    • The good:
      Affordable, SSD-like, Speedy, Cheaper than SSDs, Quiet Operation
    • The bad:
      Heat issues, Pricier than other hard drives

    The Seagate Momentus XT 500 GB 7200 RPM 32 MB Serial ATA II is a solid state hybrid drive with a hard drive storage that works well with small form factor desktop personal computers, laptops and external backups. It is claimed to be eighty per cent quicker than the typical 7200 RPM drive and it comes with a limited five year warranty. This solid state hybrid drive is a decent substitute to classic laptop hard drives. However, this drive needs enough cooling devices. It is hot when it operates and may even melt some of the inner parts of the laptop or the motherboard.

     

    For others with roomy drive bays and better cooling devices, heat might not be an issue. Nevertheless there are other users whose Momentus XT 500 GB has no heat issues. As for its speed, booting up or loading up applications are done in no time at all. It can bring life to an old laptop. It can also revive a Macbook Pro that has gone unacceptably sluggish. This drive is surprisingly intelligent especially when gaming and it has the capacity to remember an array of maps. Aside from having a cheaper price than that of a solid state drive, the Momentus also has a bigger storage and both of their features are somewhat similar. It is speedy but not speedier than that of an SSD.

     

    There are solid state drives that have the same storage capacity just like this Momentus drive but are at least ten times pricier. For those who would like to have the power of the solid state drive at a very minimal price, then this Momentus XT 500 GB might be the right one. On the other hand, this drive has a selling price that is definitely higher compared to typical hard drives but, of course, the capacity and performance can be considered a lot better. The Momentus is integrated with a 4 GB of flash memory. The exterior looks classic but the inside is equipped with the Adaptive Memory Technology which mechanically moves the repeatedly utilized data into the flash memory for lightning fast access.

     

    This built-in feature doesn't need any software to become operational and it functions autonomously from the operating system. Just like other hard drives, the Momentus is not supportive of SATA III which is becoming the standard these days. On the other hand, this drive spins at 7,200 RPM compared to 5,400 RPM of traditional laptop hard drives. The boot up speed of this hybrid hard drive is considered the fastest and data transfer is one of its strength. It performs at an admirable speed from booting up to launching and working on applications. The Momentus XT 500 GB works quietly and surprises many users with its speed. It is affordable compared to SSDs, although it is still more expensive than other hard drives. Its features are reliable and it has gained a lot of compliments from users. It is definitely highly recommended.
