5* Seagate Desktop SSHD

I bought this drive to replace a smaller drive which was slower as well, this new one is much faster and quieter than the previous one. the pc boots much better and I think that's due to the built in SSD part, I just cloned the entire drive and resized the partition so no spending all day reinstalling everything , I would recommend this drive as a good buy at a great price
5* sshd drive

2 in one ! a Hybrid of both SSD and HDD drive with an SSD for speed with a HDD hanging on the back with massive storage.
4* Nice fast Hybrid but only formated at 931GB instead of 1024GB!

Great Hybrid drive. I have noticed a significant increase in boot time, game load times and even a small boost of FPS in the games installed on the hybrid drive. Altho I am confused as my old WD Caviar SATA3 6GB/S 500GB, gave a windows index score of 5.9 and nothing has changed since I reinstalled windows on the new drive and placed the old 500GB disk as the 'slave' altho with SATA this is kinda irrelevant anyway. Also as in title windows 7 installer only let me use this drive as it seemed to be pre formatted at 931GB. This sounds a little petty but for a 1TB drive id expect it to atleast meet the standards of what 1 Terabyte means. Overall its a new appreciated piece of hardware for my gaming PC altho it did not change my windows index score as everything else is between 7.5-7.7 whilst the hybrid remains 5.9. BT did their part well with standard delivery by RM within 3 days of dispatch order, came on 2nd or 3rd day :)
4* Windows index score 5.9 and 931 GB instead of 1024 ?

Id also agree with another reviewer ( Ben Peers ) i could write the exact same review actually because my experience is more or less the same ! this Seagate SSHD gets a windows index score of 5.9 the same as my Western Digital Scorpio Blue hard drive dated 2009 5400rpm i would expect the new drive to have a higher index score ? i mabe using the wrong device driver for this drive i will try Seagate web page for SSHD drive support ! I should state that the speed is better overall on my PC the confusion is mainly over the Windows index scores !
