Seagate Desktop 3.5″ 4TB Solid State Hybrid Drive Review


In today's market, there are countless storage options out there for

you to choose for your current system or for a new build that you are

planning and in general we find one of two main options being selected

for the primary boot drive – this being either a hard drive which

offers up large storage capacities, or a solid state drive that mainly

offers up the speed.  In the OEM sector, the operating system is

typically installed on to a hard drive, whilst custom-built systems

from the like of Overclockers UK and PC Spe[censored]t use either hard

drives or the faster technology that a solid state drive has to offer

based on the target audience and the price point.


When we look at where we can boost the performance of a system, be it

a pre-built system that is already owned, or one that is in the

process of being “spec'd†up, one of the key areas where

performance can be gained is through the storage medium, but even in

today's market, the price per GB of storage that a SSD sees over that

of a hard drive is still quite high. This premium for SSD performance

can in some instances leave users with quite a dilemma; do you choose

space or performance?  One option that many say you should go down is

to buy a SSD for the boot drive and then a secondary hard drive for

the volume, but although the price of entry-level solid state products

is far more affordable than it was only a year or to back, by the time

you take the price of a hard drive into account, the cost is still

fairly expensive for some. Naturally the other logical route that many

users see is to simply go down the mechanical drive route and

sacrifice performance in favour of purchase cost and the larger

volumes that are on offer.
