Rated 3 out of 5 by adifferentone It hasn't broken yet
after a couple of months - which amazes me, by today's standards of HDD.
It replaces a sorry litany of SSDs which seem to last 6 months max - and seems to be about as fast e.g. to boot from.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eschatonic A New Lease of Life for an Old System
I have recently rebuilt an old PC with an Athlon 64x2 3 GHz cpu on an Asus MPNPV motherboard. The mobo only supports 3Gb SATA and I was pretty skeptical about the benefits of fitting an expensive modern drive.
The practical result of running this drive with Windows 10 at half of it's potential throughput has far, far exceeded all my expectations. The hybrid acts as my C: drive.
I generally run a copy of Excel, a copy of Word and MediaMonkey plus Chrome with a few open tabs all day long. It takes about 35 seconds to boot and then runs with a real snap about it. For mixed office work I cannot fault the performance of this drive and I would buy another one without hesitation and quite frankly I would prefer to have one of these to the Patriot Blast SSD in one of my other machines.
I strongly recommend considering one of these as a better alternative to a 240 Gb SSD main drive. For day to day work the only place you notice the advantage of pure SSD is at boot time. I have two similar PCs (both with 3Gb SATA) and the SSD C: drive boots in about 10 seconds versus some 35 seconds for the hybrid. Once they're running the 8 times larger hybrid must be the winner.
Don't hesitate - get one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by T3012 Quiet and fast
Copying from an existing nearly-full 1TB disk was painless using Paragon utilities. With the Seagate I can no longer hear any head movement and the disk is almost as quiet as my SSD. So pretty-much absolute silence from my fanless PC.

For what this is, I can't fault it. Good value for money, does the job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Darrell Hybrid - great idea for iMacs but not a direct SSD substitute
Replaced iMac HD. Good option to get some SSD-type performance and to keep the big storage volumes. But booting, it's no way near the same as a regular SSD. But once it's booted, it is very fast with app launches, so overall pleased.
