5 out of 5 eggsHave alot of these drives

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 7 boys. All hard core gamers. I use these drives in there rigs and have a lot of them in both the 1 tb and 2 tb formats. I've had zero issues with them. Looking at the reviews I may be one of the lucky ones but the drives were all bought over a span of 2 yrs and not together. No issues.

Cons: None. Good solid drive. No issues. No errors. No failures in over 2 years on ANY of them.

Other Thoughts: If you want speed buy an SSD. These drives are a compromise but a good value. They are faster then a normal platter drive but will never be as good as a full SSD. If you have only a normal platter drive now, these drives are a big step up and will increase your traffic speed by a good margin, depending on your motherboard.

5 out of 5 eggsLots of storage - 2TB

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

Pros: Lots of storage for now. Install in iMac 2011 was OK.

Cons: I have had it for a few days and restarted the mac several times but not noticing any speed improvement yet. Still getting spinning colored wheels when loading iMovie and iPhoto. Time will tell.

Other Thoughts: I got this drive to replace a 500GB iMac mid 2011 hard drive which was getting full of videos and photos and only had 1GB left. I did some research on replacing the drive and replaced it in no time. I used Disk Utility to clone the entire drive and it worked great. Swapping the disk was a little tough but doable. I then had to download the free HDDFanControl ap to slowdown the fan.

1 out of 5 eggsDead after one year or so

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

Pros: Fast good enough to what I use it for.

Cons: Just drop dead, no signs of wearing out, no clicking, just drop dead after a year. All my projects my resume everything all gone!

Other Thoughts: I don't game a lot, my desktop barely moved the first day this hard drive was installed. Why just die on me without any warning? I want all my files back!

4 out of 5 eggs2TB SSHD

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

Pros: Easy install, good results, lots of space.
Like Newegg's new HDD packaging; very nice.

Cons: Nothing yet. We'll see in a year or two.

Other Thoughts: Reading other reviews and sites indicates that any drive manufacturer can have problem units. Individual experience is not enough to establish a statistically valid trend, more than 50,000 hours of use is needed to establish any sort of statistical reliability estimate.

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 doesn't blue screen and make a buzzing sound then go blue screen it works great and fast :)

Cons: OK,so i have read some of the reviews and it is obvious we are all having the same problem with blue screen of death.I have installed Operating Sytem at least 7 times and it works for a while then it blue screens i have even tried another drive to make sure it wasnt the motherboard i have (msiG45 gamingchipset z87).This drive is flawed it really scared me as i spent over two thousand dollars in febuary this year building this gaming rig.So it upsets me that the hard drive doesnt work right?To all you people having trouble with this drive i feel your pain,Quality control should have not let our drives out of the factory!!!

5 out of 5 eggsawesome sauce

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

Pros: I was able to pick this hard drive up on a sale for 100 dollars . At the time it was the same price as a regular HDD.

Cons: When I first tested it out the Hard drive had a hiccup and stopped working. I had to rebut the computer and run some tests but after a couple of tries I got it to come back on and it has worked great ever since.

4 out of 5 eggsWorking great for a year now

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

Pros: Works as fast as my SSD drive when loading into a popular MMO game. Takes almost twice as long with a standard hard drive. Although this is after the data as been cached to the SSD portion of this drive.

Cons: None except today while copying a 80 GB file to an external drive, the drive disappeared from the system. I had to power down the computer to get the drive to work again.

Other Thoughts: I am hoping this is a fluke. I decided to make a full backup of the drive just in case.
My internal drives fairly cooled, and rarely run over 35C deg. Most of the time they sit between 30-33C
This is my secondary drive in the system. I boot off a 120GB SSD drive and use this for loading mostly programs or games.
I really loved the concept of a large cache for a hard drive, and when I saw this drive I had to give it a try. In a way I am really impressed that it has lasted this long. I think I would have been more keen of a ram cache instead of a static cache with the current issues of writing to SSD drives. I will be even more impressed if it makes It to the 3 year warranty.
With my 30+ years of computer experience, I swear that I have replaced more hard drives than any other parts of a computer.
This is the right way to go with hard drives for the cost of improving performance, and removing some mechanical wear and tear. New if they can fix the SSD (write) wearing out issues.
