The Seagate Desktop SSHD is a Solid State Hard Drive (SSHD). The 8GBs of MLC NAND flash built into this model help facilitate better performance than a purely mechanical drive. Peak sequential read/write speeds are above average at 190 MB/s. The 2TB SSHD has consistently demonstrated class leading 4k random write speeds in the region of 5.0 MB/s. 4K read speeds are in the region of 0.7-0.9 MB/s which is well above average, but not record breaking. Overall the performance increases attributable to the NAND flash are very noticeable in the area of small file 4K performance where the SSHD dominates the competition. In terms of sequential speeds, the Seagate also offers better average sequential performance than most mechanical 2TB hard drives. From a value for money perspective, the 2TB SSHD is well above average, it has a brilliant 4k performance profile, strong sequential speeds and only a slightly above average price. [Dec '13 HDrivePro]

Installed this recently, so this is an early rating, but so far so good- noticeable speed increase for basic functions over my original 1Tb WD.

Just installed in mid 2011 iMac to replace a Barracuda 7200.12 This SSHD is great. Fast where it needs to be and reasonable price. Great compromise while SSD prices are still comparably high—Oct '15

I just ran a windows experience index score on a brand new computer with this hard drive. It gave me a score of 5.9. My last hard drive was a 7.2 and getting a little old. I'm really disappointed since the computer was over $1000.00

Läuft tatsächlich besser als die ST2000DM001 und die ST3000DM001 (hätte es nicht gedacht) aber der Aufpreis von ca. 30% gegenüber den anderen Platten die ich auch noch im Rechner habe, lohnt meiner Meinung nach nicht. SSHD und die HDs 2000dm/3000dm sind schon die besten HDs, SSHD muss man nicht unbedingt haben, wenn nicht gerade so wie so ein Wechsel ansteht (wie bei mir). Empfehle lieber die 50-60€ auszugeben und eine 120GB SSD (Kingston V300 reicht, etwas besser Samsung 840 Evo) zu kaufen und dort WIN zu installieren! Rest der Bilder, Videos, Musik und Programme einfach auf einer andere HD auslagern. Beste Kombi überhaupt! SSD 120gb + 2tb oder 3tb HD als "D: Platte" für den Rest :) Gruß, Tom
