Seagate ST500LM000 500GB 5400 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Laptop Thin SSHD Bare Drive
  • Backed by a 5-year limited warranty
  • Boots and performs like an SSD, PC & Mac Compatible
  • Up to 5x faster than a traditional 5400 RPM HDD
  • Height: 7.00mm
  • $79.99
  • $59.99
  • Save: $20.00 (25%)
  • Free Shipping (restrictions apply)

Pros:

If you are familiar with what an average notebook 5400 rpm speed is like, then be ready for a surprise. The Seagate solid state hybrid hard drive is miles ahead in term of speed. All my applications load I would say about 40%-60% faster. Wait time is non-existent with this hard-drive (literally).

Boot time is about 25 seconds compared to 2 minutes by an average hard drive. Internet explorer load in 10 seconds compared to 1 minute and 30 seconds. My notebook load the wireless connectivity in 15 seconds compared to 2 minutes.

You probably won't believe my stats. No problem, just when you buy it you would be the many witness to its speedy performance.

Cons:

Still technically a hard drive.
