Pros:

Transfer rate is about the same as what Seagate claims
~141mb seq read
~179mb seq write

4K random read is slightly better than traditional hdd (7200.14 3TB)
~0.89mb vs ~0.67mb
4K random write is triples traditional hdd (7200.14 3TB)
~3.41mb vs ~1.27mb

512K random read/write is slightly better than 7200.14 ~10% better

3 years warranty

Cons:

-No big speed advantage on traditional hdd at all.
-Slower than my other traditional Seagate 3TB 7200.14 (141mb seq read vs 200mb seq read)
-4 degree hotter than the other 7200.14 3TB, but this could be due to position of case fan
-transfer speed is no where near a real SATA3 SSD

Other Thoughts:

I just installed it on my new Z87 build. The OS is Win8 running on an Intel 530SSD. I wanted to use this hybrid drive to hold my Steam game library.
After a fresh Win8 installation and updated all drivers and everything, I ran a benchmark on this empty 2TB hybrid drive and the result was very disappointing.

The only thoughts I have with this drive is let me return it and just get a bigger drive, or get two 1TB drive and RAID them, or save up and get a 1TB SSD
