Excellent

Owned one for ~3 months. Average speeds are not what I expected. Performance has mostly been the same as an old samsung I had which achieved avg read speeds of 100MB/s. My most recent bench suggests it's not running at optimal performance. see below: http://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/5513683 Interestingly the all time average is actually lower than the traditional 2TB Barracuda model which to me seems that in practice this SSHD does not live up to its theoretical speeds. I thought it would operate the same as the Barracuda with the added bonus of a 8BG SSD cache for regularly used data. I have not once witnessed speeds close to SSD speed, or above a fully mechanical drive for that matter. Save some coin and get the Barracuda.
