Windows 7: Buying a Seagate SSHD for my laptop?

An SSD is THE biggest upgrade you can make to a computer in terms of performance.......that is the truth. If you buy crap SSD's, don't expect them to last. For around $100 you can get a 128GB SSD that will blow your mind. This thread makes my head hurt. Good luck

Ssd's are good for in my option

Gaming
Windows OS
Applications used that you require like let's say Video rendering
There is more


Hdd will do everything that an ssd does with out the price tag if you look properly you will find one slightly faster or slightly slower

No decent SSD will be slower than a hard drive. You all need to brush up on SSD's vs hdd's. If he is looking at a hybrid SSD/HDD, he obviously wants better performance. Not even the fastest 10k RPM will compare to an SSD.

I believe I will go for the Seagate drive.
The Samsung drive provides too little space and it's more expensive. And, as the computer mostly runs browser and Office applications, it doesn't need to read lots of information either.

Thanks for all your help I will write my results when I get my hard drive!

Ok, you had one SDD fail, one with a Sandforce controller. Big deal! So that makes you an expert on SSDs? HDDs also fail. Almost anything can fail; that's why they have warranties. Check the reviews on Newegg for Samsung's 840s and 840 Pros; they are much better than reviews for any HDD. Frankly, the number of people who recommend SSDs far, far outnumber you.

Well, my crappy HDD definitely failed. That's why I'm getting a new one!

EDIT: Anyways BigTabs is saying my needs don't require a SSD. I don't know about you but I agree with him.
