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 don't know what my problem is with this, but when I look at my devices, this drive doesn't show up. I don't know how to put stuff on this thing. Like, literally everything I have is on my SSD, so now I'm down to like 315 GB.Could anyone tell me what's up?
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.
