Seagate Thin SSHD 500GB Full Review - Third Generation Hybrid

Recommended Posts

Seagate recently announced and released their third generation of

laptop Solid State Hybrid Drives. Originally thier hybrids carried the

Momentus (laptop HDD) name forward, tacking on 'XT' to denote the

on-board caching ability. The Momentus XT was intriduced in a 500GB

(1st gen) and 750GB (2nd gen) model. The new line gets a new and

simple title - Laptop SSHD.

Quote: "Seagate appears to be leading the way in the mobile Hybrid

drive market. Each and every generation has pushed the envelope

further and come closer to native SSD speeds. The catch is those

speeds are only attained for data that is in the cache, and the meager

8GB of flash seems to be holding these devices back when in the hands

of more demanding power users with heavier workloads."
