1 out of 5 eggsBad buy

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

Pros: These drives are very fast, until they fail.
Inexpensive.

Cons: The drives run great for the first 3-4 weeks with speeds making you think you have a pure SSD, but as time goes on they start to increasingly slow down. Then you get that first BSoD. After that, it is nothing but down hill. I tried formatting, reinstalling, defrag, nothing helped.

Other Thoughts: Almost every person I know who has purchased a drive of this series (SSHD) has had the same experience with increasing sluggishness, then total failure. Not to mention the COUNTLESS reviews all over the web saying the same. Please do yourself the favor and look into anything else. Even other Seagates, just not this series.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsnever going to buy a seagate

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

Pros: What? Are you kidding?

Cons: They're made by Seagate.

Other Thoughts: I stopped buying Seagate products in the previous millennium and I have no regrets. For those who are daring enough to buy one of these, that 3-year warranty will come in handy.

2 out of 5 eggsDon't buy

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

Pros: None

Cons: Purchased two of these, one arived DOA. These drives seems to be very fragile and sensitve to environment and even shipping them can destory the drive dispite the greatest care taken in packaging them.

Other Thoughts: One drive was good. These drives do not seem to report a serial number to Windows 8.1 though so it was trial and error to figure out which drive was dead. Overall, don't buy. Buy a SSD instead the advantages of SSD Cache do not outweigh the cost of modern day SSDs any more. If you want a HDD for archival storage then get a normal Hard Drive.

1 out of 5 eggs

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

Pros: Good for a while.

Cons: Okay, here's what I have to say, this drive is kinda deceiving. It looks great and sounds great but, it ran good for a while, until the day I got a blue screen, and then a week later and got another one. Everything was installed correctly I assure you. My case is properly cooled too. I think it's too much fans two 200mm exhaust fans on top, one 120mm on the back, and 2 intake fans one 200mm and one 140mm. I also got the V8 GTS so that helps with air flow around the case. I'm here typing this while my computer keeps going into the startup repair. Reading the solutions to the problem, they all say that it's signs that your hard drive is going out. I just bought this not too long ago. maybe had it for 3 months. wanted to use it for studio recording and gaming. This is very disappointing. Also windows 7 only recognized half of it. It's too large to process all that memory.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggs1 Drive DOA in 40 hours of run time, second drive failed within 30 days.

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

Pros: Inexpensive

Cons: Failed incredibly quickly. Started with horrific drive to drive copy speed, and spiraled into a simple no spin-up/tick.

Other Thoughts: Replaced the drives with HGST NAS drives. 1.5 times the cost, but you get what you pay for. Had an RE4 purchased from newegg fail in a similar time frame. Maybe the packing just needs to be address.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible

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

Pros: Large space

Cons: Horribly slow

Other Thoughts: When cached in NAND, I get speeds of 45+ MB/s. When not, I am getting less than 10 MB/s.
This is on a non UEFI BIOS Motherboard using NTFS formatting on Win 7.

1 out of 5 eggsD.O.A. - Dead On Arrival

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

Pros: Specs and Price

Cons: Dead On Arrival
Paid for Overnight, but RMA Shipping Label provided by Newegg is taking the Return on a 5 Business Day plus the weekend trip across the country before they even evaluate it and send the replacement.

Other Thoughts: I paid for overnight delivery. The RMA should have been overnight too before I even sent the drive back. I would rather have the HGST 4TB now.

1 out of 5 eggsVery Disappointed in Seagate!

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

Pros: All Of The Specifications Of This Hard Drive Should Make It a Beast! The Price Was Phenominal at $159.99 for a 4TB SSHD!

Cons: Hard Drive Showed Up D.O.A. - Dead On Arrival!
After Paying $30+ To Get This Drive and Two Others Overnight last week so I could install it over the weekend, I was highly aggravated and disappointed.
Then, Newegg sends me a return shipping label that is taking this drive on a 5 Business Day plus this weekend coming trip across the country to California before they will even get to evaluate the drive. I paid for overnight, so I should get the replacement overnight no questions asked before I had even shipped this one back. They want us to trust them with our money while they ship us drives but they don't want to believe us and trust us to ship us an RMA right away!

Other Thoughts: I'd rather have another one of these:
