4 out of 5 eggs limited flash partition but it's still good 03/14/2014

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST1000DX001 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros:

Windows loads rather fast after getting "trained"
Frequently used applications load much faster.
Inexpensive solution to get both (speed and capacity)

Cons:

It's not great for massive file transfer.
It can be pain if you have "dual-boot" (two or more OSes on the same laptop).

Other Thoughts:

Actually, I have two drives installed on two laptops. The firmware records the application accessed the platter and cached them onto flash partition which helps speeding up. I have it installed on Toshiba laptop which runs Windows 7. The difference is obvious after few times of startup/shutdown. Firefox loads instantly because I ofter use it.
However, if you have dual-boot (two OSes installed), you won't get the benefit from it. After Installed Server 2008 (for school) on same Toshiba laptop, loading speed of Windows 7 becomes painfully slow after I used Server 2008 few time, so this drive is not recommended for those who has two or OSes installed on the same computer. If you want to have equal performance on both platforms, you need a full SSD.
Massive file transfer isn't faster than other 5400RPM HDD because flash partition isn't utilized.
Regardless of these caveats, this hybrid is still a good solution for those want inexpensive solution of the laptop.
