Product Description

Amazon.ca Product Description

The Seagate Momentus XT drive offers hybrid storage with Adaptive Memory technology, enabling the drive to deliver higher capacities up to 500 GB and SSD-like performance. The Momentus XT drive is designed for all standard laptop PCs and is OS-, driver- and software independent, making this drive easy to integrate and easy to use. Adaptive Memory technology enables the drive to tailor its performance to the user. Whether you are gaming, editing digital media or crunching numbers, the performance is optimized and ready for your next move. Adaptive Memory technology is a Seagate data management technique that constantly monitors and quickly recalls data usage and preferences.

When the user requires the data or application file, it already sits in an instantly accessible location, thereby customizing system performance for the user. Constant monitoring dynamically improves overall response time based on personal usage. You can perform at your best no matter how you use your laptop PC.

Perform as advertised. I replaced the drive on my macbook pro 4,1 own my own after watching a few tutorials on line. Its important to zero data the drive before OS installation. I'm very please w/ the drive. excellent performance and so far very reliable.

I've been using Seagate internal drives for years and Iomega externals the same and recently Seagate GoFlex desk drives.
I have a day one release 60 gig PS3 which I upgraded to a 250 Toshiba that pulled from my MBP 15" a few months ago. Prior to the upgrade I had a YLOD which I repaired and life was good again. I noticed the fan was running louder since that upgrade. Ok still fine. Two months later YLOD again. So I repaired again. Running out of space again I searched for a replacement 500 or 750 for my big black beauty. Being in graphics and using Macs, doing upgrades and the sort I get technology and know the importance of a big data cache. Seeing such a low price on a Hybrid drive I thought I'd give it a go. It's been in for a couple of days now and I have noticed a small speed increase in load times but mainly the SYSTEM RUNS COOLER. The fan runs very quiet now opposed to what speed it ran last week. Always vertical and open spaced around, running Netflix for a while only make the fan go to level 2. ( Level 4, top speed is a leaf blower in you living room)
I highly recommend this drive for someone doing an upgrade. For the 30 dollars more than a standard 5400 rpm drive, it is a little faster, ( the PS3 has a slow data bus) but mainly your system will run cooler potentially saving your PS3 from heat stroke.

This hard drive is a really good replacement for the regular 5400rpm drive that comes in most notebooks. It is noticeably faster to load my commonly used programs, Word, Excel etc and way faster on the Adobe suite. Amazon's price was very competitive but it appears they have no idea how to pack a drive correctly for shipment as it arrived laying loose on the bottom of a larger box with a small bit of bubble wrap thrown in on top. Fortunately the drive was fine.

I bought this drive to replace the older one in my MacBook Pro. So far it has performed very well. Commonly used applications pop up a lot faster than before. However, I do wish there's more cache on the drive as I constantly use large files. Nevertheless, it has performed reasonably well and it's very quiet.

Overall, it's a good product. It has indeed improved speed over normal hardrives, but it's nowhere near a SSD performance. Then again the price is nowhere near a SSD ;-). Very smooth and pretty silent.

This hard drive's specs looked amazing on paper; unfortunately, it arrived DOA. It would power-up and the platter would spin, but you couldn't access the unit. Oddly enough I had the exact same thing happen with a different drive 3 months earlier... it was also a seagate.

BTW. Amazon really needs to learn how package their product better. They put the drive on the very bottom of a large box and covered it in padding on top... essentially leaving a delicate hard drive exposed to damage on the bottom.

I could not say any bad thing of this Hybrid (keep fingers crossed). Replaced the same size HDD but 5400rpm in my laptop. Win7 starts now way faster, less noise from the cooling fan, which means less heat and most likely longer battery usage, no vibration. Difficult to measure the application performance, I might be bias, but to me is much better.

This bad boy is exactly what you think it is; cheap power. My laptop has never turned on quicker than with this. I'm sure a real SSD would be faster, but this thing is just as good, with decent space to boot. Recommended purchase for sure!
