    This is a very nice drive, handy with the SSD cache, and 2TB holds all of my games and my Steam library. Would highly recommend, especially considering the minute price increase from a standard 2TB drive.

    Hybrid drives get a bad reputation and I don't see why. Running some tests, this is faster than, for example, a wd blue. My sister uses it primarily for media storage and game storage, and its pretty fast.

    Got the Hybrid instead of the HDD. It´s fast.

    I didn't wanna go above a certain budget so I opted for a Seagate hybrid, 2TB is really a good storage space for me for now, and it's faster somewhat than a standard hard drive.

    Fast for an HDD even if it is a Hybrid drive. Mainly used for mass-storage as well as a seperate partition for a complete system image and back-up.

    since this was my 1st build i wanted to keep it simple as possible and I shy'd away from using 2 drives, (ssd/hard drive). i gotta say i'm impressed with this hybrid drive.. i definitely notice big difference in load times compared to the standard HD i had in my previous pc.. although, there is a learning curve for the hybrid to "learn" what you use often.. after around 10-12 reboots, things really speed up.. is it as good as a ssd combo? no not quite,.. but i'm very happy with it

    Purchased when they first came out to see if it would make any difference to game loading times as I played a lot more back then. Honestly the result is barely noticeable if you're constantly loading the same game. Not sure how the newer models fair with a larger cache and better optimised firmware but I wouldn't get another SSHD for this use again.

    I was originally just going to buy a 1Tb hard drive, but I had an amazon gift card and wanted to get something a little better. I didn't even know these existed until a few weeks ago when a friend told me about them. I'm not sure if it is any faster, but has plenty of space.
