2 out of 5 eggsGood while it lasted

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

Pros: Has great capacity, quicker than a tradition HDD.

Cons: I purchased this drive on 12/24/13. Started to show ominous signs within a year of purchase. See other thoughts for a more detailed explanation.

Other Thoughts: I bought this hybrid drive mainly for storage. At the 10 month mark is when it first started to act up. My computer wouldnt recongize it. I initially thought it was a bad sata cable, so I switched it out and much to my relief, it was back. This happened again 2 months later, I switched out the cables once again... showed back up again. Between the 12 month mark and 18 month mark, it would randomly just "lose connection". I would open up the case and pull the cable out and back in again. This process worked until 3 weeks ago. Much to my dismay I believe the drive is gone for good now. Lost all of my pictures and files.

I may have just gotten a bad drive. If you do decide to purchase one, you may want to purchase a warranty or have an additional external drive to back everything into. Very redundant... this is the first had drive of any kind that has every died on me. My sony 2 gb harddrive from 17 years ago still works till this day.

5 out of 5 eggsJust works

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

Pros: 1 Tb storage; ease of installation; acelleration of pc.

Cons: None, so far.

Other Thoughts: I am used to unforeseen problems with new storage; it always ends up working, but I have to figure out how to get around microsoft. This drive was initialized, cloned, and ready to go in a few minutes, using the supplied software. I have no bench marks, but it seems that my computer is noticeably faster.

1 out of 5 eggsFail.

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

Pros: Install was a breeze, included software made a quick image type transfer to the new drive.

Disk marginally faster than the old one, but not as much as I'd hoped.

Cons: It's been just a little over a year and it's dead.

"The drive found 64 bad sectors during its self test.
There are 64 weak sectors found on the disk surface. They may be remapped any time in the later use of the disk.
223 errors occured during data transfer. This may indicate problem of the device or with data/power cables. Problems occurred between the communication of the disk and the host 104 times."

Only happened to notice this as the machine began freezing up. How much damage has been done to the data? No idea. Will need to restore from backup and start an RMA with Seagate for this disk.

So it's just a shade faster than a regular drive and it dies in just over a year? Yeah, sign me up for two... :-S

Other Thoughts: I hope the new one under return works better. Tell you what, it's not going anywhere near anything important datawise, that's for sure.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet and fast!

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

Pros: - Quiet boot up.
- Quicker than a normal hard drive.
- Great upgrade from a factory drive!
- Price is good for this little wonder.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Compared to my last hard drive this one is pretty fast! It's not as fast as my boyfriend's SSD, but it still loads up faster than a normal HD. I definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to upgrade their factory hard drive to something a bit faster, but not out of range of their computer hardware.

4 out of 5 eggsFantastic Drive

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

Pros: 1 TB HDD + 8GB SSD? It's an amazing storage drive. I don't use it as my main drive. I install larger programs in it, and it works amazingly for this purpose.

Cons: Wish there was more SSD storage in this drive.

Other Thoughts: I have an SSD as my boot drive and this as my secondary storage drive, and it works great for this purpose. I'm considering getting another one for more storage and would not change it.

1 out of 5 eggsErupted in Flames After 15 Months

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

Pros: It boots nearly as quickly as the SSD I bought to replace it.

Cons: It erupted in flames after 15 months of use for seemingly no reason.

Other Thoughts: I'm just glad it didn't damaged anything else more than cosmetically.

1 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: Original cost was reasonable.

Relatively quiet.

Cons: Not reliable.

Very slow boot up on Windows OS.

Have corrupted data on my system.

Other Thoughts: I have used other Seagate Hybrid drives on desktops and laptops with good success.

I wanted more space, so I bought this one on sale and replaced a smaller capacity Seagate Hybrid drive.

Immediately, I noticed that it took a long time for the drive to get to the Windows splash screen. My other dirves took about 15 seconds, and this drive takes 45 seconds. I changed cables, tried different motherboard channels but nothing improved. I ran the drive for several months and then I started getting corrupted files. Fortunately, I make regular backups so I took this drive out and replaced it with a WD drive that I had used in the past. The WD drive got me back to the performance that I was accustomed to.

I think I just got a bad drive, but this experience makes me reluctant to try another hybrid drive from Seagate.

I will be contacting Seagate about a replacement, but I'm not sure I want to use it as my primary drive due to reliability issues.

I have been building and working on computers for years, and I have only had one other hard drive failure, and it was a Seagate that was DOA.

I think the hybrid technology is a good idea, but with SSD prices dropping, it's probably not worth the risk of the high failure rate that these drives seem to experience.
