Seagate's Solid State Hybrid Drive is a laptop hard disk drive that combines the capacity of a hard disk with some of the fast-transfer characteristics of a solid-state drive (SSD). The resulting drive has a small and thin form factor, with a low price point, and these are the two main selling points of this model. It uses NAND logic and an adaptive memory function which identifies the most frequently-used data on your computer to make it more quickly available. Seagate estimates that the overall speed of this drive is about 5x faster than a 5400RPM HDD. This product is available in two different capacities, of 500GB and 1TB. Purchasers should note that these different capacities result in a different size: The 500GB model measures 7mm in width whereas the 1TB model is 9.5mm.
