Seagate Laptop SSHD Review (ST1000LM014) – Conclusion

Really though the SSHD is not designed to benchmark, it is designed to monitor how you use a system and optimise its storage to maximise performance for your needs. Therefore there is  a period of time where the drive learns what it needs to do and then increases performance over a few days to a level where it is noticeably more responsive than a traditional drive. Boot times do speed up first and key apps after that.

Summary: Good build quality and a decent warranty mixed with performance improvements for those upgrading from a traditional 2.5″ drive. A well rounded product.

  1. I find the performance continues to ramp up if you use it daily for at least a week.. between windows superfetch adjusting to your type of use and the drive intelligently doing basically the same thing, the best performance doesn’t seem to be set in place until at least a week of steady daily start ups and shut downs… sleep states do not help (though with systems that fire up now faster from a cold boot than from a sleep state…..why do people still insist on sleeping a system (hibernation).)

    I’ve a few older systems that boot up even faster than the 11 seconds.

    120MB/s sustained on the outer edge of the platters seems a bit high for a 1TB 5400RPM mechanical drive. The hybrid portion is not active then. But yeah the graph says ‘max’ not average or sustained, nevermind.
