Seagate FireCuda Gaming SSHD 2TB SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: - Easy to setup with no special driver software
- A lot of space in a small form factor
- Decent speed for a 2.5” HDD

Cons: - After long write times, performance drops faster than other HDD
- Write rate 54.6MBps - 136.1MBps (Avg: 101.8MBps)
- Slower access time than other HDD (14.9ms vs 12.5ms)

This is supposed to be a hard disk drive made faster by the SSD but I could not tell that there was an SSD in it. It was out performed by my 3.5” 1TB hard disk drive. Most 3.5” HDD are faster than 2.5” but my 3.5” HDD is about 6 years old and not made for gaming. This may be a fine alternative, but it is not nearly as fast as I expected. Compared to my other SSD, this came nowhere close. My SSD out performed this drive by almost 5 times.

Other Thoughts: For gaming, which it is built for, this could be ok since it has a large capacity and it does better on short load times which are exactly what games have. Once the game level is loaded the hard drive is not needed much. However, don’t expect anything close to a dedicated SSD’s performance or even matching the performance of a standard 3.5” HDD.

Pros: They are very flat and cheap. After using them for 5 minutes, your eyes start to adjust. However, your eyes have to readjust if you're away from your screen for more than 5 minutes.

Cons: I use 2 of these at work. I originally had 2 different ones but thought I was "upgrading" when switching to these since they are 1080p. Out of all the monitors I have ever used, these are the worst. They are very washed out and no matter how many settings I changed, I never got them to look alright.

Other Thoughts: There are better cheap monitors out there.
