a second hard drive for more storage, this is it. You can't find a better performance/$ proposition on the market than this drive, aside from perhaps the 2TB version which spins faster.

Cons: First one was DOA, but that may have been due to the fact it was left outside on a subzero day for several hours. Second one works great.

4TB version spins at 5,900rpm vs. 7,200rpm for 1 & 2TB versions.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome drive

This review is from: Seagate Desktop SSHD ST4000DX001 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Solid State Hybrid Drive Bare Drive

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 Desktop SSHD ST4000DX001 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Solid State Hybrid Drive Bare Drive

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 Desktop SSHD ST4000DX001 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Solid State Hybrid Drive Bare Drive

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.
