I love small form factor storage. I have 10k enterprise Seagates. I will use them all the time.

Hybrid Drives are really great, but the relatively small amount of flash memory on this drive was a little disappointing (only 8GB) It's enough for most critical OS files so boot times are very fast, but beyond that, it's nothing to write home about. Additionally, the 5400 RPM HDD is lackluster and slow by today's standards; using it is reminiscent of a bygone era when HDDs didn't have to compete with SSDs and high-speed HDD of 7200 and 15000+ RPMs. The lag when loading and installing things is very noticeable to someone who is very used to an SSD.
On the bright side, it worked just fine and the 1TB of storage is plenty for most people's needs (gamers included). If storage speed isn't really a priority for you, then I would be happy recommending this part. If it is a priority, however, I would implore you to save the money and put it towards an SSD or at least a high-spec HDD.
