5 out of 5 eggsIncredible speed boost

Pros: An exceptional speed boost for the average user. The drive "learns" what you access most, and caches it to the NAND flash. So performance gets a massive boost with this technology.

We use these for HUNDREDS of repairs for clients, and have been very pleased with them.

Cons: the 5400rpm speed is the biggest bottle-neck in terms of performance.. While the unit is GREAT for certain 'instant" processes (like booting or opening an app, it takes A LONG LONG time to copy large data files to/from this drive.

Other Thoughts: To get the most out of this drive, install it, then do a fresh OS on your system (even if you're on a Mac, trust me and do a fresh OS). Then defrag your new drive.

THEN reboot your machine, repeatedly.. 4 or 5 times.

Believe me, it'll make a difference.. the drive has to learn what you're doing most, then it'll cache the correct stuff..

We use these drives so much we buy in bulk. they're great.. Not perfect, but good..

Personally, I use a straight SSD for my laptop, but have an SSHD (the 3.5" version of this drive) in my desktop.. a touch slower than my laptop, but it's bearable...

5 out of 5 eggsTrusty little drives

Pros: These hybrid drives are great for laptops. Generally speaking laptops do not require the large hard drive you would want on your desktop, and you want the speed of an SSD. Well, here, you can it your way.

Cons: I really wish the caching routines could be better programmed. The access speed could be enhanced it they could be accessed by preset utility.

Other Thoughts: Most of my clients want more drive space than 120GB, and they really want the faster hard drive speed, so here is a solution which givees both at a reasonable price.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Dirves

Pros: Great drives. Put one in a HP EliteBook 8530W and another in an ASUS Laptop (K55A). Both install without issue. Drive work as described and improve boot times considerable. Much faster than standard 72K drive but not quite SSD speed. Over performance improvement is good.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: In general Newegg has considerably improved hard drive packaging over the years. Years ago I limited my purchasing of hard drive from Newegg to only personal, because I could not count on the drive not being damaged in shipping. Today, Newegg packages 3.5 inch drives in packaging that meets or exceeds HP spec. Having made this packaging change, the last 30 C3s I purchased from Newegg install in my work servers without issue. So, I was surprised to see this drive, tossed in a large box with other components and only a foil bag for protection. Having had to RMA several drives in the past that were damaged in shipping, I was happily surprised when both worked.

1 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: Very few

Cons: Boasts having 5X's the speed of a traditional 5400 HDD. Ever since install of Windows 8.1 Pro 64, I have had nothing but problems. Slow speed, windows files disappearing. Even trying to do a system refresh and having my windows 8 state it does not recognize my win 8 disk!! Have had to do two clean installs and the problems still persist.

Other Thoughts: Granted this was a refurb drive and I knew that when I bought it. but I've never had this problem with a refurb in the past or a hybrid drive being this slow for that matter! I am currently backing up my files to a sata II drive that has faster read/write speeds then this newer drive!
