Seagate Hybrid Drive ST1000DX001 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Interesting concept

Cons: Unstable

Other Thoughts: My issue is not with the storage but rather the SSD caching. Whatever exactly happens during this process seemed to be highly unstable. My system was fine for quite awhile but then it began acting strangely. It would boot into Windows but not load anything, I could move the mouse and sometimes click icons on the desktop but not always. It would delay operations like opening a folder or running a program, with no clear cause. This was only occuring during the bootup phase, if it did happen to properly boot then everything would seem fine and it would pass diagnostics.

In my opinion while the Seagate analysis tools work on the hard drive platter portion they don't seem to be tuned for analyzing that the caching is correctly working, infact I don't really know how someone could analyze that.

I bought a cheap Micron M550 refurb and it's running perfectly fine now. Unfortunately while the storage seemed ok this hybrid drive seems unstable to me.

Was it my drivers? I don't believe so because I use Station-Drivers for updates, newest ones available. I'd like to think the motherboard caused it but the problem didn't exist until recently, and the system was stable if the bootup process went normally. If it didn't then nothing worked properly as I described.

Not worth returning as it's so cheap. If I discover another cause I'll of course update my review.

5 out of 5 eggs Awesome 06/05/2016

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS Challenger Prime Backlit Gaming Keyboard

Pros: Everything

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: It's so cheap and feature packed, it works fine. 3 different LED lights make this a great buy.

I never noticed a CD with the software, maybe I threw it away before I found it (to excited). It's a quality keyboard, I am satisfied with it and the keys are all working fine. Really this kind of thing makes you wonder why other manufactures aren't keeping up, it's a superior device to what you can find elsewhere. Good job guys!

Pros: It works fine and was cheap

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought this because it's cheap but also I found out the heatspreaders are just a gimmick and don't actually do anything except make it harder to install heatsinks/fans on your CPU without getting in the way. Good buy
