User Review: I guess if I had to say something, it's that it takes a bit for the drive to "learn" what applications you use before it can achieve its maximum potential speeds. Other Thoughts: The drives uses algo[...]

Nextag Editorial Review

Combining the finest features of mechanical hard drives and SSDs, Seagate's Momentus XT manages an excellent blend of capacity, performance, and price.
Whether you're buying storage for a laptop or for a desktop, your choice for a while has been limited to hard drives (inexpensive, lots of capacity, relatively slow) or solid-state drives (expensive, limited capacity, super-fast). Desktop users could split the difference with a 10,000rpm hard drive like Western Digital's Velociraptor, but laptop users who needed small drives had to sacrifice either speed or a significant portion of their bank accounts.

Excellent Hard Drive Choice
"...She went from a 25-30 second boot up time to a 10 second boot up time (and also got rid of the freezing problems). Of course, she doesn't remember it being a 30 second boot up time, she just thinks that 10 seconds is normal, but that's her problem, not the drives.
The Momentus XT is doing a brilliant job.

Completely amazed, great HDD
"...Bought for 2 year old white Macbook.
Installation from scratch, including complete migration from time machine (using a seagate freeagent go drive), took under 2 hours, and computer turned back on, exactly as it was, all programs, passwords, and desktop items were there.
Boot up is ridiculously fast, spotlight no longer hesitates as it searches, it's instant as you type, and quieter than original 120gb drive (seagate momentus coincidentally), programs snap open after a few hours...." by BAYSHORE42, Aug 19, 2011
Innovative design, great value
Bought the drive based on the reviews here, and had tech support clone my OEM WD Scorpio 320GB HDD to this hybrid drive.
Got it home and booted up Windows, 34 seconds to login same as the stock HDD, then used several of my most oft used sites, programs, and apps before restarting the laptop, this proceedure was followed before each restart, by the fourth boot the time to login had been reduced to just 23 seconds!..." by Ed, Aug 3, 2010
Very Happy
Didn't expect much when I ordered it.
Took forever to get, but was well worth the wait...." by speedo, Sep 5, 2010
Does the job...
boots quick and adapts to the software you use the most....." by theMOTH, May 10, 2011
Works great! (When it works)
Great drive, replaced stock 5400rpm 320Gb in laptop (4Gb DDR3, i3-330M 2.13GHz).
Fast boot time (time to login: about 30 sec, time to desktop with all services loaded about 1 min) hooks sometimes though (hard boot necessary) and it's quite loud...." by Sesante, Oct 19, 2011
Best Investment for any Laptop
"...Having tried various high speed drives including several SSD's, I can say this is one of the best I have ever used.
I've been researching this drive for several months and I trust Seagate so I made the jump.
I installed it in a 2011 13'' MacBook Pro and I could immediately notice a performance difference...." by ApplGuy, Jul 18, 2010
Speedy, Inexpensive and Learns Fast!
Here are my tests: Original 200GB Drive: boot time - 52 sec Login and retrieve mail - 49 sec Total - 1 min.
41 sec New hybrid drive day 1: boot time - 32 sec Login and retrieve mail - 26 sec Total - 58 sec New hybrid drive day 7: boot time - 26 sec Login and retrieve mail - 9 sec Total - 37 sec..." by DougR, Jul 14, 2010
Excellent Value for the price
I agree with most of the reviews, Easy to install (for an experienced user) and does exactly what is says it dose, It IS A Standard HDD but the Solid State portion and performances is what sets it apart from other HDD's.
And if you want capacity AND performance, THIS IS THE DRIVE you want!..." by jim, Jul 14, 2011
Momentus XT DOA
arrived DOA
..." by Hart, Sep 20, 2010
Not impressed
"...Thing is that there hasn't been any increase in speed, at all. It still takes my laptop 30 seconds to boot up and programs I use all the time like Outlook, Mailwasher, or Excel still take the same amount of time come up.
The drive I replaced was a standard Seagate 500 gig 7200 RPM unit that came with the laptop (ASUS G73).
Seagate has an iffy reputation, and I have had their drives fail in the past but decided it wad time to give them another chance...." by motomecanica, Oct 25, 2010
Not as expected
Disk is not as low consumption as stated, it actually drains your battery faster, not as quiet as the 160Gb that originally came on Laptop, the boot time and load time improved just a tinny bit few secs here and there, the drive will stop spinning and all the sudden start the spin on full blast for no apparent reason, vibrates like it is a CD or a DVD on the drive, the idea is great but guessing is to new and they need to work on the buggs, go to the manufacturer website and read the forums for the Momentus XT I'm not the first one experiencing this behaviour on this drives.
not worth pay double the price of a Htachi 500GB, will return this and get a normal real Low Cosuption 500GB...." by RR, Jul 6, 2010
Spindle Speed?
Have not purchased this yet - was just wondering why the manufacturer listed Spindle Speed in the specifications.
It seems their ad department doesn't understand what it is they are supposed to selling...." by Shanty, Dec 28, 2011
For intensive programs
I believe what is being missed on most of these reviews This hard drive, while having the 4GB solid state memory, this drive only shines in graphics and program intensive work.
Say you ate doing video editing or gaming...."
