one is a hybrid drive. It also has a larger cache. Essentially it's like an SSD combined with a hard drive. I can't say whether to buy it or not because I don't know very much about hybrid drives.

Thanks for letting me know!

This is an old video. The Firecuda is an sshd and the barracuda is a hdd. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6iBhf8rpobo Should give you a good idea the difference though.

THanks for the video, that was really helpful! I had one more question, would the SSHD only work on certain types of PC's or any PC?

All pc's.

Hybrids aren't really worth buying since you can get a 2TB HDD + 120GB SSD for the same price or cheaper and the SSD will perform much better.
