Here's what the drive does well: It's alignment- and OS-agnostic, so it does not care if you run it unaligned on older XP systems. It will, over about 5 cycles, learn what you do and optimize it. You will notice your system boots much faster. It excels on systems where you boot into your OS and do the same basic tasks, say, open MS office and Firefox and Outlook.
Here's what the drive does not do well: If you are constantly changing what you run on your computer, your drive will constantly be "learning" what you do. I have also found it does not do well with remote desktop apps that are constantly caching image data.
Here's what the drive does that makes it no better or worse than any other mechanical drive: If you are using the drive to store music or videos or such, they are going to go the the platters. Then it's just another very good, high performance 7200RPM notebook drive. Nothing wrong with that at all.
Here's the KILLER APP reason to buy this drive: I took a 32-bit Vista Home Premium laptop that was so congested and clogged with programs, leftovers of removed programs, fragmentation, you name it, and just cloned it to this drive. The mechanical drive it was on took literally 5 minutes to get to a useful state on the desktop. This drive, after about 5 boots, learned that our family needed Vista OS, Chrome for Farmville, and iTunes. We now have 30 second boots and even though the drive is still loading services and such, we can launch apps immediately at the desktop. Our primary apps either snap open, or in the case of iTunes launch about 3x faster. It's not subtle, it's huge.
If you want a drive that does not have alignment issues with older OS's, and is used primarily on a computer that does about the same sorts of things over and over, this drive will make a huge difference for you. And since it's SLC cache, it's enterprise-class durable in that regard. Also, it mirrors its flash to the mechanical drive, so if the flash fails, it just becomes a regular mechanical drive, sort of like a run-flat tire.
Now for my review, so first I opted out for the just re download everything option as I did not want to format my external hard drive which made me kind of frustrated until I actually got it running. The first thing I noticed was how fast my downloads were. My internet speed has always been fast, only my old 5400 RPM HDD could not keep up with the write speeds! For example I just downloaded NFS MOST WANTED 2012 edition that came out a few days ago and my download time with my 5400 RPM HDD was around 2 hours (5Gbs, after I installed The Momentus XT my download speed dropped down to just under 30 minutes! I saved an hour and a half on download speed alone.
Some of you might be skeptical and that is ok, but continuing my install speeds are faster, my game loading screens are faster, when I am in a game online and I have to check a message from the XMB screen the is no lag and it is as smooth as butter as I can respond with out that annoying loading swirl in the top corner (all you ps3 gamers know what I am talking about)and most importantly I can get back into the game faster!
Overall I feel like I have a new system, it is faster in every aspect, it saves faster, downloads faster, installs faster, and loads your games faster. If you have GTA IV I am sure you have been driving in your car and notice some building animations pop up out of nowhere due to your HDD playing catch up and struggling to load everything, well guess what that is eliminated with this HDD as it loads everything extremely fast. You will NOT be disappointing with this HDD! It is a must buy and will greatly enhance your gaming experience and put you ahead of the competition!
Only thing I don't understand is microsofts score ranking of 5.9 which is the same as my previous 5400RPM WD green caviar hard drive. Yet I know I have substantially faster access to programs and my PC seems to no longer lock up. Also no problems with sleep mode. After my first 24-48hrs of installing my large gaming and software files its successfully survived the intense usage. Some heat is noted, but not terrible. I have this installed in my HP pavillion elite e9120y quad core 8GB Ram...it boots around 15seconds and my minute or two of loading programs at startup now only takes 10 to 20 seconds and it can have my web browser up and ready...which is awesome for the price and storage reliability over the general SSD market. Hope they make larger Hybrid drives...perhaps with 8GB or more SSD and larger overall disk space. Not disappointed with my choice though, over an SSD or Velociraptor type drive. Its quiet and seemingly reliable with the firmware update...no problems yet.
Hope if anyone buys one they get one that works because if it does what its supposed to you wouldn't be disappointed. I based my purchase on budget...and it probably meets 2/3 of an ssd and significantly better than standard 7200 or 5200RPM drives.
Thought I'd post drive is still working like it did when I bought it. I've upgraded to firmware 28 without any problems. Occasionally during boot up on Windows 7 it claims bootmgr file is missing...a quick restart fixes this. Happens very rarely, no problems with hibernate/sleep mode. Drive maintains about 200-350GB worth of data on the drive with virus scans weekly and drive optimization monthly.
Should you decide to purchase this drive, I recommend you also puchase an external USB case for it, if you wish to copy/clone your existing operating system and data. You DO NOT need to purchase a special cable or cloning software if you get the external case; save your money. Here's the process for Windows:
1) Install the hybrid drive into the case; this takes less than 2 minutes.
2) Go to the Seagate website and download "Drive Wizard."
3) Install Drive Wizard on your computer.
4) Plug the drive into a USB port.
5) Right-click on My Computer, select manage, select drive management, select the new drive and make it active.
6) Run Drive Wizard, select clone and choose your source drive, making the destination drive your new 500 GB drive.
7) The software will then clone the drive. This can take some time.
8) When done, turn off your computer, swap the drives, and reboot. You can put the old drive into the external case for backup and extra external storage.
Here's a comparison of performance. With an old Seagate 80GB 5400rpm drive, the boot times for Windows XP were:
Windows spash screen to logon screen: 58 seconds
Logon entered to desktop being usable: 1 minute, 1 second
AFTER the installation of this drive and several reboots/uses of favorite programs:
Windows splash screen to logon screen: 18 seconds
Logon entered to desktop being usable: 30 seconds
Programs like Photoshop CS2 or Nikon Capture NX load much, much quicker about 1/5th the time it previously took.
Issues uncovered: I needed to reactivate Photoshop CS2 after the drive swap, which was simple online process. Also, my Intel PROset wireless management had issues connecting wirelessly; this was resolved by deleting the wireless profiles and manually re-entering the profile. Windows Wireless management (Windows Zero Configuration) had no issues, so another workaround was to stop using Intel PROset wireless. Indeed, Windows Zero Configuration is much faster at loading than Intel PROset, but that's another tale. No other issues occurred during this upgrade.
So, this drive is a great investment--all the size of a regular hard drive, and most of the speed of a solid state drive, without the ridiculously high cost. I do own an SSD for my hand-built desktop and that is ridiculously fast, with logon to desktop usability time of 7 seconds. This drive isn't as fast as that, but it's definitely waaay faster than a standard 5400 rpm notebook drive.
