Increase your computer's performance with SSD speed and HDD capacity. The Seagate Desktop SSHD combines a high-capacity hard drive and 8GB of solid state MLC flash to add SSD-like performance to any desktop computer. Thanks to the solid state drive, the Desktop SSHD boots OS and launches applications in seconds. But it is more cost-efficient because the combined technology leverages the better price-per-gigabyte of a hard disk drive. Adaptive Memory technology intelligently monitors the frequently used files and stores them in the solid state memory for blazing fast recall. The SATA 6Gb/s interface enables the use of the industry's latest and fastest hard drive controllers while providing backward compatibility to SATA 3Gb/s. The Desktop SSHD is designed to work in most desktop systems without the need for special drivers or software to install and configure. It installs and works just like a hard drive-only faster. Simultaneously run multiple applications like video and photography editing, video playback and computer games. Backed by a 3-year limited warranty.

Good job I did as old hard drive 'died' on me. Replaced original drive on newer PC with this one .... and yes it does speed up your boot up times and other frequently used software ... but it takes a few days of use to come into full effect.
No problems with Windows 8.1 installation.
Very well packed & protected by seller.
As usual with Seagate drive build quality and downloadable software very good. May get larger 2 or 4gb when money allows.
Rare, for me, 5 star review given.
would recommend to those who don't want to splash out £200+ on a pure SSD but want something faster than a HDD.
It takes a few days for it to learn which parts of the disk are getting accessed most (directories, system files, browser files etc) so don't expect it to be much faster than a conventional disk until it has had time to settle in.
I bought this hybrid drive from Seagate and installed following the brilliant guide from iFixit :-
Formatting using the Mac's 'Disk Utility' app was easy, then I used a 'Time Machine' back-up to copy the previous external disk's stuff onto this new internal disk which took a few hours but all works just as before.
NOTE: Before installing the new HD, I upgraded my Mac's OS to Yosemite and made a Time Machine back-up of everything which the Time Machine app later allows the new disk to 'inherit', so I recommend you do this first!
The iMac's performance is now very much better and very quiet.
A very worth while investment to upgrade performance and great value for money.
I bought the desktop version after reading a lot of reviews and I have decided to put this in my system to stay under the budget and get the speed of an SSD with the capacity of 7200rpm hard drive.
The drive come well packed in an antistatic pack which was in a box very carefully packaged with appropriate support. Just to clarify this is the desktop version. I used the Seagate Disc Wizard to clone my 80GB 7200 rpm primary drive, which took 20 minutes to transfer 42gb of data which was really good. Rebooted the sytem went to BIOS and choose this as the primary drive and happy days. I noticed the speed difference immediately, the booting times improved by half of what it used to take, I copied games over and the loading times improved also the general copying, moving and using start up menus, applications loading speed improved by a huge factor.
Very impressed with the purchase, would recommend it to anyone who are on a budget who want to have performance of an SSD with the capacity of an old school 7200rpm 1tb hard drive.
These are my specs just to show what do I mean by a bugdet build.

My dad's hard drive broke, so his computer got super slow, instead of buying another regular HDD that would be as slow as the previous one, I bought this.
Before buying this, I was not entirely sure that this would work, but it does!
The computer it is in has a fresh install of Windows 7, with some basic programs like Chrome and Word.
I use it for a gaming PC, and load times are greatly improved from my old hard drive, although presumably an SSD would be slightly faster, but to be honest I don't know if it would be worth the extra cost for a few seconds less of loading.
So far no complaints at all, very good value.
