Comes with an 8GB SSD built in and over time learns which files you use the most to give quicker access. Good for an HTPC build as you save having two seperate drives. As it is over 3GB must initialise/format using GPT to access all the space in one partion. Quite noisy.
It's big but it's slow 4/5
good drive fast very quiet as well hard drive never spins i am going to get another soon i really like theses drive first time using a hybrid back in my day of building it was all mechanical
I got this drive exclusively for gaming, and even at 5900rpm, the increase in speed over a 7200rpm mechanical hard drive is very noticeable. Solid state hybrid drives - specifically the Seagate design where the flash portion caches the most frequently used files & programs stored in the hard disk portion - typically don't work as well as HDDs for playing media files, but for gaming, load times are substantially shorter. The 4TB size is also very roomy, as I have roughly 250 games installed (many of which exceed 30GB) and 1.5TB of space remaining on here. At $150, it's roughly four cents per gigabyte and $37.50 per terabyte, making it an outstanding value considering the high level of performance.
