Summary Don't get me wrong I like the drive. But I own an SSD(I've had one for a few years now) witch reads 500MB/s so even these hybrid drives don't compare. If you want to save money and speed up the desktop a little this is the product for you, but if you're looking for pure performance get and SSD with a storage drive.
Pros Inexpensive good balance between speed and capacity
Cons I guess it could use more nand than 8 GB.
Summary By about the 10 reboot after a clean windows install, the boot times sped up quite a bit. It's about how fast it was previously when I had an OCZ SSD in this machine (had 3 different OCZ SSD's in various machines die at the 2 year mark). When opening an app not on the SSD cache, it's about the speed of a fast HDD. This type of drive is good in a case with limited drive bay space, or when building a machine for someone that wouldn't be up for manually keeping track what drive their installing programs on (when using a separate SSD/HDD)
