Product Description


The Seagate Desktop SSHD combines a high capacity hard drive and 8GB of solid-state MLC flash to add SSD like performance to any desktop. The Desktop SSHD boots and launches applications within seconds of a solid state drive, but is more cost efficient because the combined technology leverages the cost efficiency of a hard disk drive. Adaptive Memory technology intelligently monitors the frequently used files and stores them in the solid state memory for blazing fast recall. The SATA 6Gb/s NCQ interface with 64 MB cache enables the use of the industry's latest and fastest hard drive controllers while providing backward compatibility to SATA 3Gb/s systems. The Desktop SSHD is designed to work in most desktop systems without the need for special drivers or software to install and configure. It installs and works just like a hard drive only faster. Simultaneously run multiple applications like video and photography editing, video playback and computer games. Backed by a 3 year limited warranty.

Break-Through Performance Barriers

With a Seagate Desktop Solid State Hybrid Drive (SSHD) kit, you can experience SSD-like performance for a fraction of the cost. Desktop SSHD fuses solid state storage with a traditional hard drive to deliver the best of both worlds: Blazing-fast performance and high capacities at prices that work.

Solid State Speed. Hard Drive Budget.

Seagate Desktop SSHD leverages several gigabytes of NAND flash storage to deliver the performance benefits of solid state drives. Desktop SSHD is 4x faster than standard 7200 RPM hard drives*; it improves system-level performance by an average of 20%; and you'll get far faster bootups.

*As measured by PC Mark Vantage benchmark software.

Size Matters. Get up to 4TB of Gaming Storage.

No need to sacrifice capacity for performance.

- 1-4TB of massive storage capacity.

- 8GB integrated NAND Flash

- More room for all your games.

Performance that Adapts to You

Seagate Adaptive Memory technology is the secret to Desktop SSHD's stunning responsiveness. Adaptive Memory software learns what data you use most then copies it to the drive's solid state memory, where it can be accessed in an instant.

Installs with Ease

Seagate Desktop SSHD installs and works with your desktop computer exactly like a standard hard drive. It's fully compatible with standard SATA technology, and there's no need to worry about what OS you're using: Desktop SSHD is compatible with most major operating systems and do not require any special drivers or sotware to make it run.

I've been using an SSD as a boot drive on my Windows desktop so I can speak from experience when I say that this drive doesn't really come close to it when it comes to speed. Both are much faster than a standard drive, so the difference is only a matter of seconds, though. And the solid state drive cost nearly as much as this drive but has a fraction of the storage, only enough to hold my operating system and a few of my most frequently used programs. Everything else has to run off a second drive. This drive doesn't cost all that much more than a standard drive for the same storage, and still offers a nice boost in speed.

It works differently than a boot drive, as the computer does not recognize the solid state memory as a second drive, so you don't select which programs or files run off the drive. It only has 8GBs of solid state memory, so it couldn't even hold the operating system. Instead, the drive decides which files to store on the SSD, based on which of them are used most frequently. For that reason, the performance of the drive improves over time, as the drive learns and optimizes how it uses the limited solid state memory.

So far, I'm pleased with the drive. I really haven't noticed any differences between this one and disk based drives I've used, other than an increase in speed. It doesn't complicate things at all - the computer sees it as just another single drive. Having 2TB is nice, as I don't have to worry about space, even with a large collection of HD movies and games stored. Installing it wasn't any more difficult than other drives I've used either. If speed is your top priority, than there is no substitute for an SSD right now, but this is a nice compromise between speed and storage size at a decent price, if you're not worried about your computer taking a few more seconds to boot up.

I've included a short video so you can actually see my PC doing a complete restart. It's pretty fast, but the SSD was even faster.

Size: 2TB Verified Purchase
I purchased this drive after having great experience with the Momentus XT 500GB (first-gen) notebook SSHD over the last two years. The drive made a great improvement in boot, hibernation and application performance in my Lenovo Thinkpad X120e when an SSD at 500GB capacity would have cost nearly 10x as much as the 500GB SSHD in 2011. I decided to "preorder" this drive over a month ago and it arrived exactly when Amazon promised (late September.)

Upon opening the drive, it looks like a normal hard drive. I mounted it below my original drive that would eventually be pulled, and temporarily plugged it in to the SATA and power cable that my DVD-ROM drive was connected too. I decided to load Seagate's free data migration software (Acronis) which is used by many other OEM's such as Intel for their SSD's. Acronis software has always worked great for me in the past as isn't based on Linux (it appears to be Windows PE) like many "cheaper" migration tools that are often unable to copy Windows GPT partitions or hidden recovery partitions. Acronis data migration in my experience also supports most USB 3.0 and eSATA controllers if you are using an external means to migrate data (such as in a laptop.) I tested it's compatibility with my Texas Instruments USB 3.0 controller and my Marvell eSATA controller and both detected properly, enabling faster copying than over USB 2.0 in a laptop. In short, Seagate's migration software is excellent.

The migration of 1TB data took about 2.5 hours using internal SATA 3Gbps. After it was finished, I disconnected the old drive, connected the SSHD, and plugged my my optical drive back in.

Windows booted and everything looked fine.

Size: 1TB
Have a mid 2011 iMac with a 3Gbps SATA -500 GB that was running out of space. Plus was getting colored wheels more often inspite of 12GB RAM. SSD at 1TB was half the price of the iMAC which made no sense and the smaller capacity SSD's were ruled out- so this is where the Seagate SSHD 1TB comes in with the right value. The drive is pretty fast and I'm into this for a week only, hence the 4 stars. Amazon's shipping was fast, though the box was not the original Seagate one. Seems like some packaging cost was reduced. Performance wise, the machine feels like a new iMAC straight out of an Apple Store!. Getting this into an iMAC is harder than changing out an MBP HDD and also much harder than a desktop PC. But all said, it is quite doable. Here are the steps- I won't go into too much detail to keep things simple, just follow the links. There may be some differences depending on your iMAC model from 2011, but expect the basic steps to be more or less the same.
Step 1)
Move new SSHD into a USB enclosure. Use clonezilla ([...] to do a disk to disk back up.

Step 2)
As a clone, the new SSHD disk is partitioned exactly like the old disk- which means 500GB is left out- Use Disk Utility to expand the SSHD into 1TB.

Step 3)
Follow this Youtube link to see how to add a new disk to the iMac. You will need the suction for the glass( I used 2 old car GPS holder suction cups to do the job) and Torx T8 drivers ( Home Depot or Lowes). You need to stop at the part where the display and cables come off fully- everything that follows is not required if you are simply swapping out your current disk with a new SSHD

Step 4)
In the top- middle section you will find the HDD attached with 2 screws. Take off those screws and the 2 cables that connect the HDD.
