  1. 1) From the price it is good deal.

    2) It is HDD+ small SSD, after restarting Windows 7 a few times and opening applications like Adobe Photoshop CS5, Microsoft Word that they opened faster.

    3) For game they are same but it open or load game faster.

    Is a 4GB SSD really enough to make that much of an improvement? Is there any way to fully control what is on the SSD and what is on the HDD?


    To make sure I understand..... This is a 7200 RPM hard drive with a small SSD built in and it writes to the SSD what it deans as most important?
  3. That is SSD Caches + HDD, caching reads but not for writing. read the review http://www.anandtech.com/show/5160/seagate-2nd-generation-momentus-xt-750gb-hybrid-hdd-review

    Yes get the real SSD is much better.
