Experience: 4 Years


-Decently quick
-Worked for a long time before 1 started to fail
-Can't really think of any
Had two of these drives in RAID 0 for 4 years and they worked like a charm. Not quite the speed of an SSD but in RIAD 0 they worked nice and quick. One of them just started to fail 4 years down the road from buying them and using them.

Experience: 1 Weeks


-It definitely gets faster with the recommended 3-5 reboots!
-Good $$ per GB
-Definitely nowhere near as responsive as a pure SSD
-5400rpm HDD means you get the typical HDD lags whenever you do an action that isn't cached
I've been a user of Seagate SSHD's since the Momentus XT series. Since then, SSD prices have dropped dramatically. For my main machine, I wouldn't accept anything less than a pure SSD.
However, many people are very price sensitive, so the SSHD still occupies an important niche.
The 500GB Seagate SSHD is a nice drive - you definitely get more performance than an HDD, especially with repeated tasks like booting, launching a few applications, etc.
However, since the built in cache is so small, you definitely get a lot of HDD-like performance including lags, stutters and long load times of non-cached applications. Go in expecting almost exactly halfway between HDD and SSD performance.
Hopefully by making these 5400rpm they'll be even more reliable. I have couple of Momentus XT's kicking around my extended family that are still running great 2-3 years later.

Experience: 7 Days


Cheap, low power consumption, and faster than regular HDD.
Wish it had a bigger ssd cache
Perfect for an old laptop (Probook 4530S). Significantly lowered boot times on Windows 10 Preview. Fast program startup times. Same price as a 120gb SSD, but four times the room, and not that much slower in general use. Recommended.

Experience: 14 Days


Quieter than the old Hitachi Laptop Drive it replaced.
Drive profile was slimmer so getting the mountings screw in was a bit difficult.
Getting the OS to install was problematic
Replacing the drive was quite simple however installing the OS took some trial and error as the Windows Install media had trouble with drivers, I'm assuming it was the chipset drivers, to use the new hard drive.
In the end I had to mount an external drive with the required chipset drivers on it, then the Installer functioned as expected.

Day to day usage has been as expected, I believe it resumes from hibernate somewhat faster than the drive it replaced, but most importantly it doesn't make as much noise as the old drive.

Experience: 1 Weeks


-nice big SSD cache really speeds things up
-low vibrations and lower power consumption
-7mm form factor
-more costly than regular hard drives
With the SSD cache it outpeerforms some of the other 7200rpm laptop drives out there. good buy if you want a balance of speed and capacity

hybrid speed
slightly expensive
Got this for my old laptop to replace the old running hdd. Must say it is not as fast as I have expected. But if you do not want to spend too much on SSD, the hybrid drive is your only option for now.

Experience: 3 Days


-- Nicely packaged and fast delivery with purolator
-- Passed the "extensive SMART test" with "healthy" and no errors.
-- Noticeably faster boot and some software more responsive
-- Virtually silent
-- Disk temp haven't gone above 47C under full load
-- 7mm height compatible with pretty much every laptop
-- Installation was a breeze in my Sony VGN-FW180D.
-- 8gb ssd portion could be a little larger. I dual boot windows/linux and I feel like it could use some headroom. However, given the price and performance I am getting, not really complaining much.
This is the perfect drive for people looking for capacity and reliability with faster boot times. Note that you will NOT get pure ssd performance, that being said my computer is noticeably more responsive than before. Big upgrade from my old Samsung HM320JI with 8mb cache.

Note: update  to new firmware "SM15" right away. To download the update  go to "Seagate Download Finder" and look for update d firmware zip.

Experience: 7 Days


Speed, space
Slight negative effect on battery life
Used this to replace the failing drive in a MacBook Pro 13" Mid 2013 (MacBookPro 7,1). Easy to install, noticeably faster. A impossibly small torx screwdriver is needed to remove the studs from the side of the old drive in this MBP model, but they can be loosened / removed with a good pair of pliers as well. As others have mentioned, I've noticed a sudden and significant decrease in battery life immediately after the upgrade. Having said that, the battery in said system is past 600 cycles and would likely have to be replaced within a year or two in any case.

Experience: 45 Days


Easy to install, fast access
I used this drive to replace an existing 500Gb HD in my Lenovo Notebook and am totally pleased with it. It boots quicker and loads my mostly used programs much quicker.

Experience: 2 Weeks


very fast + reasonably priced = excellent value
OEM bare drive - you'll need to provide your own cloning solution
A few months ago I was looking for a portable content consumption device to supplement my desktop computer. I looked at several tablets and Chromebooks before choosing an Acer netbook with Windows 8, it was less expensive than most of the 10" tablets I was considering and compatibility with the applications I want to use is assured. I've been quite pleased with the netbook but performance, while reasonable given the price point, was sluggish. I decided to try speeding it up with a hybrid drive. The results have been spectacular. Subjectively, the machine is faster than professional quad core laptops we have at work - costing 3 times as much. Objectively, my netbook will cold boot to a desktop in 20 seconds which is faster than the Latitudes will wake up from sleep mode. Highly recommended.
