Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Boot

Boot:
"A couple of operating systems (Yosemite and Mavericks) reside there for the case of failure on the main boot solid state drive."
_
")8) Clone the old drive to the new one using CCC (do the recovery HD option for sure)9) Verify the new drive using DU; repair any errors.10) Boot from new drive to make sure it's working ok and that everything runs.11) Voila! "
_
"Previous to the drive being switched out the boot up time was ridiculous and took forever even with 8 gb or ram 2+ minutes."
_
"Having first upgraded the CPU (AMD APU) from an A6-4400m to an A10-4600m, I got this hard drive, figuring I would be able to beat the 21second boot up times I'd been getting with the factory HGST SATA 5,400 RPM HDD."
_
"Now that I have a good 10-12 full boots using the new drive, I'm seeing my boot time is right at 17 seconds."
_
"Still, 17 seconds to boot into Windows 8.1 seems pretty impressive to me."
_
"This hard drive gives you the best of both world being a hybrid drive which makes boot times that are cut in half or better, and the solid state memory is adaptive to your most used programs so it accesses them very quickly."
_
"The drive was a good price, easy to install, and seems to have speeded up the boot process that was pretty slow on my old drive."

Speed

Speed:
"Seagate's warranty system is slow and painful compared to other manufactures."
_

_
"It was painfully slow before this upgrade."
_
"I had purchased Office Depot this Seagate 1TB SSHD is running my used Lenovo G580 laptop Preinstalled Windows 8 64-Bit upgraded Windows 8.1 can tested Crystal Disk benchmark also 36Mb s reading and 115Mb s Writing won't speed up 6Gb s is so however wrong? "
_
"As this drive only has an 8GB cache drive compared to the 32GB on one of my other hybrid drives, I could image that if you have a very large set of frequently used files, it may not perform as well."
_
"Unfortunately, I'm also not seeing any obvious speed improvements; the Windows Experience drive number is stuck at the same 5.9 my old drive showed."
_
"its good to have 1 tb HD and the speed of SSD."
_

Warranty

Warranty:
"Seagate's warranty system is slow and painful compared to other manufactures."
_
"I went there and retried the warranty check for my failed hybrid drive one more time."
_
"My eventual outcome was positive, but highlights that warranty matters because sometimes thing go wrong."
_
"The original negative warranty experience was also shared by others as reported in comments."
_
"With respect to my experience where my purchased from Amazon drive was refused warranty replacement, he said there was a one character difference in the serial numbers from my February 2013 failed warranty attempt and the successful attempt in June."
_
"This product has a 3-year limited warranty, which is good, but not great since some hard drives have a 5-year warranty."
_
"After reading a comment on this review I am happy to report I learned that Jack had validated the warranty on a Seagate OEM hybrid drive at the Seagate site."
_
"The STBD1000400 kit just has a nicer cardboard box and a printed warranty booklet, and you may discard the box after installing the hard drive anyway; that is the only difference between both model numbers."
