Cheap for what is it I guess
Nothing yet.
Got it on sale for 69.99.
Decent product, but haven't tried loading an OS off of it yet.

And it hasn't blown up yet.

Picked this up as a replacement for my old HDD in my laptop
It is a little bit faster than traditional hard drive
I don't know the reliability of this drive ....
this drive is an excellent compromise between the storage space and the price of a SSD

Experience: 14 Days

10 cents a gig, some advantages of an ssd and space of a regular drive
Clicking sound for the first few days
Not an ssd but fine for my old school m1330
Ocz vertex2 failed, replacement drive went into raid 5 array and xt went into laptop.
Louder, uses more power, not as fast, but 5 times the space at half the cost

Experience: 4 Days

Excellent performance speed,price
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!!!!!!!!!!!!!

nothing much to say, it's a 500gb hard drive that does it's job
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.

-Power consumption
-Seek noise
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.

Experience: 1 Years
Pretty fast, as for booting up, decent amount of storage
not a true ssd
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.

This is a good buy =P for 100's it is a good harddrive get it !!

Works great
No issues
I bought this for $60 and I don't have anything bad to say about it. I bought it for my laptop that only had 320GB so the extra storage space is nice.

The load times for Windows is noticeably faster which is nice and installation went off without a hitch. No compatibility issues and additional software required. Everything works great.

Experience: 6 Months

No problems with it. Also own 750. Using them on an over locked computer
There is faster but for the money its a good buy
Works fine. I own the 750g and have the 500 coming. Overall good

Comment: 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.

Comment: 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
Posted by: Babaghan @09/27/11
Comment: 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
Posted by: iFry @01/15/11
Comment: A real alternative to expensive (and small) SSD's. You aren't going to get the blazing speed of a good SSD but don't have to compromise on storage space.
Posted by: BernardP @08/18/10
Comment: The first Hybrid drive that nicely blends an SSD and HDD together to create  a drive that performs well and won't empty your pocket book.
Posted by: BernardP @07/19/10
Comment: 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.
Posted by: BernardP @07/19/10
Comment: 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.
Posted by: BernardP @07/19/10
Comment: 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.
Posted by: BernardP @07/19/10
Comment: Once it establishes a usage pattern and caches the needed data to the Flash, then the drive gives a near to SSD experience, albeit a lower end SSD.
Posted by: BernardP @07/19/10
Comment: A positive review for Seagate's lastest effort.
