Rating: 5/5 "Incredible"!!! May 27, 2016 This SSHD from Seagate has possibly been the best purchase for any of my macs,ever. The startup time is just flat amazing. I am currently running El Capitan on my 2012 i5 Mac Mini. The startup time ,before the hard drive switch, was 2 minutes 47 seconds. After the installation of the SSHD that time dropped to a jaw dropping 32 seconds! That is right. El Capitan startup time of 32 seconds. I timed it from the sound of the start up chime. Till my WD Cloud extension loaded. Which is the last thing to appear in the Apple menu bar along the top.

Rating: 5/5 1.0TB Seagate Laptop SSHD SATA Hybrid Drive February 12, 2016 I had a 500GB hybrid drive and loved it but it filled up fast, so I added it to my MacBook 6,1 to give it new life. This drive is currently running a MacBookPro 8,1. I am really sold on the hybrid drives if you need space but can't afford the full SSD. It's amazingly fast, considering it's a hybrid drive. My old 500GB Hybrid Drive was getting sluggish, and I reformatted it, and was surprised to discover it was zippy again. Lesson learned, sometimes you really do need to zero out hard drives and reinstall the OS form scratch.

Rating: 5/5 Outstanding, easy speed boost August 31, 2015 I replaced my MacBook Pro (2010) original 500gb HD with this hybrid. First, replacing the drive was easy, took less than an hour after cloning. The speed boost is obvious in start-up and working on business documents. I just got another year or two before replacing this MBPro.

Rating: 5/5 Increased boot speed July 13, 2015 Used with Mercury On-The-Go-Pro external drive case with Firewire 800 connection to act as boot drive for older iMac that is very slow to boot with internal hard drive. Yosemite took over 4 minutes to boot which has decreased to about 45 seconds with new drive. Easy setup and a marked improvement in all performance measures . computer is used mostly for photo manipulation and general household competing chores. Saved me buying an new iMac for less than $250.

Rating: 5/5 Nice upgrade June 29, 2015 I bought this to upgrade the hard drive on my Mid 2009 MacBook Pro - I needed more storage. The laptop was running very sluggish, but now, it is like a new laptop. And, the fan is not coming on as often!! Good price on a nice upgrade!

Rating: 5/5 Excellent quick upgrade! May 31, 2015 Running low on space, and watching things get slower to load, I was in the market for an SSD drive but with a SATA budget. This drive fit the bill, and the hybrid configuration has given my 2011 MBP some real get up and go!

Rating: 5/5 Good May 27, 2015 A good drive for the price. It's reasonably quick and does the job well. Time will tell how long it lasts but one thing I've noticed, it's a lot quieter than the factory HDD on my 2011 MBP.

Rating: 2/5 Not as fast as expected April 24, 2015 I purchased this drive as an upgrade to my 2011 13" MacBook Pro Version 8,1. The five year old stock drive was slow, but was still demonstrating write/read speaks of approximately 50/60mb/s using BlackMagic's disc speed application. The new Seagate drive (with a completely clean installation of OS X Yosemite) is measuring 105/105mb/s- an improvement to be sure, but not nearly as fast as I would expect from a SSD Drive (300-400mb/s). I'm no computer guru so I will duly acknowledge that there may be a different component I haven't considered causing the rate-limiting speeds, but still- not as fast as expected. (I also upgraded the RAM). Other than that, the drive is working fine.

Response from MacSales.com, Technical Support April 24, 2015 The benefits of Hybrid are the SSD bumps the drive manages in real world loads - which while not being the same as 100% SSD, do give real world benefit that is decent compared to a platter only drive solution. BlackMagic uses incompressible data in its testing. The BlackMagic test is good for a worst case scenario of write speeds as it fully saturates the SSD portion of any hybrid. We’ve found that the QuickBench Speed Tools benchmark (which uses compressible data in its testing) shows more accurate speeds for the average user. BlackMagic does performance testing to help determine suitability/capability for various video-related functions. Raw video capture deals with compressible data… whereas conversion and editing of already compressed video file types is dealing with incompressible data. If the purpose of your benchmarking is for the optimization of a video production workstation, then BlackMagic would be the test to use – for most other purposes it isn’t going to give real-world results.

Rating: 5/5 So much faster than the old drive! March 18, 2015 My 2011 Macbook Pro boots up so fast now. My music programs all run like so smoothly: Pro Tools 11, Sampletank, Ableton, etc. I can handle nearly all the same plug in counts as my 8 core Mac Pro since my laptop is handling tasks more efficiently.

Rating: 5/5 Works Perfectly with MacBook Pro Mid 2009 November 24, 2014 I read up on drives and compatibility before choosing the Seagate 1.0 TB SATA drive. My MacBook is an Intel based duo core 2.53 and came with 500G internal drive which failed. Fortunately, Data Rescue worked and I got the files I needed booting from an external drive. I ordered the tools along with the drive and had everything the next day. I followed the instructions in the manual that came with my mac and had the old drive out and the new one in in 1/2 hour. No problems. It fired right up and formatted easily and quickly. I updated to Yosemite from Snow Leopard and ran updates for the regular software I use, including Parallels and everything is working great. I am the secretary of a small office and after reading all the reviews, I thought I could manage on my own. Thanks to everyone in the Mac forums and Mr. Fixit and other communities for their detailed advice on choosing drives, what to look out for, and to OWC for great service and fast delivery.

Rating: 5/5 Great alternative to SSD October 13, 2014 I was reluctant to move from the familiarity of a traditional hard drive to an SSD option, so I was excited to split the difference with this hybrid drive. It was a needed replacement for an aging MacBook Pro, and has given new life to an old work partner. It is fast, the price was right, and I am very happy with my purchase.

Rating: 4/5 Fast and big! February 19, 2014 This is a great product. The only issue is heat-it gets hot! But boot is faster than ever. I had a 7200 and the HD part of the drive feels just as fast. I needed the 1TB space but some faster apps and it does that well.
