From the Manufacturer
Break through performance barriers
Now, with a Seagate Laptop Solid State Hybrid Drive (SSHD), you can experience the fast performance of a solid state drive for a fraction of the cost. 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 on a hard drive budget
Seagate Laptop SSHD leverages several gigabytes of NAND flash technology to deliver the performance benefits of solid state drives. SSHD is 4× faster than standard 7200 RPM hard drives*; they improve system-level performance by an average of 20%; and you'll get far faster bootups.
*As measured by PC Mark Vantage benchmark software
Capacity without compromise
Solid state drives are typically only affordable in very low capacities, but there's no need to compromise with Laptop SSHD. Choose from 500GB and 1TB models at prices that make sense.
Works in any laptop
Seagate Laptop SSHD installs and communicates with your laptop exactly like a standard hard drive. SSHD is fully compatible with standard SATA technology, and there's no need to worry about what OS you're using: SSHD is OS-, driver- and software- independent.
Windows 8 bootups in less than ten seconds
Seagate Laptop SSHD delivers the 'instant-on' experience you crave, cutting boot times by 40-60% compared to standard hard drives. Plus, with Windows 8 support you'll experience a new standard in responsiveness: Startup-to-ready in less than ten seconds.
Performance that adapts to you
Seagate Adaptive Memory technology is the secret to Laptop SSHD's stunning responsiveness. This 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.
By blending solid state storage with a traditional hard drive, Laptop SSHD reduces the wear issues associated with both technologies. Mechanical wear and tear to the hard drive is reduced since frequently-used data gets stored in the solid state memory. This also reduces wear on the solid state memory by minimizing the frequency of data erasures and rewrites. Rest easy knowing that your Seagate Laptop SSHD will help protect your precious data even as it delivers mind-blowing performance.
