since this was my 1st build i wanted to keep it simple as possible and I shy'd away from using 2 drives, (ssd/hard drive). i gotta say i'm impressed with this hybrid drive.. i definitely notice big difference in load times compared to the standard HD i had in my previous pc.. although, there is a learning curve for the hybrid to "learn" what you use often.. after around 10-12 reboots, things really speed up..
is it as good as a ssd combo? no not quite,.. but i'm very happy with it
This is a very nice drive, handy with the SSD cache, and 2TB holds all of my games and my Steam library. Would highly recommend, especially considering the minute price increase from a standard 2TB drive.
I didn't wanna go above a certain budget so I opted for a Seagate hybrid, 2TB is really a good storage space for me for now, and it's faster somewhat than a standard hard drive.
Got the Hybrid instead of the HDD. It´s fast.
I was originally just going to buy a 1Tb hard drive, but I had an amazon gift card and wanted to get something a little better. I didn't even know these existed until a few weeks ago when a friend told me about them. I'm not sure if it is any faster, but has plenty of space.
Used for my gaming drive. Can't say I really notice the speed increase and I do tend to run the same game repeatedly so it should cache.
Love using these in laptops/systems where it's the sole drive. Seems more suited to caching an OS install.
Fast for an HDD even if it is a Hybrid drive. Mainly used for mass-storage as well as a seperate partition for a complete system image and back-up.
Hybrid drives get a bad reputation and I don't see why. Running some tests, this is faster than, for example, a wd blue. My sister uses it primarily for media storage and game storage, and its pretty fast.
The Seagate 2Tb SSHD replaced a 1TB WD HDD which was super full. Another SSD wouldnt fit the budget so an SSHD was worth it. The HDD performed extremely well so this SSHD will perform better hopefully. I put all of my games, movies, photos and etc on it.
