1 out of 5 eggsWhat a piece of junk!!!

Pros: None.

Cons: Where do I start? First drive was not recognized by any system: Laptop, PCs, Netbook. RMAed and got new drive. Same thing. Never recognized. This was the biggest waste of money I have ever spent. Seagate will never get my business again. When I called the second time, it was past their window on RMAed items, so basically I was out of luck. Nothing to show for good money spent on a horrible product. Sad.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as advertised

Pros: Having used it for my laptop for 2 years, I think it is safe to say that this product works exactly as it is advertised. No, it's still a HDD and won't work as fast as any SSD your MBP's have got, but it has noticably improved my boot performance across Windows 7 and 4 versions of Linux Mint. It's definitely worth it for the price when I bought it, although now that SSDs are cheap and plenty you might consider getting a proper SSD instead.

Cons: Can't think of any

5 out of 5 eggsStill Working

Pros: Replaced a Dell Laptop (Pentium M) drive with this about 2 years ago. It still works fine.
Once the SSD caching system starts to cache correctly, it does boot quite fast.

Cons: I would probably say unless you need the space, the Crucial M500 is far faster and is about $120 for 240 GB right now.

Other Thoughts: My brother's laptop (The Dell) is pretty fast with this drive, but it doesn't stand a chance against my laptop in terms of drive speed. The Crucial M500 240 GB in my laptop is wicked fast / will probably outlive this drive.

3 out of 5 eggsMeh

Pros: I thought I would save myself a few bucks buying this instead of a true SSD 2 years ago when I built my dream system. I should have sprung the extra cash for a real SSD. This drive is nothing special. I love Seagate drives. But I don't think "hybrid" drives have a future. All this is, is a mechanical spinning laptop drive (2.5") with a large solid state cache. I see no improvement in read/write times over tradtional hard drives. As with all the Seagates I've ever owned, it has not given me any mechanical failure issues or even any bad sectors or blocks. But a speed demon it is not. I recently ordered a true SSD as an upgrade to replace this. I will then make this the boot drive on my backup server or maybe replace the boot drive on one of my workstations.

Cons: A little pricey for basically a regular hard drive of only a 500 GB capacity.

Not any faster than a traditional hard drive.

Other Thoughts: My build in April 2012:

2 out of 5 eggsFailing after 1.5 years. Switching to SSD.

Pros: Slightly faster than a normal HDD. Worked for a bit I guess.

Cons: -Failing fast. (getting error messages...wont be long..
-Loses speed fast
-Pricing is getting worse

Other Thoughts: You can get a 250gb Top of the line SSD for less than they want for this. I am never buying a seagate sshd again. May just go SSD over HDD for now on.

4 out of 5 eggssounds like a case fan after 16 months

Pros: Fast, cheap, easy to install.

Cons: A couple weeks ago it thought my fan was running full time. But there was no air blowing from the fan ports, so I started looking at the only other moving part in my laptop, the aux drive (main drive is SSD). Seagate won't take it back because it hasn't failed yet; noise is not sufficient for a warranty claim.

This problem seems to be well-known. So I guess I'll back it up and buy an HGST drive so I'll be prepared when this one fails. I've been using Seagate drives since the ST-251 days. They're just not as reliable as they used to be.

Other Thoughts: 4 eggs because it hasn't failed to function yet. I will reduce my rating if dies before the warranty runs out.
