2 out of 5 eggsBe wary

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

Pros: Decent enough drive, I set two of these up as a RAID1 data volume in my desktop. Performance doesn't seem to really be much better than any other 2TB HDD I've used in the past.

Cons: Like others have mentioned these drives have a problem with reliability. I bought these in January and by August one of them already failed. Hopefully seagate will replace it since it's barely over 6 months old.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible purchase

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

Pros: Shiny metal

Cons: Everything. 4 disks ordered, all of them DOA.

Other Thoughts: I purchased 4 disks, planning to install them in various desktops around my home as time permitted. HUGE mistake, as all 4 are DOA in exactly the same way. UEFI/BIOS of machines / USB enclosure sees the disks, but as soon as any of my machines (different manufacturers / models etc) try accessing, the drives "vanish" from UEFI/BIOS. Linux shows a ton of I/O Sense errors for about 5 seconds before drive falls.

Since I delayed more than a month in installing these, I now have to file RMA with seagate directly, stuffing me with cost of shipping AND only getting back refurbs! Horribly ticked off, completely opposite what I had trusted seagate for.

STAY AWAY FROM THESE DRIVES.

4 out of 5 eggsSeems to be fine ...

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

Pros: -Average to above average normal HDD transfer rates
-Above average boot times
-2TB is nice
-Neat system of optimizing most frequently used data

Cons: -Only 8gb of solid state (Seriously Seagate, 16 would be a solid number but 8 is a bit weak.)
-Apparent reliability/stability issues? (see comments)

Other Thoughts: Drive seems good overall. Good transfer rates, boot time is noticeably decreased after you reboot about 10 times. I would LOVE to have this drive with 16 gigs of SSD space instead of 8.

As for reliability issues? I've had it about 2 months as part of a new system, and at first I thought it was causing crashes and experiencing the same problems everybody else had, but after swapping my old drive back in, I found it was an instability in my overclock. I still haven't been able to resolve that issue, though I've made it better, so it is *possible* that the drive is having/causing problems, and it's just masked along side the problems with my motherboard. So far though, it seems to have been operating great with no obvious problems.

1 out of 5 eggsSeagate 2 TB Hybrid hard drive

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

Pros: Reasonably fast drive
Good price

Cons: Didn't even last six months

Other Thoughts: Bought this drive on 3/18/2014 from New Egg. Probably arrived a week later and was installed by the end of March. It isn't even being recognized by my PC on August 6, 2014. Recently had an external Seagate 3 TB drive go bad and the Seagate website said the warranty had run out on it. It was one of my newest drives. What the hell has happened to Seagate drives?????

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

Pros: Sounded like a good SSHD. But...

Cons: The 2TB Seagate Drive was working ok at first then after 3 weeks it failed. The drive would only show 1TB in BIOS. I tested it in a second computer and still found the same problem. I'm not happy about it the drive was setup as backup storage

Other Thoughts: .

Manufacturer Response:

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.

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,

We apologize for the problems experienced with your Desktop Solid State Hybrid drive. Certainly it is not typical or expected for these drives to behave this way.
