Seagate Hybrid Drives ST1000LM014 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: reasonable price, large storage capacity, great speed due to it's 8 GB adaptive Solid State section (essentially a SSD).

Cons: would have been nice if the solid state cache (SSD) portion was a bit bigger (32 GB, anyone?).

Other Thoughts: Most new laptops (& the few desktops still being sold) will begin employing these Hybrid drives, for the best of both worlds -- both the speed of a SSD & the large capacity of a hard drive.
The fact that it is adaptive, so that over time the files you use most (a small subset of the O.S., all the programs you have installed, & your data) get stored in the 8 GB SSD portion of the hybrid drive, means that you will get the speed advantage where you need it, & the large capacity advantage for the rest of it.
If you had more money than you knew what to do with, & you had 2 drive bays available (only the bigger laptops have this), then you could install a moderately large SSD (mine is 480 GB), & a large hard drive (say 1 TB), but for the rest of the world, a Hybrid drive is the ideal solution.
Both Seagate & Toshiba have a 1 TB Hybrid drive available, but Seagate's cache is 16 MB versus only 8 MB on the Toshiba, so slightly faster access when you have to read from the hard drive portion of this storage device.
