  1. Hi there, I have an ASUS N53SN laptop with a Seagate Momentus 750GB HDD which I bought around 2013. It sometimes makes some noises when the BITS has started in Windows 7. But the main problem is that HD Sentinel reports a health of only 12% while the performance is 100%. It also says "The drive found 168 bad sectors during its self-test. There are 168 weak sectors found on the disk surface. They may be remapped any time in the later use of the disk. 742 errors occurred during data transfer." Now I want to replace this HDD, however, I'm not sure which product is the best choice for me? I'm looking for a more reliable HDD with more speed. I don't know if SSHD's are good but I don't want to buy an SSD because they are overpriced in the country which I'm living and I think I won't need that high speed too much. Some people say go for HITACHI HDD's, some recommend WD Black or Black Caviar, and some suggest Seagate products. I know they can all fail, I'm searching for the most reliable choice. I have a WD Green in a desktop and it makes loud and annoying noises much worse than my Seagate in my laptop, despite the fact that I bought the WD Green recently and have not used it often. So the bottom line is I'm looking for a nice reliable hard disk for my laptop with the capacity of at least 750GB and much faster than my current one. Any recommendations would be much appreciated. Thanks.
  2. Any plans to test this Seagate SSHD? I do wonder how it fares with the added 32GB on top of the regular 8GB of NAND.
  3. Hello! I'm torn between buying one of these 3 drives for use as my PC's boot drive: Seagate ST2000DX001 SSHD: 196BGN (~113 USD or 99 EUR) Toshiba DT01ACA200: 144BGN (~83 USD or 74 EUR) Toshiba P300 HDWD120EZSTA: 167BGN (~96 USD or 85 EUR) Looking at them, you might say that the SSHD is inherently better, however I'm worried about the reliability of seagate drives in general. Out of the 17 "broken" PC's I was busy diagnosing and repairing last month, 5 had dead hard drives, 4 of which were Seagate drives. As for the new Toshiba P300 series, the reason for me to consider it is that the other Toshiba drive I'm looking at is a bit old at 54-ish months. That and also the fact I'm expecting some performance improvements with the P300, although I haven't been able to find any benchmarks to confirm this. Regarding SSDs: I'll get one about a year from now, when I'll do a complete system upgrade. It's not economically feasible for me right now. Regarding WD Blacks: They're far too expensive where I live, nearly twice the price of competing 2TB drives. And from reviews I've read, they seem too noisy and hot. Regarding why 2TB and not more: My current PC is rather old - 3.8GHz E8500-based, which means it doesn't have a UEFI BIOS, which means I can't utilize a drive larger than 2.2TB as a boot drive. So what's your opinion? Has anyone had any experience with these P300 drives?
