Still, it's a concept that was long past due. You have to give WD points for coming out with it. Mayhap Samsung will jump in with a series of them. I would be all over one that had a SSD with the quality and performance of an 840 EVO or PRO and a 500GB spinner to keep the cost down (500GB is a sweet spot for me even though I believe one can never have too much storage ).

Seagate is planning on announcing a device similar to this.

Also, even if one of the modules fails on the drive, the other part would/should still work fine. Western digital has a great warranty on their products as well.
I have had to use it once, and they paid for the shipping and everything. Giving me an option of sending me a new drive now, and then send in the broken later, or just sending in the broken now and getting the new one later.

I was pleased with their warranty, I have a standard 7 year warranty on both my WD Black edition drives. Best part of it all is they do not pull that 30 day crap. The warranty continues on like nothing happened. So if your drive has 4 years of warranty left, and you send it in you still keep that 4 years.

Really neat would use one of those if I ever have a laptop in the future if they are priced reasonably known to be good drives.

How did you get a seven year warranty on a WD Black? All I ever see are five year warranties.

Dual Drive looks to be a good idea, I wonder if they will become popular

$299.00 = £183.235

I don't know.

Bought them from newegg. I didn't pay for any additional warranties or anything.
When I called up WD they stated that was how long my warranties are on the drives.

Well it is a very interesting development for laptops. However, it ties the life to that of the hdd, which will be shorter than the SSD. Only relevant if you plan on keeping the laptop for 3 or more years.

I think this must be short lived solution with improvements in non-volatile storage that are on the horizon, and with even current high capacity SSD like the Samsung EVO.
