This drive works amazingI replaced a 120GB Hitachi drive in a 2007-vintage Toshiba laptop with this drive. This drive has made the computer so much faster, I can hardly believe it. For the money spent on this drive, it was well worth it.Most of the work getting the computer to work with this hard drive had to do with installing Windows and that has nothing to do with the hard drive per se. It is just a lot of work to install an operating system. My OEM Toshiba disks would not install directly to this drive. So I did a fresh install on the original hard drive and then copied the image directly to this drive. Worked great. If you are using Windows disks to set up this drive you will not have this issue.This hard drive works great. I am very happy with it.5Dishonorable manufacturer.PROS:* NONECONS:* They do not honor warranty* The drive fails quickly* When the SSD portion fails, the entire drive fails.At 10 months, this died. All data is lost. It shows up as having no MBR, boot block, etc.Salvage may be possible, but who can afford that for a home system.I keep backups, so I'll just replace mine.It appears that the flash portion died, which would contain all of the important metadata.It's not a cache. It's like a multi-tier storage subsystem without redundancy.Warranty is only 12 months, and there is no option for replacement.You have to pay return shipping and provide your own packaging.There is no cross-ship option. They only offer store credit.The credits do not work on their store, and they expire after a few months.Not only do I recommend avoiding this product,I recommend avoiding Toshiba entirely because of how their support works.1Well worth itHighly recommend this drive! Super quiet and super fast! Installed it in my 2008 model Dell Studio 17 and breathed new life into it! Much cheaper option than buying a new laptop.5Not really 7mm drivesThey may or may not work, I will never know. The rated height is 7mm, the same as the drive that came with my Lenovo X220 and X230 tablet notebook. These dries are far too tall to fit. Wrong height rating.Edit: My bad, the seller sent me the older 9.5mm drives, not the newer 7mm drives. The drives I was sent are 9.5mm tall MQ01ABD100H. What I ordered are 7.5mm MQ01ABFH 1TB drives.4Good replacement drive for high capacity laptop needs.I recently needed to replace my laptops internal drive and decided to give these hybrid drives a chance. So far I haven't noticed as much of a speed boost as I'd hoped. The boot-up speed is still about the same as it had been. Application usage HAS increased though... Even some of the more intensive applications I use, such as Finale, open super quickly. All in all, its a nice drive at a good price point. Can't argue with that...4Great ps4 part replacementItem worked great in my PS4 no issues5Five Starsworking fine after a long time5Easy installation and till now it's working really wellIt works really well, really speeds up my laptop. Easy installation and till now it's working really well.5Five StarsI use this as the boot drive for my home storage server. Windows Server 2012 R2. I have not timed the exact boot up time but it is less than 10 seconds. Shut down is similar less than 10 seconds. I would like to add that when my server is running the total memory used is 1.3 GB So I would assume that when I reboot the entire boot process is saved in the nand flash. I am not sure. When it comes to booting your windows 7, 8, 10 etc I do not think you will see a major improvement. Use an SSD for your day to day use computer or gaming rig.5Short lifeDied after 8 months.1
