4 out of 5 eggs you have to "train" the hybrid drive to get the benefit 10/01/2013

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drives ST1000LM014 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 2.5" Laptop SSHD -Bare Drive

Pros:

massive 1TB capacity
fast when the app is "cached" into NAND

Cons:

wish NAND is not limited to 8GB
the platter speed is still 5400RPM (same speed as other 5400RPM HDD if you transfer huge files

Other Thoughts:

Bought the drive from Newegg because I get a nice discount and give it a try. First time booting the speed has no difference, but after a couple of times of shutdown/startup, the speed of startup gets significantly faster, so the hard drive is constantly learning your usage habit, and put the most frequent using applications to NAND, so you need to "train" the hard drive to open and close the applications you want to run on NAND. After the training, FireFox starts immediately.
But I found the speed isn't faster than other 5400RPM hard drive when I transfer around 200GB stuff from old hard drive.
The bottom line is, the internal NAND helps starting up as well as applications you often use, but don't expect any miracle for massive file transfer.
