For what I paid for this - being a daily deal - I can't complain. 6tb more of storage to pop into the NAS. I've had it for a few months with no issues.

After one year of use as a secondary drive, it prevents my computer from booting up. Had to replace it with a WD drive. The reliability of this drive is really in question which is quite consistent with many other reviews on web.

Dear Tom,

If possible, please try running our self-booting "Seatools for DOS" on the drive so we can determine the drive status. Here is a link to this software:

The disc kit came with signal and power cables along with a quick start guide which was easy to follow for the mechnaical installation. The web site provided a couple of videos, which differed slightly from the DiscWizard software but were largely to the point. There is also a comprehensive online manual which I referenced intermittently. After the installation, which took about 30 minutes in this XPS 8500, the system booted normally and the utility was used first to establish the clone of the original disc. The system was then shutdown and the signal cables swapped to make this new drive the boot C: drive. All very tidy. The DiscWizard is then used to partition the unused space on this 4TB drive into useable disc space. The original boot drive remains in place and fully functional like any other add on internal drive. My fears going in were that it would not be a turnkey mechanical replacement or that the data on the original boot drive would be jeopardized but it all just went smoothly. After I gain more history I'll reformat the original disc to provide another 2TB to the system. Who would have thought?

Well, I got away with it, just like they said: SSD speed without the SSD expense or space limitations. I had a 1T SSD drive as my primarily drive (Windows 7 desktop), and as I had hoped, it sped up everything tremendously, including bootup and nuts and bolts operations. But the 1T filled up quickly, and SSD drives HATE to have little or no room left on them -- they get revenge in really horrible, unpredictable ways. So how to get enough data off the c: drive to make it happy again? Get a second drive and keep all my data on that. I got this 4T hybrid drive as my D: drive, put my data on that while leaving all the programs on the C: drive (plus a "phantom default user," since Windows wants to find at least one user on the drive the OS is on), and I see no perceivable difference between the speed of the c: drive (SSD) and of the d: drive (SSHD). I didn't do any of those objective tests -- I was only interested in my subjective reaction. And I was VERY happy with it. If I needed a new C: drive, I'd get one of these and forget the expense of the SSD. Do, however, make sure you hook it up to a SATA 6 controller and not a SATA 3 controller. That way, you get the full benefit of the speed -- no sense plugging a fast drive into a slow controller!
