FireCuda SSHD - Vicious Performance

Not as fast as a true SSD, but is much faster than a standard HDD. Purchased as a second drive for my Dell Precision M4800. Loads large files and games incredibly fast for a spinner type drive, especially one that operates at only 5400RPM. Runs cool and file transfers are lightning fast. Couldnt ask for a better drive for the money.

I had a bad experience with Seagate before. I had two 3.5" Barracuda drives that were brand new die within months of each other. For the longest time I swore off of Seagate and went with Western Digital. Not sure what got me to try them again. Name, price, certainly didnt hurt. Overall, Im very happy with it and that I decided to give Seagate another chance. If this drive holds up, I will start considering Seagate much more from now on.

Firecuda 1TB

Works as it should. Gets quicker with time. Not as fast as an ssd but not the price of one either. Faster than a traditional drive and for $60.00 you can't go wrong. Sea gate drive wizard makes moving everything to the new drive painless. Took about 30'minutes to clone my 160gb ssd to this drive. Had 140gb of data. Dell D830 laptop. 6gb ram. Secondary had tray was used for data migration. Worked perfectly. Windows and all software is still activated too. This was way too easy.Read full review...

Great upgrade for a 5+ year old laptop

Awesome drive. Took some steps to cut down on swappiness (set to 1) as advised with other guides concerning SSD's on linux. Although this drive is not an SSD, it does have an SSD component. On Windows there's not much you can do. It is a direct replacement for an old laptop hard drive.Read full review...

Great hardrive replacement

Had a failing hard drive in a Dell laptop. I have used the firecuda before in my PS4 with no problems at all (2TB). This 1TB worked great as an upgrade for my Dell and really love the start up and shut down speeds for Windows. Price and reliability is well worth it for a hybrid drive. Thank You.Read full review...

Sensible performance update

I've been using this now for about 6 months on an Intel Core i3 laptop (yawn). But the processor isn't what dogs a system, its the hard drive. There is a noticeable performance improvement over my old non-hybrid hard drive. Probably a bigger improvement than a one-step up processor upgrade - certainly cheaper (I had a buyer for my old drive).I feel I got a good price/performance ratio compared to regular drives or SSD.Read full review...

Good investment for speeding up your operating system.

Computer boots much faster now. Almost as fast as the solid state drive that I had installed. The solid state drive failed in 6 months, The FireCuda is still working after a year. The FireCuda has much more storage capacity. Great deal I am very satisfied with this product. I had not thought much of Seagate drives in the past they didn't seem to last for me. This product has exceeded my expectations. Great deal for the price.Read full review...

Great Xbox replacement drive.

Works great to replace Xbox hard drive on Xbox one. There are some great tutorials on youtube on how to fix the error E101, etc codes. It involved a little work with a usb drive and copying and pasting files, but it’s woeth it!Read full review...

Smooth Gaming

This hybrid drive has done an excellent job of increasing my storage capacity and improving the gaming performance of my laptop at an economical price. The drive was easy to install and my laptop was up and running in no time. If you can't afford to purchase a SSD, then this is a great alternative.Read full review...
