3 out of 5 eggsnot so fast!

Pros: Installed in macbook 09 with 8 gb....an improvement, but still not that much difference in boot time. Otherwise reliable, & occasionally swift. However, not worth the extra $$ in purchasing IMHO.

Cons: added costs not justified

Other Thoughts: spend more for ssd instead

5 out of 5 eggsSSHD

Pros: Small form factor, low cost, high capacity, fast, efficient, functional in humid and arid climates.

Cons: Still a spin drive with the potential of spin drive damages.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I like this SSHD. Works as advertised. Once you get it all hooked up, you notice a significant difference. Rest assured, your machine is only as fast as the processor will allow, but upgrading some of the other items definitely helps out. I have a late 2011 model macbook pro and threw this in there and it is flawless. I will be purchasing these drives for all of my machines.

1 out of 5 eggsDisappointing performance; Buy a true SSD

Pros: Quiet

Cons: Slower than many non-hybrid drives
Various performance issues

Other Thoughts: Falling for the hybrid hype, I purchased this drive after much research. However, after purchasing this drive to replace my slow, stock laptop hard drive, I was amazed to discover that the performance gains were minimal. It simply wasn't worth the money I spent.

I tested it against two other non-hybrid hard drives of the same size and found that both the non-hybrids outperformed this drive by up to 15, even after a firmware update.. The other two drives were both Western Digital drives; one a laptop drive and the other, a desktop drive. The desktop drive was the fastest of the three.

A few days ago, I purchased a SSD drive of the same size. It wasn't cheap, but it outperforms this hybrid by a factor of 4.5 to 1, and with an industry wide average failure rate of less than 1% as compared to an average failure rate of 5% for HDD. Add to that the decreased operating temperature and lower power consumption, and you'll easily get more for your money with SSD drives. My battery lasts more than 2 times as long as it did with the hybrid.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear William H.,

We would like to note that it may take a few reboots to notice the full performance benefit of your Desktop Solid State Hybrid drive. This will allow the adaptive memory feature to determine the data that is accessed most frequently and put this data on the high performing SSD portion of the drive.

If you have additional questions or concerns, please contact our support staff and we will be happy to assist further:

2 out of 5 eggsSlow, poor performance

Pros: Good space.

Cons: Where to start. The drive is slow. Very very very slow. So slow that it chokes the laptop to the point of becoming totally unresponsive. At that point, you cannot do anything for about 5 minutes. I've been able to recreate the issue a number of times. The drive has the latest firmware.

Other Thoughts: Other than using as a secondary drive for storage, I don't know what value it really has. It is not well suited as a primary drive for anyone who is seeking any type of performance. This might work for your mom's laptop if all she does is Facebook. For a power user, run. Run fast and far.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Scott B.,

We apologize for the problems experienced with your Laptop Solid State Hybrid drive. Certainly it is not typical or expected for this drive to behave this way. We would like to talk with you by phone to determine the root cause and available resolution to the performance problem.

5 out of 5 eggsSlow Start

Pros: Worked great on my macbook and was easily partitioned.

Cons: The bootup time for the mac side of my partition would take about 3 to 4 minutes, but this was fixed after running the apple diagnostics tool and now boot up takes about 25 seconds.

5 out of 5 eggsPS4 Drive

Pros: Large Storage

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought this drive one week before the PS4 was released and installed it immediately before setting up my PS4. The drive has worked great and have not had any problems at all. If you are upgrading for a PS4 then its a great buy.

2 out of 5 eggsCan't Handle A Lot Of Data

Pros: Easy installation, fast access speed.

Cons: This drive cannot handle an application in which there are a lot of data rewrites happening over an extended period of time. I installed one on my computer and began to have disk error and repair messages every couple of weeks. Finally, last week it failed totally on the middle of a job. I have the same drive installed in another computer that is not worked as hard. The drive works fine for normal applications but cannot handle a lot of data.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear James S.,

Please try running our SeaTools diagnostics on the drive that is experiencing the disk error and repair messages so we can determine the drive health:
