The good: The Seagate Laptop Thin SSHD offers noticeably faster boot time and better overall performance than regular hard drives at a much lower cost than solid-state drives.
The bad: The Seagate Laptop Thin SSHD's data transfer speed is slow. It comes with just 8GB of flash memory and spins at only 5,400rpm.
The bottom line: If you're looking for SSD-like performance at just a fraction of the cost, the Seagate Laptop Thin SSHD offers some gratification.
