    Seagate ST1000LXA15 Reviews

    1TB FireCuda 2.5" Internal Hybrid Drive is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from faster than a normal platter drive Cloned my full platter Windows C drive by Western Digital over to this Seagate hybrid. Seems a bit slower than a Seagate hybrid drive from 2011 that I also use as my Windows C drive. Works correctly, so far, but given the durability problems reported in NewEgg comments, this drive probably won't last the 5+ years that the WD platter drive lasted. Seems to run, on average, a bit cooler than my older Seagate hybrid drive.? (It's thinner, about 5mm, so air can circulate better I suppose. Right, the plugs are still kept in the same relative position as that on a true 7mm by ?2.5 inch drive.)

    Is it 7200 or 5400 RPMs?
    Asked by: Janice J.
    It is 5400 RPM, it is definitely faster than a normal platter only drive. Now, though it has more flash storage, 8GB instead of 4GB, it seems a bit slower than my 2011 Seagate hybrid Momentus XT drive, which has the platter spinning at 7200 as best as I can tell.There's more data on this FireCuda drive on the Seagate website--at least 2 PDFs.
