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 easy to install at first

Cons: after 30 day my drive had clicking sounds I have never bumped it or dropped it or anything. we shut the computer down and restarted it. the clicking stopped and so did the drive. it seems like the disk is spinning but its now not showing up on the computer. we have tried almost everything to get it back up. so yea less then 60 days of working and my files lost and money lost.

1 out of 5 eggsWorks great when it works, until it decides to stop randomly.

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

Pros: - Price
- Nice speeds and load times when it worked
- Lots of space

Cons: - Stopped working after only 3 months

Other Thoughts: - I bought this as an alternative to a standard HDD, since the technology behind them is getting rather outdated. When I first started using it, I was impressed with the performance of this drive. I was able to load up plenty of games, files, and photos without too much of a delay.

However, the drive recently decided it was done with working, so it just randomly quit. Now whenever I try to log on, my computer randomly freezes constantly. I can't access my remaining files to back them up, and the drive doesn't even tell me that there is something wrong with it. I can't even access my MoBo's BIOS without having to disconect this piece of garbage. People shouldn't have to worry about their Drives crashing on them if they're still relatively new. And Seagate has seldom contacted me in regards to the warranty. Bad product, and horrible customer service. I will never buy another Seagate product until they learn how to make better, more reliable products.

5 out of 5 eggsThe best solution for single-drive machines and older systems.

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

Pros: - Huge speed increases over mechanical drives
- Same storage options as mechanical drives
- No drivers, no fuss, no management. Perfect for non-enthusiasts and budget builds.

Cons: - 8GB SSD is small by today's standards, especially with storage reaching 2TB+

Other Thoughts: These drives are perfect for your average workstation or budget computer build. They give a massive boost to Window's boot and commonly used applications. I've been using these in all my single-drive builds because you cannot beat the price/performance/storage ratio. They also breathe new life into older systems (Vista and XP) and servers and allow them to boot up quickly without requiring TRIM support on the operating system. Only real complaint has been addressed with the next generation, being the 8GB of SSD memory. With the size of Windows and even something like Office the drive is sacrificing too much in order to load the most used files into 8GB of SSD cache.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product and price

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

Pros: Purchased on 3-23 and so far so good....This SSHD is as fast as the SSD 850 evo 250gb...I turn both desktop computers on at the same time and the SSHD loads up about 2 to 5 seconds faster than the SSD.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: This product is very easy to install and use....I would highly recommend this sshd over the Samsung SSD as the price is about a third of the ssd and if you ever want to format the ssd you will have problems.

5 out of 5 eggsI believe in SSHD's

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

Pros: Faster than my old 7200 RPM drive. Win7 boots much quicker now (after multiple restarts). The games I play load quicker. Cheap per gigabyte. Good warranty. 64 meg cache. Works in an old Crosshair I motherboard.

Cons: None for my situation.

Other Thoughts: Replaced a failing 7200 RPM drive in an old Asus Crosshair AMD Phenom 940 3.0ghz 8800gtx in sli I keep as my office computer. (I spend all my money and time on my wife, kids' college funds and retirement now.. Otherwise I'd buy an SSD!)

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent alternative to a pricey SSD

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

Pros: This is the 3rd Seagate hybrid drive I've owned and the first 3.5" one (the others are older from when Seagate called these the Momentus XT line and they were all 2.5" drives).

Performance is excellent. After a couple days of typical use, the speed difference when starting windows and opening programs is dramatic vs a traditional HDD. Modern games with typically long loading times benefit greatly. In most cases my loading times were less than half vs a standard 7200rpm drive which is excellent. This is the case with Fallout 4, Dragon Age Inquisition, Civilization V and GTA V, to name some examples.

I do freelance audio mixing and production and frequently work with large projects in Pro Tools 11 with dozens of tracks and plugins. With some projects containing upwards of 10gb of raw .WAV files, it would sometimes take a full minute or more just to open a song to resume working, and this was on a powerful system. With the hybrid drive, after opening a song once or twice to work on it, Pro Tools will be ready to go within seconds. That makes a huge difference for me with how frequently I need to open different projects.

Reliability seems excellent as well. I have had no issues of any kind with this one or my older ones which have been in near constant use for several years now.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I went out on a limb and bought a Seagate Momentus XT 750gb SSHD several years ago, hoping to see a nice speed boost in everyday use but not really knowing what to expect. Seagate delivered on all of their claims and I fully expect I'll buy more of these eventually.

For people like me who simply can't justify spending hundreds just to get a real SSD with more than a paltry 250gb of storage, this is it. This is what you've been looking for.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed.

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

Pros: price

Cons: product failed on 4/5/16, within warranty, but guess what? seagate wants you to either pay them to send you correct packaging to return it(along with replacement) - ~$12, or BUY YOUR OWN correct packaging (static bag, foam holder etc), AND pay shipping.
With a warranty like that, what's the point? (other than discouraging warranty returns)
I probably won't be returning the product because I don't want it to cost me MORE money and time than it already did.
Seagate- if your product fails, cover the costs! Make it easy.

Buying a WD hd replacement. Don't count on the warranty unless you're willing to pay more when the hardware you pay for breaks.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Snappy

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

Pros: Fast and Cheap speeds of upto 150mb/sec

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: I build computers and this is what I use for my clients, I just put one in mine I was a little too stubborn for non ssd but it sure is great. Load times on games I had on my 750 HDD have more then cut in half. Buying more.

5 out of 5 eggsWould Buy Again

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

Pros: - Fast Boot Up Times after a few weeks of usage and the drive "learning" my system.
* Win10 with SSHD bootup = 30sec
* Same system booting up off of my cloned backup HDD = 2'30"
- 7200 RPM

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I had an SSD with my older WinXP computer. From what I have read, WinXP does not manage the SSD "Wear Leveling" like Win7 or higher can. Eventually my SSD started having problems and I replaced it with an HDD because I decided to make a new PC with Win10 using this SSHD. I am hoping that this Seagate SSHD does a good job of putting the files which are frequently read on the flash memory and leaving the files frequently written on the HDD part of this drive.
