Anyone owns/ed any? If so are they worth more over an SSD+HDD combo? Just being courious here, heard they are pretty fast and cheap.

I purchased one on accident a week ago and I love it. I haven't even turned it into my boot drive yet, just housing my photo library, and it's amazing the response time in loading hundreds of 25MB files compared to my older 1TB spindle.

But next time, I'll pay more attention and get a true SSD for my boot drive

I personally wouldn't go for an SSHD for reliability reasons. You essentially have two hard drives in one which doubles the chance of failure.

In an ideal situation like if the SSD portion of the drive failed, it would do so gracefully and still allow access to the data on the platters, but that's an unknown.

If I wanted a SSD for caching, I'd just get a discrete drive for that purpose. It'd only cost a bit more for a similar sized SSD or an M.2 card for motherboards that supported it.
