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:

5 out of 5 eggsMakes the perfect Steam drive

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

Pros: Grabbed this on sale specifically to use as my Steam/games drive. The speed is about what you'd expect out of a SATA 6 drive. Time will tell if the built in NAND flash will help me out any.

Cons: Doesn't do my laundry or satisfy the wife.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Value

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

Pros: Once it sees what you do, it decides what to load on the SSD portion and pops it fast. No software to load to interface with stand alone SSD.
Capacity is great. Unless you want to get 8, 480 gb ssd's this is a great compromise on price, space, and efficiency, just what I was looking for!

Cons: None

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.
