Bottom line, if you have the option to build a new notebook with the Seagate 500GB Momentus XT, go for it. If you have an existing notebook and want to replace its hard drive for a SSHD, you can expect a little uplift here and there, but temper your expectations.
This drive is a compromise between storage and speed, but we do feel that they got the balance just right, and as it is at a very competitive price this is absolutely ideal for all users who are looking to upgrade their laptop hard drive but still require lots of storage capacity and can’t afford th
For every consumer who wants the power and speed that only an SSD can provide, there are legions of others that just can’t afford or simply don’t need leading edge performance. However, there are plenty of people out there who want great performance coupled with sufficient storage capacity in a smal
The Momentus XT beats out traditional hard drives in just about every test. This drive is the perfect stepping stone for those who want the increased speed that a SSD provides, but require more space than current SSD's can deliver.
While the Seagate Momentus XT doesn't clearly dominate all standard hard drives across every type of usage model, Seagate's hybrid implementation seems to address its intended performance results quite well.
While it is unfair to compare the Momentus XT to an SSD in terms of performance alone, incorporating a small (4GB) SSD in the Momentus XT does help it shine when compared to other traditional hard drives.

Really fast,and feels like a ssd. I got it for a replacement for my 2 year old hp g72 laptop because the hard drive broke. It boosted my laptops speed by a lot. I also love the price because i got it for only 39.99 on boxing day!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is a fine Harddrive it works the way a harddrive should be expected to and it has 4gb of ssd storage that will apparently only get make it fasterin the long run I honestly cant see anything wrong with that. If I did have to find some sort of fault it would be that I had issue loading a OS to it in an old laptop but it worked well in my main.
This has been a good purchase so far, it's very fast compared to my old hitachi 500GB 7200rpm laptop drive. It's much faster and doesn't use anymore power. The seek noise is louder on this drive however, and some have complained regarding the reliability issue of this drive. But it has been working fine for me so far.
well i like how small it is and it is quite fast as of now , a lot better than my old seagate 32mb cache one i got 2 years ago which i threw out lately cuz its broken lol it crashes my PC every 5 mins or even at the start of bootup.
