2 out of 5 eggs1 out of 2 DOA

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

Pros: Has plenty of space (make sure you know what you are getting into with OS size limitations due to partition types and UEFI BIOS), go to http://www.seagate.com/support/downloads/beyond-2tb/ for details.

Pretty quiet, I could not make out the drive operational sounds unless I get my ear right near the drive bays. SSD cache helps but only if you do a lot of repetitive tasks, otherwise not much difference. Access times in HDTune were around 12-13ms - not bad for 5900RPM drive and of this size. Drive stays relatively cool... will update with more info later.

Cons: Got 2 of these to run them in RAID 1 for massive redundant storage... 1 out of 2 failed right on the spot(DOA). BIOS and RAID will sometime see the faulty drive but will fail to initialize... causes a hang on boot up to Windows. If faulty drive is disconnected, then Windows loads just fine.

Tried changing SATA cables, ports, even tried X48/ICH9R as well as on my new z97. No dice.

The funny thing is... 1 drive has manufacturing date of 10/2013...works perfect( so far anyway). The other drive that failed was made litteraly a month ago (DOM 11/2014).

Will report after RMA replacement.

Other Thoughts: I got these drives to store my movies and other hefty files... since I will have 2 in RAID for redundancy, it probably will be OK. But if I only had 1 I might be worried since these drives are huge and without redundancy that is a lot of data to lose.

Overall it seems like all recent(2012+) hard drives(all manufacturers) are just questionable in reliability. My Samsung 1TB 103SJs still work like a charm(knock on wood) since (2/2010)in RAID 0. My WD 1x Raptor(WD1500ADFD ), 2x 1TB(WD1001FALS ) all failed after 2-4 years. By the obvious failure rate per product comments .. all recent drives are even more failure-prone and absolutely unreliable. All these large drives are cool and all but absolutely useless if they keep failing at these rates. Go look at old HDD review pages... no where near the amount of failure reviews. Sad.

2 out of 5 eggsLot's of Storage, Same Speed

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

Pros: 4TB of Storage is nice. I am using this as a Back-Up Drive to a (2) 1TB RAID-0 array and supplemental storage if needed. That is about all the good I can say, see Cons

Cons: When testing with Parkdale I saw no speed increase over a standard 7200RPM 64MB Cache HDD.

When I bought the drive it was on sale for $169.99. I thought for the extra $30 (over a standard 4TB HDD) it was worth it. However, at regular price of ~$250 it is not worth it!

Parkdale will test a standard 7200RPM 64MB Cache drive at ~141Mbps Read and ~150Mbps for Write. This drive tested at ~170Mpbs for Read and ~169Mbps for Write. While there was some improvement that marginal amount is not worth the cost difference.

Other Thoughts: You could buy (2) Standard 3TB drives for the cost of one of these and have more storage capacity.

3 out of 5 eggsnice size

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

Pros: I love the size, this one drive replaced 2 1tb drives

Cons: the problem that I have is it is not as fast as my old hard drive that it replaced. With this drive claiming that the SSD part would make it faster, I was not impressed

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Mario,

We wanted to note that it may take a number of reboots to notice the full performance benefit of the Desktop Solid State 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 have additional questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our support staff and we will be happy to assist further:

3 out of 5 eggsBuyer BEWARE!!

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

Pros: Lots of space, hybrid drive, reliable company.

Cons: I have a AM3+ FX processor and 970 Extreme R.20 board with UEFI and I cannot install windows 7 64-bit on it. This is due to the MBR limitation of 2+ TB. Even if using two partitions, if GPT is used, Windows doesn't like it. Do your research, make sure your hardware can support UEFI and GPT. Alternatively, buy the 1TB or 2TB version of this drive and you'll experience no issues.

Other Thoughts: I'm disappointed Seagate didn't make drivers for this SSHD. Giving it three stars because Seagate is selling products that aren't fully supported.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

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

Pros: Huge. Works.

Cons: None at this moment

Other Thoughts: Had to buy an add-on sata card to get all 4Tb. Nforce chipset only sees 2 Tb. Probably because of this 1X PCIe card, I can't say that the drive amazed me with speed. Not like it is that important for me, but still. Probably I should've settled for a regular HD.

2 out of 5 eggsOriginal unit needed RMA

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

Pros: None originally, second unit worked flawlessly, good throughput's for a hybrid drive. Very tempted to put two in raid0

Cons: First unit was DOA, spindle would not turn even after power was on, troubleshot all connection possibilities before RMAing the unit.

Other Thoughts: Turnaround for the RMA from newegg was very painless. Very impressed with their process.

1 out of 5 eggsNever Made it

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

Pros: I would have really liked to have reviewed this item, unfortunately it never arrived getting lost in the system..

Cons: can't give you any because I never got the drive

Other Thoughts: if you have some other thoughts, however I doubt you will print this because it really paints them in a bad light.. Their customer service on this item was lousy, I had to make several phone calls just to get them to finally admit that it was lost in the system they made me wait the entire ship time when they could've just as easily ship me a new one admitted overnight.. However they didn't do that. This is really lowered my faith in new egg and will have to just see how things go in the future.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid and fast

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

Pros: fast, and quiet.

Cons: non so far

Other Thoughts: Have had this installed as a replacement for my 2tb drive in my imac. Have been running this drive for about 5 months now with no issues. The drive is without a question faster than the stock drive that came with the imac due to the onboard 8gb ssd. There are no heat issues or sound issues as compared with the stock drive.
