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

Pros: Fast boot times.

Cons: Doesn't live very long. Only lasted a little over 1 year of 4-6hrs a day of use.
Difficult to recover files.

Other Thoughts: Bought this thinking that perhaps it would last me a while and be a fairly decent drive... It was very disappointing when toward the beginning of this year my computer locked up when opening larger files/programs... Several tests later and the hard drive completely failed. Had to recover what I could using an external linux boot and even then the drive has so many bad sectors I lost a lot of data. Going to contact manufacture to see recommendations. I used to like Seagate as a whole... but....

5 out of 5 eggsSeagate Hybrid Drive ST2000DX001 2TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

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

Pros: Works great, no issue's at all, speed seems to be good for my online games and others.

Cons: NewEgg uses Canada Post to deliver to Canada, they delivered my item to someone else, it was signed for by someone else and then 10 days later finally got the package. Canada Post kept saying it was delivered barring the fact not to me, but eventuall it did arrive. Please NewEgg allow another method of delivery UPS would be much better. This caused me to do a refund, then to call and have my Credit Card charged again after I did finally get the item. Huge pain, paying for it locally would have bee less painful. Will likely not buy in future because of this.

Other Thoughts: Overall product is great, getting the product on the other hand was a clamity of misdirection to the extreme. Costing me money as I bought a replacement product locally only to then get the item and then pay for it again because refund had been done. NewEgg allow UPS delivery Please...

1 out of 5 eggsSeagate SSHD Lie

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

Pros: None (If I could give it zero eggs, I would).

Cons: Lower performance than 7200 SATA at higher cost.

Other Thoughts: I have never seen such a cynical bait-and-switch conspiracy and operation as that concocted by Seagate and Ubisoft. The “come on” was that SSHD was the best compromise between SSD and HD in speed at a cost closer to HD than SSD. As a “Seagate Gift” I was supposed to get 2 copies of / licenses for Ubisoft’s “Assassin’s Creed Trilogy” (i.e. AC - China, - India, and - Russia). Seagate made it sound like their SSHDs would make gaming mind-blowingly fast from your local HD, and that these games would demonstrate that fact.
UNTRUE:
First, SSHD shows no performance improvement, rather a performance decrease! Even with the system at idle – no user applications open - the SSHD is constantly being accessed by over 40 system functions at a constant 10 megabit / second IO rate while the standard HDs I have show zero I/O. The SSHD appears to require non-stop operating system attention. The “under 10 second” boot of Windows 8.1 is a blatant lie. With the 500 GB Seagate 7200 RPM HD, boot time for my Windows 8.1 workstation from power on until I could access an application from the desktop without the ‘eternal vortex’ next to the mouse pointer, would be roughly 3:30 mins by the stop watch. With a 2 GB Seagate SSHD, it is closer to 3:45 mins, and the HD light never goes out, access never ceases.
As for the “Seagate Gift” games – they are not HD-resident games: they are online games, so how is that supposed to be affected by your HD? Further, the “bundle” is supposed to include three games, but you only get access to one, “Assassin’s Creed – China”. And of the two “product keys” I got (one for each SSHD three-game “gift”), only one was valid!
Application performance (looking at intensive media access applications like Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop, Avid Media Composer….) also shows no noticeable increase in performance. Neither do existing flight simulator games I have on my system.
Could all this be “stupid user” problems? Perhaps. But I do hold a master’s degree in computer science, and have been active in the field (primarily in real-time aerospace applications) since the mid-1970s, so I am not completely in the dark with respect to hardware operation and monitoring of hardware-software-firmware interaction. Based on information I can cull from various system performance and monitoring tools, SSHD (at least Seagate’s implementation) is bogus technology. I.e., it makes for wonderful “marketdroid” speeches and promos, but scientifically, factually, it appears to, at best, be no different than quality 7200 RPM SATA drive with 64 – 128 MB of and more probably is slightly lower performance in the final analysis.
So, if you are lusting for the performance of SSD, but can’t yet justify the cost, DON’T FALL FOR THE SSHD PERFORMANCE PITCH –IT’S A COMPLETE LIE!! Use the extra money to buy a larger capacity / cache standard 7200 rpm SATA drive.

4 out of 5 eggsSeems Decent

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

Pros: 2TB at a fair cost.
after only a few days it's prioritized some files and is running much faster than my original drive.

Cons: it whistles; I hear this drive running when the computers on and it's annoying. it's not loud, but louder than anything else in my rig.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Michael,

It would be unusual for this drive to make whistling noises. Please test the drive using SeaTools to check the drive health:

Also, please verify that the drive is mounted correctly in your Desktop system.

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

1 out of 5 eggsThis one is dead too

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

Pros: I wish i could know how good this piece of equipment is

Cons: Came dead out of the box, not responding to anything, really sad because i needed my computer as soon as possible but now have to wait longer.
extra- Tried different cables and computers with non it responded

Other Thoughts: I'm guessing this is a recent bad batch on the Seagate part since I have bought other products from them and worked out of the box. But for right now this is the score it deserves

2 out of 5 eggsDOA, Twice

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

Pros: I have purchased many of these drives with no problems, they were fast and functional, until this last time that is-

Cons: Bought the drive, it arrived dead. Spent money on the shipping for the replacement, the new one comes in and is also DOA. One time, I could understand, but twice? Really?

4 out of 5 eggsSo Far So Good

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

Pros: Best of both worlds, SSHD like performance without the high price, More capacity for your money then a regular SSHD, Easy installation with Win 7 64bit

Cons: None noted yet but I avoided migrating Windows over to this drive after reading the reviews saying the drive had problems after a short period of time so its just holding my games right now

Other Thoughts: If I dont run into the issues that some other customers have mentioned then I am very satisfied with the product

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

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

Pros: Dont know

Cons: Dead on Arrival.

I had to build my new computer piecemeal over the last 3 months. I bought this one hybrid drive thinking I could use it for storage. Finally got the last parts of my computer and attempted to install this and lo and behold. Dead. Will not spin up or even vibrate like its attempting to.

The SSD that I got works fine and even tried swapping out the power cords and sata cables that the ssd was using. Nothing.

Other Thoughts: Very sad about all this ...

1 out of 5 eggsComplete junk

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

Pros: Can't think of any other than it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Cons: Slow, unreliable, now I'd had to disassemble my computer and send it back to Seagate and wait for a replacement. Of course, I'll have zero confidence in the replacement.

Other Thoughts: Bought this for a HTPC build, seemed like an interesting option for storage. When trying to install the OS, the first clue that a problem was imminent that it was PAINFULLY slow. Took far too long to install the OS. Once it was installed, the brand new (every component) system was a complete dog. Click, wait.....wait.....wait..... Here I am a couple of months later, and its dead. System doesn't recognize the drive. Put it in another computer, instant instability and unhappiness in the other system.

Would not recommend or buy again. Sadly, I didn't figure out what the problem was until AFTER the 30 day return period, so now I'll be stuck with a replacement of the same junk. Wish I had bought something else.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Steven,
