3 out of 5 eggsDIED

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST1000DX001 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: It was surprisingly fast compared to regular 7200rpm drives

Cons: Died in less then a year, i bought on Nov 23rd 2013, and it is september 26th 2014

If it had lasted atleast 2years this drive would be a 5star drive with no cons for its price

3 out of 5 eggsIt works

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST1000DX001 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: It's a good hard drive. I've had no problems with it.

Cons: It's not any faster than the normal Seagate hard drives. I was expecting Windows and other apps to load much faster with this drive seeing how the hard drive is always the limiting factor on a good computer. It's not happened. It's no faster than any other computer with the same specs and a normal hard drive.

Other Thoughts: Maybe my expectations were too high or there is some driver I have to install I don't know about. I've seen no noticeable speed increase. The Windows experience index still tests a 5.9 for this hard drive just like it would for a normal one.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far, so good.

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST1000DX001 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: Noticeably faster versus standard drives.

Cons: Didn't come with mounting screws? That isn't even a con because nobody should expect to get screws with their drive when cases come with handfuls of them.

Other Thoughts: I havae 2 of these in a software RAID setup, and I so far can't find anything wrong with them. In hindsight I could have done without the hybrid functionality, as they're being used for a lot of different things and I doubt they'll figure out what and what not to cache. They worked perfectly right out of the box and I had no problems installing. I'm running Windows off a separate SSD so I can't comment on how using a single one of these would pan out.

1 out of 5 eggsAfter 6 months use, meh.

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST1000DX001 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: Nothing really, Just a normal drive.

Cons: I overpaid big time for a 1tb drive that gives no noticeable benefits.

Other Thoughts: Only bought it because I was naive at the time about computer hardware and said "wow SSD like, must be GREAT"

Actaully even has SLOWER read/write then my new WD green drive that I got for the same price but is 3tb...

Manufacturer Response:

Dear John,

If you are not rebooting your Desktop Hybrid drive, we would suggest doing so as it may take a few reboots to notice the full performance benefit of your Desktop Solid State Hybrid drive. This will allow the adaptive memory feature to determine the data that is accessed most frequently and put this data on the high-performing SSD portion of the drive.

If the performance problems persist despite multiple reboots, or if you have additional questions or concerns, please contact our support staff and we will be happy to assist further:

Best Regards,
Seagate Support

3 out of 5 eggsMostly just a standard HDD

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST1000DX001 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: It works and sometimes speed is above average for a HDD.

Cons: Seems like more of a marketing ploy to attract cheapos (like myself) to something "SSD-like".

Other Thoughts: Forget how the drive is marketed and forget about benchmarks. What does the 8gb of flash storage do for me as a heavy PC user of a variety of applications/games? Just going on "feel", not much. Sometimes I notice things speed up like when I have to do multiple reboots in a row or if I am playing one particular game a lot, but 8GB is not much for modern games anyway.

Otherwise, this is a perfectly competent hard drive, but unless your PC time is spent in very specific ways that works with the special part of the drive, you won't see much or any difference in "real world" experiences.

If I could choose what sat on the 8GB of flash storage, I might be able to optimize things for my benefit.

3 out of 5 eggsBetter off with a HDD

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST1000DX001 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: Price was reasonable. Good for an OS drive.

Cons: SMART tests show this drive to fall around 93% in the performance category, and a fitness score to match. While my 6 year old 500 GB Western Digital blue drive has a performance score of 98% and a fitness rating of 94%. Window's also gives the drive a rating of 5.9 while a 1TB Western Digital Black I have in a 5 year old rig receives a rating of 6.3 (not much I know but still sad)

Other Thoughts: I've been avoiding Seagate for years due to major issues with their products in the past, and this most recent purchase has reinforced that behavior.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Kenneth,

To test our drive for health or performance problems, please use our SeaTools diagnostic utility listed below:

4 out of 5 eggsSeagate Hybrid Drive ST1000DX001 1TB

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST1000DX001 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: 1TB of storage with 8GB NAND flash results in very fast operation. The more you use the same programs the faster they get. The Adaptive Memory speeds up your boot time as well as your most used programs.

Cons: Needs more flash memory.

Other Thoughts: Obviously not as fast as an SSD but price to storage ratio cant be beat. They state up to 4x faster than an HDD and that seams about right. Highly recommend this drive.

1 out of 5 eggsNot Working With 8.1

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST1000DX001 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: This SSHD is not working with windows 8.1 and also there is no support from seagate customer support team. I made every possible thing to make it boot up faster but there is no solution. You can make a cold boot around 120 seconds with this. Slower then a normal hdd. With a fresh windows 8.1 install this sshd make your boot up time 12 seconds and after a while you will face it 120 seconds boot time and very slow start ups. Shortly No Support and not working.

Cons: aaa

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Anonymous,

If this drive is not rebooted often, try rebooting more frequently as this will allow the adaptive memory feature to determine the data that is accessed most frequently and put this data on the high performing SSD portion of the drive.

If this does not help, we would like to talk with you by phone to determine the underlying cause and available resolution to the slow boot problem. A support case (#04380886) has been created that will reference your review and our response. If from the US or Canada, our contact number for support is 800-732-4283. If outside of this region, please try us here under Product Support (choose your region):

5 out of 5 eggsBlazing Fast!

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST1000DX001 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: This thing is fast, switching from those standard hdd. My boot up time with Windows 8.1 is roughly 20 seconds. It would've taken me at least a minute and a half with a HDD. With the capacity of a HDD but speed of a SSD, why wouldn't you buy this, its a no brainer!

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: Will definitely be buying another in the near future

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST1000DX001 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: 1TB, works well, and is quiet enough that you won't hear it over your system fans.
The boot performance boost is minor, but noticeable, I say it's worth the few extra bucks compared to a standard spinning hard drive, but don't expect true SSD performance.

Cons: The specs say
"Boots and performs like an SSD",
which is a bit of a reach; you'll see a minor performance boost for booting and any applications you regularly use, but that's the only place you'll get a boost.

Other Thoughts: CPU ** AMD A8-6600K 3.9GHz Quad-Core Processor
MB ** Gigabyte GA-F2A88XN-WIFI Mini ITX FM2+ Motherboard
Ram ** G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-2133 Memory
HD ** Seagate 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Hybrid Internal Hard Drive
Case ** Cooler Master Elite 130 Mini ITX Tower Case
PSU ** Corsair CX 430W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply
DVD ** Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer
OS ** Microsoft Windows 8.1 (OEM)(64-bit)
