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:

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.

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:

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:

3 out of 5 eggs8th Month Death

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

Pros: This boot-drive died slowly - which seemed odd for an HDD - they tend to work or not, and I didn't recognize the slow-death warning signs as belonging to this Hybrid HDD. But I appreciated it - now if the others will 'die' this way, I'll have a few days of certain data-backups.

Cons: All equipment has an end-of-life. The HDDs responsiveness of these hybrids doesn't seem remarkable compared to 7200rpm drives as large files are transferred - that's where their 5900rpms fail against those higher=speed spinners. These might be effective in a single-drive computer that don't need file-transfers often.

Other Thoughts: This unit (one out of 14) died by locking up Win8.0 screens for a few days. This unit was left idle during lunch times, and the user would return to find his screen frozen, mouse unresponsive, and no keyboard activity was recognized. RESET or Hard Power Downs was the only solution. This happened for a week, intermittently. Then finally, the PC wouldn't POST, and BIOS wasn't accessible. Dead Motherboard? CPU? Memory? No - it was removing this Hybrid Seagate and replacing it with any other HDD, and the computer lived again.

This slow-death-with-warning was nice in a way, as opposed to no warning, no chance for one last backup. It was nice to have a warning, but the user wished he'd have recognized these symptoms as an HDD death-knell.

Now, we'll get to see what a Seagate Warranty Process is like.

2 out of 5 eggsRuns great but doesn't last...

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

Pros: Runs fast but doesn't last long.

Cons: Doesn't last long... Had this twice and only last few months then ran into problem. Tried everything to repair this HDD and had it replaced once and now going to replace twice.

The first one had frequently noise from time to time such as HDD screaming for no reason. The 2nd time, it only scream once or twice but usually quiet. Love the small size that works on PC. Wouldn't recommend on laptop for fear of crash. No, it didn't crash but ran into problem with several things that I couldn't narrow it down. So I replaced regular HDD such as Western Digital, it solved all problem. WD has true image that I was able to download and clone easily.

Other Thoughts: Love the concept of hybrid with small SDD with regular SATA

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: ...looks like a hard drive...

Cons: Arrived DOA - Should have paid better attention to the reviews, there are a lot of DOAs for this hard drive. Already have a RMA for it...

Other Thoughts: Luckily I had a previous hard drive I could use until this gets replaced. It would have been incredibly frustrating if this was a new build for me and had to put it on hold for this expensive paperweight.
