Good product. SSHD definitely worth the premium over a traditional HHD

I really appreciate the special on this product, this is awesome HDD and i can see the change of speed on my Macbook Pro 15" mid 2009. And on top of that the delivery and tracking info was amazing.

I bought this to replace a drive that failed in my Sony Vaio laptop. It has sped up the laptop's boot time significantly and I am very happy overall with the purchase.

Seagate still the best hard drive in my view. I have to replace the Fijitshu Laptop's hard drive which was a Toshiba. All my hard drives I use is SEAGATE. The Laptop I have was manufactured with a Toshiba brand. I just don't feel any difference in speed compare to other drives.

Bought in November last year, platter's sectors weakened in a short time. Unsuable after a short period after purchase. Not happy!

Regarding the performance of this drive, I have a MSI Gaming Laptop and was using a Hitachi 5400rpm 8MB Cache HDD. upgraded to this SSHD and what can i say, WOW! The performance on this SSHD is very fast, Boot times, load times, response times - everything. Very impressed and a good buy. Recommended.
My windows 7 Ultimate boot time - 11 seconds

An affordable and significant upgrade to any normal HDD. It's no SSD, but it's a great trade off between speed and capacity for a lower cost lap top or small form-factor PC.

Decent replacement for older Seagate 500GB drive on an old gaming laptop with Windows 10 recently upgraded. Noticeable faster boot time.
