Failed after 2 months 2/15/2020 8:04:53 PM

Pros: None

Cons: It was always buggy and making weird sounds. Since I got it, it was slow which was weird because I had done some research and it was considerably faster than my old hard drive but for some reason it felt slower.

Overall Review: Needs work

Seagate FireCuda Gaming SSHD 2TB 2/15/2020 9:42:19 AM

Pros: It is really small with large capacity, download speed starts with 20 MB/s
now up to 120 MB/s may be still learning.

Cons: Put it to a Asus i7 laptop, boot speed from 5 minutes now 1.5 minute
quite disappointed, switch back to a SSD which boots in 20 seconds.

Overall Review: Use as an external drive but it is no better than an ordinary Hard Drive with double in cost. Will see its learning curve to get faster.

Happy so far 2/14/2020 8:43:17 AM

Pros: Writes were 120 mb/s

Cons: Smaller cache than top of the line drives

Overall Review: Was worried that it might be slow but worked well when I actually got it. Some problems splitting the OS across multiple drives but that’s a Window’s issue

I had high hopes but hope is all you're going to get 2/14/2020 8:25:27 AM

Pros: Inexpensive for an HDD with SSD cache

Cons: Hot

Overall Review: Well, I've bought the older Seagate SSHD's (3.5" models from a few years ago) and those were decent performers and ran fairly cool. They also had a lot more SSD cache. I noted on the reviews that many complained about heat and early death when put in a console or laptop. Which told me there might be a heat issue with the product.

I tried it in a tablo DVR I had just bought that can take an internal sata drive. Unfortunately the tablo had heat issues on its own, and this drive wasn't helping. Many folks on the tablo forums said they had to put a fan on the unit or a laptop cooler under it. Half that problem was the ridiculous observation that the tablo's internals were built upside down, and apparently they haven't figured that out yet. Big heat sink on the bottom, no fan. So the tablo went back and with a choice of adding this to an i7 laptop as a second drive or a mid tower desktop, I decided to avoid adding heat to the laptop.

I installed this as a second drive in place of a very old sandisk sata SSD that was more about access time than read/write. Since it was off by itself attached to a big metal drive cage and well away from the cpu/gpu, the heat is manageable. But don't put this in something confined that creates a lot of heat.

Performance? Well, maybe as a primary drive the ssd cache might eventually accelerate a common app or game a bit, once it sees that you're using it a lot. Its my Steam drive, apps and library. In this application its slower in every way vs the old sandisk SSD. I was pretty surprised that the drive couldn't beat the old SSD on writes. In fact, it wasn't even in the ballpark. About 1/8th the read performance, 1/2 the write performance. Well, it was a cheap 2tb drive with an ssd cache...

TL;DR: Hot, slow, and an overall poor performer. Ignore the "gaming" and "fire" stuff, the only "fire" is happening inside the drive. Buy it for the price/TB. Don't expect a performance boost.

Fast and compact for secondary storage 2/12/2020 9:28:24 AM

Pros: Small form-factor and reasonably fast. I use them for secondary storage, not to load the os, boot and run although I haven't tried it in that configuration.

Overall Review: I bought one and this is the second. I also got the 3.5" version (by accident), but there is a lot of room in a mid size tower. Probably start looking at smaller alternatives.

Great Drives 2/11/2020 11:25:36 AM

Pros: - Fast
- Spacious
- Reliable
- Easy to install

Cons: - Not as fast as a full SSD
- Some mechanical parts could cause future issues
- Loud on spin up

Overall Review: I use these drives as secondary storage for all my computers. My desktop, my laptops, and my server all have one of these drives installed or more. I love the concept of the SSHD and find these drives to be an inexpensive way to add several terabytes of space to my systems for an inexpensive boost to my storage needs.
