4 out of 5 eggsOver 6 months in, still running well

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST2000DX001 2TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: They've been reliable the price wasn't bad when i bought them

Cons: Not a whole lot faster then other 7200 rpm drives I've had

Other Thoughts: I have 2 of these in raid 0 as my data drive, owned since dec, no issues so far, they don't seem that much faster then a normal hdd but then again i have a Samsung 840pro for my boot drive which makes any normal hdd seem snail paced.

1 out of 5 eggsDeleted my Files!

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST2000DX001 2TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

2 out of 5 eggsPoor Life expectancy

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST2000DX001 2TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: Good boot times after it learns what files are read most frequently

Cons: Terrible Life expectancy -- died within 6 months

Other Thoughts: I have no idea what to do with this thing. It simply died one day. I'm praying I can recover the code I've written the past few months. I expected the drive to last far longer than this, and I have NO plans to put another hybrid in until I'm sure Seagate has their quality back to normal again.

And since I swapped the main computer drive to a hybrid, based on the 5 month success of this, I have to UNupgrade that machine as well, and soon.

Hybrid should be simple and should last as long as a regular drive. It's not even coming close. I will go back to my WD drives; they at least function.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Allen,

5 out of 5 eggsFast

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST2000DX001 2TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: Prioritization, load times, space-to-price ratio, and the general speed are choice about it. I use it as a game library and to house some chunky programs and I've noticed a remarkable difference vs my old gaming HDD. This is so great that I can see myself buying another in the very near future.

Cons: None that I've noticed thus far.

Other Thoughts: Put your Steam and Origin libraries in there and notice a remarkable difference vs an HDD with 10,000RPM. Also, this is great for screwless installations. It literally took less than 30 seconds to install and plug in.

2 out of 5 eggsPiece of junk

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST2000DX001 2TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: -Looks like a hard drive
-Good value if it would always work

Cons: -Very unreliable service (it's a flip of a coin in terms of whether Windows/BIOS will recognize it during each boot). Sometimes it gets recognized and then "lost"
-Works intermittently

Other Thoughts: SATA cable is fine. POWER is fine. Tried a perfect working SATA and POWER for my other SSD that was previously powered. This is pure junk.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Ashim,

We apologize for the problems experienced with your Desktop Solid State Hybrid drive. Please verify your BIOS setting for the controller is setup as AHCI.

If this suggestion does not help, or you have additional questions or concerns, please contact our support staff and we will be happy to assist further:

4 out of 5 eggsNot Buying Standard HDDs Anymore

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST2000DX001 2TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: -Great boot up times
-Prioritizes mostly used applications (including OS boot!)
-Fast read/write
-Cheaper than SSD

Cons: -None

Other Thoughts: I initially went with this because purchasing a SSD for boot/games and a HDD for everything else seemed unnecessary. Since my usage of this, I am sure I will never go back to a standard HDD. This product is great and cache's the applications you use the most in order to load them up significantly faster. It would be nice to see this tech advance in using a larger flash size. Until SSDs come down in price, this is definitely the choice to go with.

1 out of 5 eggsAdd my name to the DOA list...

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST2000DX001 2TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: Specs on the drive are great, wonderful compromise between SSD speed and HDD price, relatively quiet during POST, NewEgg great with the RMA process.

Cons: Like many others, my drive came DOA -- good ol' click of death upon first insertion into my PC. Since I have a couple desktop PC's around the house, I tried the drive in all of them (just to be sure it wasn't the machine, SATA cable, etc.). Am currently awaiting a replacement drive from Newegg.ca - hopefully this one isn't DOA!!

Other Thoughts: The $20 to return the drive for replacement means that I could have / should have just spent the extra $$ up front to purchase from a local PC shop or retailer. I will up my Egg rating if the replacement drive comes in and is functional

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Benjamin,

We apologize for the problems experienced with your Desktop Solid State drive. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your replacement drive, please contact us directly so we may assist. Listed below is our contact information:

5 out of 5 eggsGood Hybrid-drive choice

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST2000DX001 2TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: 2TB capacity w/ 8Gb SSD cache, great speed. Seagate quality

Cons: none yet

Other Thoughts: I use 2x 2TB drives on my system, one for apps and one for data storage. This 2TB hybrid I use for the boot drive of my pc (Win7 pro 64), I did install defraggler, but have not ever defragged the drive. After running a month, playing games (FSX, Minecraft etc) the drive is only about 15% full and only 2% fragmentation. Still runs at same speed it started at.
Highly reccomend this drive.

3 out of 5 eggsWorked great, but...

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST2000DX001 2TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: Worked great when I first got it. Used for win8.1 installation, and pc booted up faster than I'd ever seen (<10 sec from end of bios to win8 login screen).

Cons: Now, 5 months later, some issues are creeping in. About 25% of the time, the PC doesn't boot - after bios startup, the drive LED comes on solid and stays that way forever, with nothing else happening. Power off/on and it usually is ok the 2nd (or sometimes 3rd) try. Still have win7 on another standard hard drive, and it always boots flawlessly, so the problem appears to be with the drive, not with the pc.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear William S.,

We would recommend first testing our drive with our Seatools diagnostics to check for any problems with the drive itself. Here is a link to this utility:

Please try the drive on a different controller and reseat data and power cables as well.

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

Seagate Support
