They're not nearly as good as an SSD, but they are definitely better than a regular hard drive...even a 10K or 15K hard drive (pretty much rendering those pointless).

i got one for my laptop it good but they won't be as good as a ssd and aren't practical in terms of cost difference for just data. I haven't had reliably issue either. A desktop would be likely be better of just using a ssd and a hd. hybrid drive are better option for laptop due to the fact the most laptop only support 1 hd.
