Seagate Tag - Far Edge Technology http://faredge.com.au/blog.html Tue, 23 May 2017 01:22:33 +1000 Joomla! - Open Source Content Management en-gb Speed test: 2.5" Seagate Momentus XT Hybrid SSD vs Hitachi SATA HDD http://faredge.com.au/blog/entry/speed-test-25q-seagate-momentus-xt-hybrid-ssd-vs-hitachi-sata-hdd.html http://faredge.com.au/blog/entry/speed-test-25q-seagate-momentus-xt-hybrid-ssd-vs-hitachi-sata-hdd.html  I've been feeling the slow pinch on my laptop recently, and decided to upgrad to the hybrid SSD drives to see how much they improved things. The short answer is quite a bit - it's dramatically improved some things. The results from my own testing of my laptop are detailed below. I tested by cloning my old harddrive to the new Seagate drive - Hitachi HTS723232L9A360 (320G SATA2 3Gbs 7200rpm) to Seagate Momentus XT 320Gb 7200rpmā€¦

Some numbers (these are taken using a stopwatch, me typing to login etc so this is obviously highly unscientific, but still interesting). Times are in seconds.
