Seagate Momentus XT 500 GB Hybrid Drive ST95005620AS - Owner Comments?

I am looking at this drive as a compromise since 500GB SSDs are too pricey as of yet for 3 laptops. All of them are older SATA I laptops. Seagate Momentus XT 500 GB 2.5 Inch Solid State Hybrid Drive ST95005620AS: Electronics

The unit had some problems with the early FW versions, especially with Macs.

But the majority of comments are positive.

Any SevenForums members have any direct experience with this model care to comment?

Anybody else had problems?

Hybrid Hard Drive
I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with hybrid hard drives. I have heard that there are a lot of cons to these drives. For example, I have heard that the constant power up and down has more wear on it rather than it continuously running.
