Rated 3 out of 5 by 1
Rated 3 out of 5 by mark7 Small form factor and low power 1TB drive with SSD buffer.
I use SSDs in all my equipment from small power efficient boxes to the biggest power hungry workstations.
And I have to admit even 5 year old X25-V outperforms this drive in reading department. However, it's sheer size comparing to the old SSD is more important in my project.
I've purchased this drive more to see if it really is capable to become main desktop drive and I'm positively surprised it manages this function pretty well.
Overall, don't expect miracles it's just a HDD with 8GB of SSD cache for your main system to load faster.
I've managed ~100MB/s when it comes to read and write performance. But bearing in mind it's 5400rpm and it's price,
I think it's good £/performance ratio. Also 3 year warranty seems like good deal.
