    The SSD is of course much faster and 128GB is fine for installing the OS and a couple of necessary apps,but you definitely need a HDD with it.So if either of those will be your PC's only drive,then go with the Seagate one(however,the failure rate on Hybrid HDD's is higher than normal HDD's,so I'd recommend a normal HDD like WD Caviar Black);otherwise,as I said,get the Samsung as the drive for your OS and get a HDD for other things such as vids/pics etc.
  2. ssd all the way!as maziar said,128gb is enough os and some apps and games.samsung 830 128gb ssd for $175 is an absolute steal-

    very fast and more important thing it's very reliable.
  3. I agree.

    You should also use a program like Acronis True Image (WD and Seagate have free versions you can download) to make periodic backup IMAGES of Windows to a local or USB hard drive.
