I am looking for 1tb Hybrid hard drives, I have used the seagate momentus 750gb hybrid hard drive in an old laptop but now I want to see if I can get more storage but still keep the speed of a hybrid drive.

My current laptop is a Toshiba Qosmio X875-Q7190, so I have two Hard Drive bays which are currently occupied by two 500gb 7200 RPM SATA drives.

I am looking to either update one drive to the hybrid drive and then move my OS to that drive or I may upgrade both and see if I can configure a raid storage setup (0 or 1).

I know Solid state would be faster but I'm not prepared to spend out the sort of cash required to get the 1TB option.

Any help or advise would be appreciated.

If you laptop can handle a 9.5mm height drive, then the 1Tb Seagate hybrid will fit, model ST1000LM014. HERE is more info on the drive.
