Originally had a WD Black 1TB (since 2010!) but it is just too noisy, replaced with this hybrid Seagate.
The disk is intended to be used as windows backup (Macrium Reflect), virtual machine storage and media when editing videos.
Absolute throughput is lower than the WD but day to day usage is way faster because of the SSD caching.
No more noise except when it occasionally spins up.
i wanted a 2.5 inch drive to stick on the tray behind the motherboard it does its job
Needed a new mechanical HDD since my old Western Digital 1TB Black was pushing almost 8 years. I also wanted a 2.5" drive due to the radiator taking out the 3.5" drive bays in the main and lower bay. This is where my games are loaded and hopefully after playing the same game a few times it'll get faster due to being a hybrid drive.
not very fast but still usable for certain things
Holds everything in place, will eventually get 2 new drives and raid them for redundancy not performance
