I’ve had that exact same drive in operation since its release, but I don’t use it enough to actually notice a real-world difference. The boot times are quicker though, as you mentioned.

And I agree, a much larger cache would have worked wonders here. The unfortunate thing is, for about 30GB of SLC, Seagate would have had to tack $75 onto the price. I’m not too sure it’d be a hot seller if that were the case.

It is no substitute for an SSD. The 8GB cache is way to small to be effective. That being said, it does greatly reduce your boot times over a HDD.

Pity that Seagate didn’t at least double the cache size.

I personally would go with a SSD for your boot drive and a conventional HDD for storage.
