5 out of 5 eggs Totally Awesome. 01/30/2014

This review is from: WD Black² Dual Drive 2.5" 120 GB SSD + 1 TB HDD Kit WD1001X06XDTL

Pros:

Speed, storage capacity, size.

Cons:

Price. (For now...)

Other Thoughts:

This is an incredible evolution of SSHD technology. Before this drive if you had a laptop with only one drive bay you had to either settle for an average sized SSD or get a huge HDD that was sluggish by comparison. Now you get a perfectly sized SSD for OS + lots of programs and tons of storage for everything else! It comes at a steep price for now but for early adopters with a laptop that has only one drive bay but a screaming processor and 8+ GB of RAM, this will future proof that thing until all of its hardware is obsolete... The included Acronis was ridiculously easy to download and install and cloned my laptop's SSD in about 5 minutes! Then the WD software enabled the 1TB HD and I am cooking with gas with a laptop that appears to have (and works just like it has) two hard drives! It boots just as fast as the SSD alone, but the WIE went down in Win7 from 7.8 to 5.9... Odd, it must be taking the 5200rpm HDD into account because performance has not been hurt in the slightest and programs load as fast as any SSD I own. Everyone else has done file transfer speed reviews so I'll just let you read their reviews for the numbers. This drive is a dream come true. I used a WD Raptor for almost 6 years and loved it because that sucker booted, ran programs, and transferred files like no other HDD (still have my whole OS on it in a drawer for emergency recovery) but went over to other brands' SSDs when they got cheap. Now I can see if WD Black Squared is as reliable as the Raptor. IF you have the money and the laptop for it, buy it. Period.
