1 out of 5 eggsMy experience not good with SSHD

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

Pros: When it was working in the first few days while it was alive, it was vantastic fast on boot up.

Cons: It lasted 4 days and died.Win7 would not reconise it as a boot drive and I could not even get windows to reconise it as just an added drive.

Other Thoughts: I quess I should have taken the reviews a little more seriously about them dieing. I have been using seagate drives for a few years and thought they were pretty good. So I thought I would try this SSHD drive. It's ashame that I got all of my programs installed and all of my data transfered and was down to putting the cover back on when this died.
I wonder if I would bill Seagate for the time I had in this whether they would pay me or not.

Sorry Seagate I whet with another brand and a straight HD.

Wayne

5 out of 5 eggsWow, Awesome!

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

Pros: Super fast write and read speed. Massive amount of space. Great Bargain!

Cons: None after using it for 6 months

Other Thoughts: Wish I had bought more, but, I couldn't afford it back when I bought this. This is a great alternative to a large SSD, as it has loads of space, and is super fast!

5 out of 5 eggsDelivers as Promised

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

Pros: Huge storage space. Fast data access rate compared to standard HDDs. Standard (easy) install with no extras needed.

Cons: Not as fast as an SSD. Does not make waffles.

Other Thoughts: This product is a compromise product. You don't get SSD speeds, but you do get fast (ish) speeds, lots of storage, and a reasonable price. Good purchase if it fits your needs.

5 out of 5 eggsCorrection of my review "Problem with TrueImage"

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

Pros: Apparently the problem with TrueImage is not with the drive. It may be with the motherboard. Sorry for the confusion.

Cons: No cons, except combining a normal hard drive with a SSD is new technology. Hopefully, there won't be problems.

3 out of 5 eggsProblem with TrueImage

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

Pros: Seems to be fast

Cons: Works fine except Acronis TrueImage won't load, but keeps re-booting, where all 23 of my other drives have no trouble. My guess is because this is a hybrid which TrueImage isn't set up for (I'm notifying Acronis of this). While Acronis Disk Director Safe Mode sees the partitions fine and can explore them, the full Disk Director gives "E000101F4: Acronis Disk Director Suite has not found any hard disk drives". Since TrueImage is essential to me, I'll have to use this as a non-system drive

Other Thoughts: Hope the hybrid HD is perfected

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

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

Pros: Built in SSD makes this a fast drive with high capacity. It is a great middle of the road drive for those looking for a little more performance but cannot afford the higher SSDs.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: You may see some speed fluctuations over time as you change how you use your computer. The SSD starts memorizing your usage patterns and stores the information in a cache. As you change your patterns, it has to re-learn. Not an issue, but it's something I noticed.

2 out of 5 eggsDead after barely past 1 year

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

Pros: Didn't run bad while it was in working order.

Cons: Purchased on 12/13/2013 - Dead on 12-19-2014.

Other Thoughts: I had shutdown the computer this drive was located in, added another drive to the case and went to reboot the system and found I had no power to the drive. After troubleshooting the issue, I would seem something on the mainboard died which rendered the drive useless. $900 later for data recovery... Still awaiting word that the data has been recovered. Make sure your data is backed up no matter what!

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great! Solid drive

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

Pros: Fast, easy to install, plenty of storage space.

Cons: Don't expect the speed of an SSD.

Other Thoughts: Even though it's a hybrid, an SSD would still be faster. But it's definitely worth the price for slightly increased speed and the amount of storage you get with it.

I have had no problems installing anything or storing anything on this drive.

1 out of 5 eggssshd fail

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

Pros: SSHD sounded good...

Cons: I went through 4 of these that were DOA and one good one that is so far still running 30 days in...also bought from multiple vendors. Switched to a WD Black which is where I will stay from now on for data storage drives.

Other Thoughts: I love Newegg but I also had to pay shipping to return defective product...Another online vendor did free shipping and credited the next day. Just be aware so you can manage your own expectations

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Bang 4 Buck

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

Pros: Good performance at an affordable price!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Migrated Windows 7 64-bit from a Seagate Barracuda IV @ 7200 RPMs to this hard drive. This drive did NOT disappoint!! Boots up faster then the previous drive and loads applications fast! Happy with price and performance of this drive.

Had original drive partitioned into two logical drives (C, D). I took an image of orginal disk (took 6 hours for image to complete) using NGhost15 and imaged the ST2000DX001 with it. After restoring the image the new drive. First system bootup with new drive, Windows crashed. Two files were missing or corrupt. I used the OS installation disk to run repair and fix the issue. After that the computer was booting perfectly, no issues.

To take full advantage of the hybrid drive, SATA controller must be set to AHCI. It will still run with Legacy or IDE enabled, but not to its full speed.

If you have Windows installed and would like to migrate it and your SATA controller is set to legacy or IDE and you would like to swtich it to AHCI:

-open windows registry
-go to HKEY_Local_Machine\System\CurrentControlSet
-Find Services and expand it
-Find msahci
-Right click Start (REG_DWORD) and select modify
-Change the value from 0 to 3
-Exit registry

Finally, The 2TB version of the drive performs better than the 1TB one. I bought both of them and been benchmarking them. The 2TB drive will boot windows in 49 seconds while the 1TB will boot in 1.2 minutes.
