Terrible (edit your comment) Add link

Has SMR(Shingled) and MTC. With both of those it moves your data around on the disk (even data that was written long ago and not touched by the OS/you), this increases the chance of data loss (a little? 2x? 5x+? Who know, it depends on where your data is on the disk and as a result how often the drive decided to move/re-write it) This drive does have a flash(SSD) cache, but still only 8GB. Does it utilize this as a write cache since it has to move big chunks of data (just so it can be re-written)? The only thing this drive has over ST1000DX001 is price. But that's because they are selling you a cheaper drive that is slower under a lot of circumstances. (massively slower in certain semi-less common cases -- like copying semi-large amounts of data to the drive, or installing a game/software with a large disk footprint)

Decent SSHD that I was able to use for about a year before switching to an SSD.
