The 3.5" version looks too heavy to stay straight when installed. They should have put the HDD closer to the bracket.

Great! now all i need to install the card is scaffolding. Might need to buy a hard hat just in case.

I can understand a SSD on PCIe for increased bandwidth but WTF is the point of a HD on PCIe?

They are HYBRID drives that use flash as cache.

This way, you get most of the benefit of SSD's performance without sacrificing space. The 2TB model will probably end up costing over $300 though.

Hybrid drives are well within the bandwidth limitations of SATA III.

I'd rather have SSD and HDD separate and decide on what I want to load faster

That depends in the implementation. SuperTalent quotes 800MB/s for their hybrid drives which would exceed SATA3's theoretical capacity by about 33%.
