5* I have my computer back; and it's even FASTER!

I was about to write off my iMac as 'space junk' when the new OS Mavericks came along and bloated up my system with un-necessary tasks. The computer became so slow, I just wanted to chuck it out. Then the helpful young lad at the Genius Bar made the super suggestion to max out my RAM and get an SSD/SSHD instead of shelling out for a whole new computer. Did just as he suggested and WOW! It's like getting a whole new computer. Startup times are now ridiculously fast. I'm not a heavy user who just surfs, watches movies and listens to music. For that kind of use, this computer feels fast again. Almost as fast as when I had Snow Leopard on my system. Get this, max out your RAM, and you can cheat Apple out of another sale for a few more years, all for under £100. Well done Seagate.
5* Try it.

Windows 7 Ultimate with all of my applications installed (30+), boots in 8 seconds. Beyond my expectations, since I have watched ssd vs sshd tests showing slower times.

Got this running on an Asus A88XM-A.
Installed Windows 7 on a 64Gb primary partition, the rest of the space divided and wrapped up in extended.

Windows experience score is in ERROR for this hard drive.
5* Very pleased

Installed in my iMac 2008. Feels like a new computer. The OS now loads up very quickly. This drive is good for users who just do a bit of surfing and watch movies.
5* System revived

I fitted this drive in the hope that it would make an ageing Windows 7, 64 bit system, a useable machine again. I could not be more pleased. I use the machine for browsing, general office tasks and a little music and video editing. This disc has improved boot times extraordinarily and the more I use the system, the faster it seems to become.
1* Sector errors within a few months and now failing

I bought this 2TB hybrid SSD in December 2014. I noticed average performance in my Microserver in which Windows Home Server was installed on the Seagate disk so installed Hard Disk Sentinel, which told me the drive was at 88% health. After just a few months. Not good.
It's since been worse and health of the drive is slowly dropping. I've run the Seagate diagnostics - well, tried to, it could only complete the quick test which told me the drive was knackered and needs replacing, the long test just caused the tools to crash.
I've now had to reinstall the OS on another disk (Clonezilla couldn't clone it because of the corrupted sectors), which is a ballache in itself, but I also have to wait for Seagate to receive it, check it and then send out a replacement. They do not have a facility for me to register my credit card and be sent a replacement first so they can charge me if I don't return the faulty one.
I won't touch Seagate again, sticking with Western Dig
