this came with my asus gl503ge and it is fast file transfer but is always at 100% disk usage need an upgrade badly


Average

Not my best buy. On a (quite) cluttered system (2/3 to 3/4 of the disk full) on a mainstream laptop (with an Intel i3 CPU), I saw no difference between this and my preview built-in HGST 5K1000, it disappointed me. It's only after a few months of still no good latency and speed that I saw that this model, even if it's widely used, is not better than a classic 7200 rpm hard drive.


Terrible

It generates more heat than SSDs and slower than 7200 rpm HDDs! When it's used as an external drive, it sometimes lose our precious data! You're fired, FireCuda!

Disk started mulfunctioning 3 times in a year

This SSHD came with my ASUS TufFX504 laptop. And its absolutely slow. I'm looking for an upgrade
