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.
