LONG REVIEW FOLLOWS:

SSDs offer the best performance but the obstacle remains the price. 500gb SSDs have dropped a lot but the popular 256gb sized drives are priced much the same as they were a year ago. If you are a Laptop user, unless you're willing to either spend a lot of money, compromise on storage space or have a laptop with space for more than one storage drive, SSDs are not suitable and this is where Hybrid drives can come in.

The hybrid drive uses a small amount of fast NAND memory to act as a cache for frequently accessed data and thus speeds up the drive considerably. Seagate's new line of Hybrid drives sees 8GB of NAND as standard. The 750gb model makes way for a 1TB drive and both drives now use spindle speeds of 5400rpm. Seagate also claim the incorporated algorithm that caches data has been improved (common writes as well as common reads are now cached). If you still want a 7200rpm Hybrid drive, snap up the 750gb Momentus quickly as it is discontinued.

Installing in an old 2008 Macbook Pro was easy, I opted to restore from a Time Machine backup as I wanted my drive exactly as it had been though a clean install and use of Migration Assistant (or windows equivalent) is probably the best option for an error free experience. I would try to avoid drive cloning unless it's really necessary.

As with the old Momentus drive, the first boot wasn't particularly impressive as the algorithm had yet to determine what data to cache but after I'd restarted 3 times, things were definitely faster.

Some figures:
From a cold start, I timed how long it took to reach the grey Apple logo, how long to fully load the desktop and a total boot to desktop time:
5400rpm HDD: 39 seconds, 38 seconds respectively.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great speeds for PS4! 31 Dec 2013
I bought this for my new PS4 and am so pleased with the speed of the SSHD. This drive offers bits of both with a 8GB flash memory and a 64mb cache for the standard platters. The PS4 comes with a standard 500gb, 5400rpm, 8mb cache. I needed more space as some games take up around 40gb install only! When installed into the PS4 the memory goes down to around 870GB which is the same on all devices with 1 TB. This SSHD offers a much faster loading times, etc. The flash memory will detect which files you use the most and store them in the 8GB flash memory, this is MUCH faster! Delivery and packaging were at a high standard and a good price. Thanks again Amazon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as fast as previous generations.. 21 Jun 2014
By Hector
Verified Purchase
Disclaimer: I have not done any scientific measurements, instead I am working from how the computer feels after the upgrades (on a 2011 Macbook Pro). This HD is a bit of a disappointment as 'it feels' not as fast at booting and as responsive as the previous generation (750Gb. Momentus XT). Don't get me wrong, it is a great improvement from a regular HD, but I would expect a bit of an evolution in the technology and somehow it feels like it falls a bit short. However, the improved capacity is very attractive and the old Momentus is gone so this is the only choice at the moment.

This hard drive caches frequently random-accessed parts of files. What this does is allow one to have the capacity of a hard drive, yet (after it's learned which data actually benefits from flash) have the low latency of flash-based storage. It's about five times slower in terms of sequential read performance than an SSD, but that's not what makes a pc fast. It's the latency that makes the biggest difference. In many ways, it's similar to the technology in Intel's Smart Response Technology, or Apple's Fusion Drive (which is probably just rebranded SRT), but it's on the hard drive itself and not on the motherboard. This then is a set-and-forget solution for tiered storage, ideal for platforms without SRT support, for people who prefer to spend money on other things than SSD's or simply don't want to bother with having a boot drive and a separate storage drive. This is what has saved mechanical storage from obsolescence.

I bought this after watching a YouTube video showing the benefits of a Hybrid drive for Playstation 4. I purchased this in anticipation of my Playstion 4 arriving. It arrived well packaged and promptly.
Installing it within my Playstation 4 was easy ( a lot of guides online).
I have compared the loading times against a friend's console (PS4) and there is a slight difference when loading the game for the first time but a lot quicker the second time round.
I am very happy with the performance of this drive. I would have bought a 7200 rpm but unfortunately not available as a Hybrid drive at the time of purchase.

David.
