1 out of 5 eggsdisaponting!

Pros: bought 3 none worked. My buddy bought 3 all worked. Guess is the luck of the draw.

Cons: Bought 3 all 3 DOA

Other Thoughts: Kind of on the fence on this. Is a 50- 50 chance. Is it worth it to you?

1 out of 5 eggsBad Drive

Pros: no good things to say sorry

Cons: SSD drive I purchased was supposed to have been refurbished but as soon as I installed it. I started getting error codes and it would not take new windows 7 or 8 install. Tried to install the SSD Drive in 2 other laptops but still received a dead code on all tests. Had to return.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't buy refurbished better to buy new

3 out of 5 eggsGood so far, but need firmware update

Pros: Fast after I have run it for a week

Cons: It came with old firmware.

Other Thoughts: For the first few days of installing it, I am hearing constant clicking sound like the clock clicking and thought it was the notorious click of death, and initiate a return request. Before I return, I checked the firmware using Seagate's tool and found out the drive came with old firmware and thus I updated it with the hope to avoid a return. Fortunately, the new firmware solved the clicking problem, and now I am happy with the drive and its performance. For new users of the hybrid drive, please run the drive for several days before you see the huge improvement in speed.

1 out of 5 eggsStay far away

Pros: It's a drive; when it works it's fine.

Cons: First drive made lots of noise -- sounded like a bug zapper. Returned under refurb warranty for a second one, which was quieter (still made zapping noises though) but lasted only about 2 months before failing.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: Fits in place of a standard hard drive

Cons: Total junk: After installing Windows it is slow and constantly gives BSOD and then system reboots and drive is not detected.

Other Thoughts: In theory this technology is great but it does not work. Skip this and just get a real SSD instead.

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.
