"Must Have as Notebook HDD Upgrade."4.5 starson by stvadim
Pros: - SSD like Performance
- Cost compared to SSD
- 7200 RPM in 2.5 drive
- 750GB Storage Space
Cons: - If Cloning from old drive there is issue about Partition Alignment for Advanced Format Drive.
- Lack of Manufacturers Specific Utility for OS optimization to use hybrid drive. Can be done manually
- Time needed for drive to "learn"
Summary: Momentus XT 750GB Hybrid drive is perfect if you want to get SSD like performance on your laptop not compromising available disk space.
And SSD like performance is achieved in my case (several weeks using this drive in my W7 Home Premuim SP1 VAIO F Series Laptop).
A soon as windows start time become point of concern you will definitely be satisfied with 20-30sec boot/start-up time.
Also frequent use application are starting in no-time. Basic MS Office 2010 Applications for example - 1-2 sec to start just after reboot. Some utilities pointed out that drive partitions alignment is incorrect after Cloning from previous HDD, and no utilities available to make alignment without data loss (Paragon Patrition Alignment Tool Failed in my case). Whus fresh W7 install took place.
Thanks for your submission!
