This is a very nice drive, handy with the SSD cache, and 2TB holds all of my games and my Steam library. Would highly recommend, especially considering the minute price increase from a standard 2TB drive.

Hybrid drives get a bad reputation and I don't see why. Running some tests, this is faster than, for example, a wd blue. My sister uses it primarily for media storage and game storage, and its pretty fast.

Got the Hybrid instead of the HDD. It´s fast.

The Seagate 2Tb SSHD replaced a 1TB WD HDD which was super full. Another SSD wouldnt fit the budget so an SSHD was worth it. The HDD performed extremely well so this SSHD will perform better hopefully. I put all of my games, movies, photos and etc on it.

I didn't wanna go above a certain budget so I opted for a Seagate hybrid, 2TB is really a good storage space for me for now, and it's faster somewhat than a standard hard drive.

from completed build Second-Hand Computer, and a first hand experience for troubleshooting.
Fast for an HDD even if it is a Hybrid drive. Mainly used for mass-storage as well as a seperate partition for a complete system image and back-up.

from completed build A modest gamer rig (My first build)
since this was my 1st build i wanted to keep it simple as possible and I shy'd away from using 2 drives, (ssd/hard drive). i gotta say i'm impressed with this hybrid drive.. i definitely notice big difference in load times compared to the standard HD i had in my previous pc.. although, there is a learning curve for the hybrid to "learn" what you use often.. after around 10-12 reboots, things really speed up.. is it as good as a ssd combo? no not quite,.. but i'm very happy with it

from completed build Red Dwarf - Back In The Red
Purchased when they first came out to see if it would make any difference to game loading times as I played a lot more back then. Honestly the result is barely noticeable if you're constantly loading the same game. Not sure how the newer models fair with a larger cache and better optimised firmware but I wouldn't get another SSHD for this use again.
