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

David, South Africa. 22 August 2014

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

Percival, South Africa. 23 November 2015

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.

Tyrone, South Africa. 17 July 2015

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

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

Sumeet, South Africa. 22 September 2014

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.

Thanks Takealot.

Roscoe, South Africa. 21 July 2015

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.

Ivan, South Africa. 12 October 2014

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.

Arlo, South Africa. 24 October 2014

Excellent product. Extremely happy with this purchase.
